Learn to Sew
Save some cash
It’s no secret that sewing can save you money. Knowing how to sew allows you to make simple repairs to garments. Hem your own jeans, sew on a missing button, repair an open seam. All of these will extend a garment’s life and save you a little money.
Sense of Accomplishment
The best reason for learning to sew is the sense of accomplishment that comes from creating something handmade. Seeing your own hand-sewn creations ~ well if you’ve ever felt it you know what I’m talking about. Conquering sewing jeans gave me this sense of accomplishment. I now have the confidence to make my own custom-fit jeans anytime I want.
Around the home, sewing can be a real door opener. With an inexpensive sewing machine from Walmart or Joann’s you can take a builder’s grade home and turn it into something magazine worthy. And it doesn’t take a lot of skill or time either. If you can cut fabric and sew a straight line then you can make throw pillows and curtains for every room in your house.
