I love sewing because it is so rewarding to start with a simple piece of cloth (like a canvas) and create something amazing. It is such an accomplishment to say “I made that”!!! Congrats on the book and thanks for the giveaway!

Hate to say it but I love the immediate gratification it gives me to see something I worked hard for to be completed and I like that the finished piece is a little bit of me even if it was from a pattern.

I love to sew doll clothes for my six yr old daughter… I have four children and can’t afford to buy doll clothes so I make them for her…
