Texas Fold’em (Sew With Your Feet Challenge)

I’m putting my rather anemic challenge down for its eternal slumber. :-p I saw this on Instagram and realized that I’m not the one to lead any kind of challenge or sew along. I’ve still got “tutorials” in the pipeline for more feet, but I’m just going to post them and let people find them useful or not. I may also make videos for the other non-standard notions I’ve collected, because why not?

On the plus side, I’ve actually been sewing pretty regularly, and have a number of new garments to share with you!

  1. Ebi, I completely agree with Tasha. Don’t let comparison to one of *the* biggest sewing blogs get you down. If you enjoy running sewalongs and posting videos, I say keep doing it! Personally I have been enjoying them, and I always enjoy the enthusiasm for sewing that you bring to your blog. As my parents always told me, there is always going to be someone better than you, but it doesn’t mean you should give up. Just do what makes you happy. :)

    1. Aw, thanks Carolyn! My parents always told me that, too — it sounds terrible, but it’s a very helpful way to look at things. I don’t mind being small potatoes, as long as I know I’m being useful. Being able to contribute makes me happy!

  2. I’m disappointed to read this. :-/ If you want to have a challenge or do a sewalong, I don’t see what should stop you. You have readers. And I was learning a lot from your posts and was actually making an effort to use my different feet because of your challenge.

    I’ll just say, don’t let comparison keep you from doing what you feel. Make your own lane out here in these streets. I’ll be watching for the other videos.

    1. Awww!! I was worried I was boring people talking about presser feet …. that, and I’ve been so disorganized and behind schedule in posting videos and blogs for the challenge. Maybe I’ll try again in the future, when I’m a little more organized — but I am definitely going to make videos for the presser feet I intended for the challenge. I really feel that presser feet and other small, overlooked notions can open up a world of possibilities for us, if we just get familiar with them.

      Anyway, many thanks for chiming in Tasha :)
