GRWM: How to get ready to sew | WITHWENDY

Hey everyone! It’s me, Wendy I usually make sewing tutorials but today I wanted to do a “Get Ready With Me” sewing edition! I hope you find this inspiring to get started on whatever it is you’ve been waiting to create. Now, let’s start from the beginning of your new project! First… VISUALIZE Read books, go shopping go surfing, go scrolling!? Or just pay attention to your environment until you see something you want to… DECONSTRUCT Now look closely, flip it inside out, modify it to your liking or draw it as many times as you like. Until you’re ready to… MEASURE What size do you need? What is that in centimetres? How wide should this piece be? Always leave room for mistakes, and write it all down so you don’t forget. This will be your… LIST Here’s where you should include all your materials what they mean and the steps you need to put things together. If you’re shooting, list your shots too. This is the list that you’ll bring with you as you… GATHER Some of the things you need will already be at home, some will be in your neighbourhood, and some will be on its way to your mailbox. Try not to do this in a hurry because the second last step is to… RELAX Creativity comes with being in the right mindset. Start your music, or podcasts lay out your tools, find a mirror, and tune in to your instincts because it’s time to… CREATE. *Motivational Music* *Music Builds* *Motivation also Builds* If you want more sewing inspiration don’t forget to hit the “Subscribe” or “Notifications” button, and if you want to find me on instagram I am @WithWendy.

  1. I have seen so many comments this year from people who are just starting sewing, or bought a machine because of watching tutorials on Youtube, or waiting to feel inspired again, and I feel you! So much of sewing is having motivation and excitement over the project at hand, so I really hoped to spread encouragement. This is way too much to pack into one video, so if there's any part you want more detail on let me know! Go forth and create!!

  2. Your videos make me want to cry (good cry tho), they give me so much inspiration and hope to get better at sewing. I'm really glad I found your channel <3

You learned me a lot since I first watched one of your videos maybe two years ago.
