Did you know that September is Sewing Month?! You may recall that last year, I got really into sewing. Honestly it was my saving grace during a very stressful year. I found sewing to be a perfect creative outlet that pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I loved that I learned a new skill and had fun challenging myself with increasingly difficult projects. I found it to be very meditative even, and there was something so satisfying about having a physical product to hold.
This year, I sadly didn’t have a lot of extra time for sewing projects. Every week that I didn’t pull out the sewing machine made the next one even harder. I would walk past the machine sitting on the shelf and feel a little sad and a little disappointed that I had let yet another week go by where I hadn’t sewn. I started to grow intimidated again.
When Walmart reached out about doing a sponsored post in celebration of Sewing Month, I said yes!!! I thought it was the perfect excuse for me to dust off my machine and get back in the game. I’m here to confirm after completing this project that I love sewing just as much as I remembered. (Maybe even more now that my free time is that much more precious…. It’s genuinely something I want to commit to finding time for.)
Sewing is a hobby where you can kind of get carried away with supplies. Honestly, it’s half the fun! For example, I have a huge stash of fabric stored away just waiting for the perfect project. Walmart has absolutely everything you need to get started if you’re just dipping your toes into the water or if you’re a seasoned sewer looking for a new tool, machine, or (!!!) more fabric.
Walmart carries all of the sewing machines you could possibly need to get your new hobby off the ground. Depending on what you’re looking to do, Walmart can help point you in the right direction of machines to consider. For Sewing Month, Walmart is offering sewing deals on select products.
I’ve personally had my eye on a serger. If I do find myself sewing more, especially clothing pieces, I think I will make the splurge!
I decided to get back into the sewing game by sewing Kate Eva Designs’ Pisa bow bag. Below are the products I purchased from Walmart to complete it.
I also have to share my absolute favorite sewing tool. It’s not totally necessary, as you can absolutely get away with using whatever iron you currently own. However, once you try a crafting iron, which is small enough to really do some detailed ironing, you won’t be able to go back.
Voilà!! An easy, fun project to do on a weekend afternoon during naptime!
I love hearing about your own sewing adventures! Definitely let me know what projects you’re working on or if you are interested in getting started what you’re most excited to make!
Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post!
