When I noticed the rip in Shane D'Costa's shirt, I insisted that he change into a bathrobe robes so that I could mend the tear. It's nice having a sewing kit handy. I find few clothes that I particularly enjoy, so I like taking care of them. It's also nice to be able to do little things for other people.
I know a number of people who know how to sew. Leigh Honeywell made her own prom dress. Totally impressive. =)
I don't have the space for a sewing machine just yet. I'm tempted to learn how to sew well enough to make things that I'd consider well-made. I suppose I wouldn't do too badly with some sewing and embroidery skills, though, because I can then embellish basic forms.
I enjoy wearing clothes that say something about me, whether it's my appreciation of traditional culture or my quirkiness when it comes to computer T-shirts. I like being able to maintain such clothes and maybe even modify or create new things. Besides, sending something as simple as that out for alteration or tailoring is expensive, especially considering how little time it takes to fix something. =)
So yeah, sewing. S'fun. I like knitting, too, and look forward to picking it up again this winter.
