Hey, I thought this blog was about sewing & fabric arts!
In 2012, a lot of my crafty energy went into wedding planning.
For some time, I diligently avoided writing about it here, since I more or less promise to be just the Nerdy Sewist on this blog, not Kristina in Other Capacities.
But I would have done so much crafty wedding DIY if I wasn’t also into sewing. Sewing empowered me to explore doing other crafty things myself.
And hope it inspires you too — or if you find these posts because you’re doing DIY for your wedding but have never sewn before, I hope you try sewing sometime!
Here are my reasons for DIY’ing parts of my wedding:
1) We had a small wedding on a small budget;
2) I wanted the wedding to feel unique and genuine in this crazy, wedding-industry obsessed culture;
3) I wanted to have that hands-on feeling, like I made or built some part of the event, not just throwing money at it.
Don’t get me wrong, I did not DIY everything. But I did personalize wherever I could.
