I have a very silly sense of humor. A few weeks ago, I really wanted to sign off on a blog post by saying "May the stitches be ever in your favor." Today I wanted to title this post "Dumplings, It's What's for Dinner."
I apologize in advance if something like this ever sneaks through. I will try to control myself.
As my experiments in sewing continue, I've decided I'm ready to sew something with a zipper. Michelle's Dumpling Zip Pouch tutorial is my weekend project. I'm a little nervous, but I've really taken to heart some advice Michelle recently gave me regarding sewing.
You just have to go for it.
In preparation for my dumpling making, I've been scouring the Flickr feed for inspiration. I'm the type of person who likes to read about things, look at examples, read some more (is there a library book I can check out?) and then finally, just go for it.
What is the best piece of sewing advice you've received? Or something you learned on your own that you wished you knew when you first started sewing?
I challenge you to make your own dumpling this weekend.
