Quilting/sewing/crafting can actually make one a better person! Consider how this is so.
Recently, I decided that this tote bag needed a zipper closure instead of button and loop closure, since that would make it more practical to use.
The tote bag was completely finished. To add a zipper would entail ripping out seams in the lining, and other tedious tasks.
It would requires patience, persistence, and determination........
These qualities also help a person deal with many situations in life in a positive manner.
Who of us couldn't use more patience from time to time? A patient person is a pleasure to be around. So our relationships flourish.
To be able to persist in doing something of value, despite obstacles, results in confidence in oneself. Self- confidence contributes to success in many areas of life.
Determination to stick to a course we know is beneficial, allows us to accomplish much good for others and ourselves.
Many other good qualities are strengthened by quilting/sewing/crafting. Can you think of a few?
Here is the tote bag redesigned with a zipper closure. Much better don't you think? And my patience, persistence and determination has improved too.
So they next time you are faced with one of those oh-so-tedious sewing tasks, remember you are are building valuable life skills as you do it!
