Why put yourself in sewing?

Not so long ago, sewing was practiced in each home, for both practical and economic reasons. Gradually, it has become more a hobby. However, the popularity of the homemade has given its letters of nobility to sewing and there are more and more of us to practice it today. If you haven't tried it yet, here are some good reasons to start sewing.

The seam is affordable and allows you to save money

Let's start with the earth-to-earth assets of sewing, but certainly not negligible: its economic aspect. When you go out in sewing, the acquisition of a new or used sewing machine costs you a hundred euros, which allows you to invest cautiously. If you are passionate about your new activity, you can then go to a more sophisticated model. In any case, a machine is designed to last a long time.

You find many free tutorials on the internet, which allows you to easily learn sewing, without investing. To give you an example we are a fan of Sarah de @todotoutoux blog Lots of couture tips!

On a site like My Little Coupon, you can get tfrom the largest fashion houses, without breaking the bank. After transformation, you are adorned in outfits that you will have designed according to your tastes, for a modest sum. Not only do you have the satisfaction of creating your wardrobe yourself, but you save money. 

Sewing also allows you to repair your clothes - and those of children! - whose lifespan you extend, which is another source of economy.

Sewing is not only a hobby. Couture allows you to dress, you and your family. You only realize tailor-made, which is not always easy to find in the trade.

With a little experience, you can diversify with the creation of all kinds of accessories: bags, plaids, cushion covers, armchairs or sofas, wallets, tablecloths and tablecloths, carpets, manics, etc. 

Couture is easily integrated into your schedule

Couture does not depend on the weather, it does not force you to plan time to move (as for sport for example) and it does not need to be planned. As soon as you want and have a short niche, get out of your machine and your accessories only takes you a few seconds. 

You interrupt yourself when you want or when you have to, because the seam does not imply any hourly commitment.

Couture is the best way to take a break, without stress. You have fun while having fun and you join the useful to the pleasant, quite simply!
