I started sewing as a young girl because my mom’s favorite hobby was sewing, and she taught me how to do it. For the longest time, I sewed on my Mom’s sewing machine. Later when I was sixteen years old, my parents gave me a sewing machine for Christmas that I still have and use today. It’s a Kenmore-12 Stitch and still works like I champ! Ever since we moved into our home two years ago, I’ve started getting back to my true roots and love of homemaking and sewing.
A Season For Everything
Have you ever noticed how life goes through cycles? I go through phases where I will do something for months or even years. Then I stop and won’t do it again for a long time. That’s how sewing is with me. I just started sewing again after a ten year break and am enjoying it so much again! Many of you are familiar with why I started Creating Home. I was a full-time homemaker for almost twenty years before my divorce. My life completely changed after that when I moved in with my parents for four years while I could get a degree in interior design. After I graduated, started working, and moved into my home, my life has come full-circle again where I’m back to doing what I love again.
I’ve recently started making my own aprons because I love them so much. Bib aprons are my favorite, and that’s what I’m making here. If you don’t sew and are looking for cute aprons, my favorite place to shop for aprons is Anthropologie. I’m sharing a few of my favorites below.
Do you have any hobbies that you start and stop but always return to? I’d love to hear about them!
