Today I learnt how to sew for the first time ever !!! You guys have no idea how excited I was and how long I waited to finally actually get how the sewing machine works! I'll admit I was struggling at the beginning - big time. I wouldn't do anything (not even pull the thread through the needle *face-palm*) in fear of doing something so horribly wrong. Believe it or not, I somehow thought it was possible for me to accidently poke myself with the sewing-machine's needle . . . Yeah, cue another face-palm over here and an eye-roll.
Okay, I was both excited and nervous with a capital N.
I mean, it was my first time trying something that I wanted to do so bad since foreeeever.
And now I finally got to sew. And I'm happy about that. I was feeling proud of myself really.
And all I did was attach the two pieces of cotton fabric together.
And I was feeling so proud of myself for just doing THAT?! Anyone could that. I mean, really!
And that is the thing. Anyone can do that . . . But not anyone can just do something simple so easily - some struggle, anxious thoughts pop up now and then, some feel discouraged, some give up.
I'm not perfect at this sewing-business, I know. My aim was to stitch that perfect straight line on my garment and at so many attempts I failed. Man, I asked three people to help me out but still for some reason I kept on failing stitching that darn straight stitch! And it's seems sewing is quite compulsory for one that wants to become a fashion designer.
(Obviously . . . I think)
But I didn't want to give up. I barely even started with this whole sewing stuff, really. I didn't want it to finish as soon as it started and besides I had a feeling that this whole trip to becoming a fashion designer is pretty viable but only if I do not give up and I keep on trying and practicing and if I work hard. Then yes, this dream is viable.
All this is just the beginning. A small beginning that will hopefully (Inshallah) lead to a whimsical, stupendous, phenomenal, successful end. 😁
Big ideas have small beginnings, right?
