When I get a piece of fabric that I love, I have a hard time cutting in to it. It’s silly really, because why have it hiding away in my cupboard, when it could be made into something I might actually use and enjoy. I don’t know what it is. For one, I just don’t trust my sewing skills enough. And I can never decide what it is worthy of becoming–a simple pillow, a quilt, a bag…? So, the truth is, I’ve got a big stash of fabric that I love and have yet to work up the courage to actually cut into. Cutting, stitching–it’s all so permanent.
But, when Kristen sent me a new batch of fabric recently, she made me promise I’d cut into some of the fabric that she’d given me in the past. So this week I finally worked up the nerve and put some to use. Technically, I did cut the fabric but I think this is really baby steps in my "favorite fabric cutting therapy".
I got the four cork board tiles at Target. And my initial thought was that I would use these as little inspiration boards above my desk. But once they were all made, the idea of sticking little pins through the beautiful fabric was too painful to think about. So they became some fresh artwork for above the bed.
So I did it. Baby steps, but I did it.
And a big thank you to my husband who measured and hung the boards while I got to slip out of the house and run a few errands all. by. my. self. xo.
