Hand Sewing

Does anyone enjoy hand sewing?

I had to cuff something today and I forgot how much I enjoy hand sewing.

I feel the same way. I was rushing a bit and I still feel like it turned out better than if I had used a machine.

The same for me. I wish I were better at machine sewing and actually had one. Lol.

Re: Hand Sewing

If you mean just hand sewing when I could use a machine, uh, no. Machine is much faster. But I do enjoy hand embroidery.

Re: Hand Sewing

Nope. Not me. Last time I completely hand sewed anything I was about 14 years old. It was a simple dress for my little sisters' doll. I am now 41. I swore I would never do that again. I never have. But, i have arthritis. My hands tend to freeze up and become horribly painful. I suspect I had the beginnings of it back then as I remember my hands hurting.

Re: Hand Sewing

I wouldn't want to hand sew an entire item, but as far as patching something or hand sewing a small area I can do that well, I'm just not good with machines, can't seem to get them to do right for me (at least the past couple times I've tried) I need someone who sews to help me! But I don't have anyone who does.

Re: Hand Sewing

I love hand sewing. My friend and I make hand sewn wall art that anyone could do. We staple fabric around a used frame, stretching it tight, then cut out a shape (bird, buffalo, mountains, etc) and hand sew around the edges of the shape. It turns out really cute and would be perfect for a nursery!
