  43. How to pick a favorite part of sewing . . . ? I love the process (except sometimes for all the cutting!), but I mostly love making something useful or beautiful out of something that was neither before that. I like for the things I make to be used and it is totally gratifying to see something I made (especially for a child) be loved and cherished. I made my niece a stuffed dog when she was born and she still sleeps with him every night (she's now 5!) Best.Feeling.Ever.

  167. My favorite part about sewing is the fact that it just draws me in. It has such a soothing affect on me because my boys know that when I'm at my sewing machine, they pretty much don't bug me. Gives me some quiet moments.

    Thanks for the chance!

  176. I haven't sewn in over 20 years (making clothes big things etc) I still do hand sewing, but my machine is dead...I am supposed to get one after the holidays. BUT...when I sewed regularly, I loved that I could pick the style with the fabric, and not rely on what was in the store.

    I also like that once I get a new machine, I'll be able to use it in my mixed media art and paper crafts as well.

    This is a lovely bag! Nice job.
    Thanks for the opportunity :)
