ADD PERSONAL TOUCHES TO YOUR WARDROBE
EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY
MAKE MORE SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING CHOICES
BY LEARNING TO KNIT AND SEW?
All this is possible, starting from your first project.
It's no secret that learning a new skill takes some time and effort. But having a good plan is half the work.
Download your 6 Sustainable Steps to declutter your wardrobe and find out what you really need in your wardrobe to make your knitting and sewing journey more streamlined, starting from stitch one.
A sustainable, enjoyable and overwhelm-free knitting and sewing journey is both fun and serves a purpose – that purpose is having personalized garments and accessories that you will actually wear while expressing your creativity. Even as a complete beginner you can start with easier and simpler projects that meet your needs. And you decide how much of your wardrobe you want to make.
You may want to personalize your wardrobe because of...
- the poor quality of store bought clothes
- never finding clothes that you're looking for and therefore having to settle for what's available
- never finding clothes that fit your body
- the ecological and ethical issues related to the mass production of clothes
- the way plastic takes over your wardrobe (Hello polyester and acrylic!)
- not having enough clothes for different seasons
You may be a beginner at both knitting and sewing, or you already know how to do one but want to learn the other skill, too, because let’s face it – knitting and sewing are skills that complement each other.
- with knitting, you create your fabric from scratch using yarn, so you have more options in terms of the materials you choose and textures you create
- with sewing, you get to play with prints and have access to ready-made materials
- sewing is your speedy option
- knitting gives the opportunity to create your projects on the go
- with both skills under your belt, you broaden your options on what you can create to personalize your wardrobe
In addition, learning to personalize your wardrobe by knitting and sewing allows you to
- get a sense of accomplishment
- see the end-result of the effort you put in (something that we don't always get in today's working life)
- be able to relax while doing something useful
- have a positive impact on your mental health and body image
- have fun planning your projects and deciding on colors, materials and patterns you use
- feel proud of yourself
- feel proud of your wardrobe because you added your personal touch to it
Not bad, huh?
