Episode 7: How to get your Sewjo Back


In this episode I share a few ideas on how to get your sewjo (or sewing motivation) back!

In this episode I talk a bit about dresses. I mention a fun little book I’ve been enjoying. It’s this book, but I purchased mine from Indigo here in Canada. Here is my Instragram post with the dress I made from the bustier pattern.
The other dress I made can be seen here. Check out our Facebook group for more info on that.
I also mentioned the Lengends Dress from Sew Straight and Gather as well as the Zadie from Tilly & The Buttons.
Here’s the link to my PDF Pattern shop that I mention 🙂 http://etsy.com/shop/appletreepatternco


The 5 possible reasons why you might have lost your sewing motivation are:
1. You need to be inspired- I discuss how you can use social media to jumpstart your inspiration.
2. You are sewing for your business- I share some changes I made to my sewing business to make it more fun for me to sew.
3. You are bored of sewing- I give you a few new things you might like to learn to do that are sewing related.
4. You don’t have time to sew- I tell you a bit about what I do to manage my sewing time in a more effective way.
5. You are working on a big project- I share my advice, but later in the episode we get some listener advice on how to get motivated to work on those big projects.
I have one additional tip I recommend if you have lost your sewjo and that is to try making something useful.

We also hear advice from 3 of our friends on social media: Ieva from @everyspecialday on instagram, @girlandboyd on Instagram,  and @bjoys4 on instagram.

At the end of this episode I share a bit about how sometimes it is okay to lose your sewjo and not try to get it back.
