Wellness Tool #29: Sewing & Clothing Design

I am not a sewing expert but sometimes, I concentrate on laying out a pattern, figuring out how I want the dress to look and what I can do to make it unique, and then I begin to sew. It is fun to work with colors and textures. I feel happy when I make something I love! Sewing is one of my wellness tools!
