Like life, sewing is not perfect. :)
There is always a seam that needs to be ripped out or you will see a mistake after a project is completed.
The other day, I was looking at the quilt I have hanging in my living room. It's the very first quilt I made. It is full of what I would now call mistakes, but in the beginning I was proud of my creation, not seeing the flaws.
I am still proud of it but for different reasons. Looking at my first quilt reminds me that nothing is perfect and with each quilt I learn something new. I have also found this true with the handbags and tote bags I make. That's the fun in creating something with your hands; it's growing, learning and accomplishing new ideas each time you work.
So the next time you have to rip out a seam...
