i've been feeling a need to create lately. it's amazing how good it makes me feel. sweeping, laundry, dishes, those are all things that you do and then the next day they need to be done again and again. sewing though, it really makes me feel like i've accomplished something. when i complete a sewing project, it's finished and i get to use it again and again. yes, a very good feeling. i highly recommend skipping your dishes and/or laundry and doing a little sewing instead, and if you decide to take my advice the keykalou pattern i used to make the purse above is a quick and simple project and also on sale here in her etsy shop (created in portland, OR). it's practically instant gratification, and who can resist a project where you get to use a cute button? not i.
