What does utility sewing mean to you? It's a term I use for all the unexciting sewing tasks in my life. It includes obvious things like repairs but it also includes things like making shopping bags.
I have pondered previously if I would enjoy making things so much if it were more of a necessity. Things I define as utility sewing I do because it makes economic sense to use what skills I have to repair clothing or make useful everyday objects, I don't do it because I particularly enjoy it. Or is it a no-no to say any sewing is boring! I guess I can't just make pretty dresses when my son has holes in his socks! Tempting though..... :-)
