In this post, I’m sharing Top 6 Clutch/Purse Patterns That Will Turn Heads
“You don’t have to make it perfect, you just have to get it done.”
Two weeks ago I enrolled in this online course and our mantra there is “you don’t have to make it perfect, you just have to get it done.” Coincidentally, last week I received an email from this another blogging guru where she shed some lights on the same topic, progression is WAY better than perfection.
So today I’m all about “you don’t have to make it perfect, you just have to get it done” and I was thinking how perfectly this fits when we’re sewing bags.
A lot of time when I’m sewing bags and somehow end up making ONE tiny mistake where the top-stitch turns out a bit crooked I get SO frustrated trying to achieve perfection that sometimes I just feel like GIVING UP and tossing the bag in the UFO (un-finished objects) corner. Even if I plan to finish the bag, the whole time I’m sulking and cursing myself for not getting it PERFECT.
Can you relate to this? I’m sure you can.
This is one of our biggest problems as bag makers. But just imagine how much we would achieve by just cutting ourselves some slacks, by sticking to the mantra of “progression is better than perfection”.
Maybe the first bag we make would be full of mistakes, but what’s important is finishing the bag and noting down all the places where we messed up so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes again.
The beauty lies in making it to the end and reflecting on the mistakes so that we can improve on them later instead of giving up altogether.
Leo Tolstoy once wrote, “If you look for perfection, you’ll never be content.”
Which is extremely true. When I’m running after perfection, ripping off the seam and sewing, again and again, I always end up frustrated and somehow no matter what that top stitch does not turn out perfect. Instead, it turns me into an angry monster wanting to throw my machine and the bag right out the window.
So from today onward, I promise myself to focus on progression rather than perfection. Do you promise to do the same?
Here’s a FREE poster that you can download and stick near your sewing area to always remind yourself to focus on progression rather than perfection.
