Sew Thinky Thursday: Bad Sewing Habits

I have been playing along with Sew Thinky Thursday day. Each week a new question is asked.


This weeks question is:
Bad sewing habits. Do you have them? Share with us, what are your worst habits when it comes to sewing?

Shh. Don't Tell any but I have a lot of bad sewing habits. 
  1. I forget to close my rotary cutter way too often. 
  2. I often just throw my scraps to the side and then maybe shove them in one of my scrap containers. 
  3. I leave piles of fabric laying on my table until it becomes such a big pile that I have to clean up before I cut anything else. I may even move it to the scrap pile just not to deal with it right now. 
  4. I drop pins all the time. I try to pick them up but often I find them when they poke me in the foot, I may curse just a bit when that happens. 
  5. My seam ripper is a good friend of mine. 
  6. I don't have a perfect quarter inch. I try but it isn't always exactly how I want it to be. 
  7. I have project ADD. I start something get distracted, try something new... oh but wait there was this...  what honey I was cleaning the kitchen.... oh yeah but I just want to finish this one thing... 
I am sure there is more, but this is good enough for now. How about you do you have any bad sewing habits?

  1. thanks for the giggle this morning -- cause I do many of those things myself. Last time i organized my scraps I probably found 20 fat qtrs and many yards of fabric because it had gotten pushed to the side for that next add project. (at least your in good company)

  2. I think mine is probably just sewing over pins all the time, I rarely take them out then curse when I run over one just the right way to break my needle. Oh and I never clean up my space until I'm done with my project...which sometimes is a while. My poor hubby is much more patiant than he should be ;)

  3. I think our bad sewing habits are identical twins seperated at birth...

  4. I forget to close my rotary cutter too. I have knocked it off the table twice that resulted in cutting the top of my shoe once and the other time cit the top of my foot quite deeply. I never told my husband. I wore socks to bed for two weeks so he wouldn't know.

  5. I love piles! It is very irritating when they fall over and I have to pick them up!

  6. Oh another pile person! That's me too! I started keeping my piles in 3gallon ziploc bags - "project bags" sound so much more professional than piles. :) Please be careful with that rotary, those are the worst sewing stories - the ones that involve bleeding all over fabric. Be safe!
    Thanks for linking up this week!
