I really enjoy looking on handmade markets for inspiration.
Often I’ll look at something and think “I can make that”. A few times I would actually attempt to have a go but often enough I don’t.
Maybe it’s because I don’t have the time or another idea pops in my mind, the fact of matter is: ‘When should you buy or make something?“
I prefer to sew only things that challenge me creatively. With time being scarce, I find myself buying more. Not a problem for clothes as I love buying quality key items and there are things I would never sew.
Yesterday I bought this fox. Yes, I could have made it but it was so liberating not having to.
*Just to clarify. I don’t think its cool copying the idea, but to adapt and inspire.
I want to know were do you draw the line between making and buying?
