I'm not a hipster: I don't sew my own/my kid's clothes
While I avoid the blogs that focus solely on sewing clothes, I do follow some that have an occasional sewing post. I ignore those posts quickly as I don't care for it. I don't get the fun of sewing. A lot of the created clothes don't even look cool (because they are often in a retro style that I don't care for either).
Well, ok, I can get it at some level. I can rationally understand that it is fun to manually create something, to find a design, work on it and realise it. I can see how it brings creativity and the sense of fulfillment and additionally it enables more local trade, small scale economy which is a good thing. But since I can't even saw a button properly, it seems like an incredible hassle to me to attempt creating your own clothes. Where would I find the time and energy to search for patterns, fabrics, ...and execute the job? Why would I find that fun? Ugh, does that really saves time and money? And I'm convinced that it really wouldn't look good.
So no, I don't care for sewing at all and similarly I don't care for reading about patterns, fabrics, sawing machines. It's great and good for other people but not me.
