Let me introduce myself: I am a bare foot, loud music, tea drinker, singing out loud sewist! Yes, I have a few ‘non sewing’, sewing habits.
I don’t like to sew wearing shoes. Barefoot on the summer, socks during winter. Not even slippers allowed.
I don’t like to sew in silence and generally the music is playing out loud with my untuned singing voice following along.
I drink cups and cups of tea while i’m working. I have a huge 500ml mug that gets constantly filled. The only thing is that I hate lukewarm tea. It’s hot or cold, baby!
I don’t like to sew without space, so if there is stuff on the table, will be dropped in the floor till I need it back. I try to behave when sewing with friends.
I have two ‘sewing bins’, one for fabric scraps that go to recycling and another for general rubbish. The bits of fabric I still can use goes on the floor till I finish the project. Then I decide if goes to the recycling bin or scrap box. (Generally only cotton goes to my scrap box)
Now that you know some of my non sewing behaviour while sewing, why don’t you share yours…
