The Sewing Productivity Experiment - Bags, Bags, Bags

I made it!
During June, I have managed to sew about 3 hours a day every weekday. I even squeezed in some weekend sewing time because I was on a roll and just couldn't stop!

I mostly made bags as teacher's gifts and as samples for my Jil Sander's inspired shopping bag. I refashioned 2 dresses, 1 skirt, I almost finished the Calvin Klein and did some work on another dress. I learned to use a serger. I made a leather bag... and I feel fine!

I also filled my first order ever! Yeah me!

I tried to keep real working habits and took a mid-morning break.

The hardest part was to cut myself off the Interweb in the morning and stop sewing so I could attend to other duties.

I have hardly sewn for myself at all and was just as happy. Maybe I'm not that selfish after all...maybe the sewing part makes me happy.

This is good and this is what I wanted to find out in doing this exercise. Can I discipline myself enough to work from home? Yes. Can I sew repeats without getting bored? Yes. Can I sew for other people than myself? Yes.

It turns out I can, so I will. Stay tuned as I work out my evil plan to take over the world... in September!
