Lost your sewjo? Here's 4 tips to get it back!

As sewers, we all experience moments when our sewing motivation seems to dwindle. Whether it's due to a creative block, lack of inspiration, or simply feeling burnt out, losing our sewing mojo can be frustrating. However, fear not! In this blog post, we will explore four practical tips to help you reignite your sewing inspiration and rediscover the joy of creating.


A cluttered and disorganised sewing space can contribute to a lack of motivation, take some time to declutter, tidy up, and reorganise your sewing area. A refreshed and organised space can do wonders for your sewing motivation and creates a space that is inspiring and conducive to creativity. Consider adding some personal touches like plants, artwork, or motivational quotes to uplift your sewing environment.


A creative reset, palate cleansers in sewing serve as delightful breaks from larger projects. These small, quick endeavours offer a chance to experiment, have fun, and let you indulge in the joy of sewing without the pressure of a significant project. The beauty of palate cleansers lies in their versatility and simplicity, you could make something small like a bag or cushion.


Inspiration can be found in countless places, so make it a priority to seek it out. Browse through fashion blogs, visit fabric stores, or join online sewing communities to connect with fellow sewists. Follow sewing influencers on social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, where you can discover a wealth of sewing projects, patterns, and styling ideas. Draw inspiration from different sources, such as nature, art, or cultural traditions, and incorporate those elements into your sewing projects to infuse them with renewed creativity.


Sometimes, the best way to regain your sewing motivation is to step away from your sewing machine for a while. Give yourself permission to take a break and engage in other activities that spark your creativity. Explore other hobbies, visit art exhibitions, read fashion magazines, or simply spend time in nature. Allowing your mind to rest and rejuvenate will help you approach sewing with a fresh perspective when you return especially if sewing is your hobby or outlet; it’s meant to be relaxing!

Remember, motivation can fluctuate, and it's normal to have ups and downs in your sewing journey. Be kind to yourself, embrace the process, and enjoy the creative expression that sewing brings. Implementing these tips will help to reignite your sewing motivation and rediscover the joy of creating beautiful garments.

Happy sewing!
