DIY Refashions: Creativity Is Skill – Eco Fashion Sewing

DIY Refashions: Creativity Is Skill

By Mariana Kirova

​Do you think you lack creativity? Do you think: “I’m not a creative person?” When it comes to DIY refashions we often feel we have no ideas. Creativity seems to slipping out.

I used to think that too. We’re just raised to think being creative is a personality trait. You have it or you don’t, right?

​See ​how I changed my mind. Why today I think this is the most misleading thought ​you could have (and ​as a result your love for sewing and making unique one-of-a-kind clothing suffers…).

Check out my video on Why you think you are lacking creativity and how you could change that. Today.

​I'd love to hear your thoughts!

For the love of creativity and pursuing it with joy

    Thanks for this. I too had decided that “I am not a designer” but now I will give it a go. Keep up the great work. I loved your coat design.

    • Great! Definitely give it a go, Laura! And mostly, give yourself enough time to progress. Starting simple is the best, just by combining some elements you like on clothing, for example. Keep me posted!
