Because everything is about personality, right???
Well, I’m making curtains for the house. There are 10 windows downstairs! Can you say – HUGE PROJECT? I’ve settled on something along these lines for the living and dining room.
Simple, unlined, very, very cheap! Which is the ultimate goal at the moment. So here goes…
Making Curtains INFJ Style
I: Being an introvert, sewing is a perfect fit for me, provided I can actually do it alone, without distraction. If there are wild monkeys coming in and out asking for juice, popcorn made on the stove, non-bunchy socks, and the special Scene- It dice, Mommy is not a happy camper.
N: I prefer not to use a pattern. I like to sew intuitively… Ha Ha Ha. Which means, I have made a lot of ugly things, but I’ve learned a lot in the process. For example, I bought an entire bolt of this unbleached utility fabric at $2/yard and then went thrifting for curtains I could take apart and add as accents. Decisions like whether to do tabs, pockets, tie tabs, hidden tabs, grommets, kind of came and went as I went along. I kind of felt my way through the process until I had my first panel made.
F: I wish I could make decisions about fabric based completely on how fabrics make me feel, but alas, $$$ is usually the bottom line here.
J: Although I know I have to make like 50 tie tabs for the entire set of curtains, and I know it would make sense to make all the tabs at one time, I can not do it. I only sew when I know I can complete something start to finish. So, I’ve been making one panel at a time. Then I can pack up the sewing stuff, tuck it all away, and wait until I have time to make another complete panel. I know this is dumb… I am uncomfortable with things in process.
So, what about you and your projects? What does your crafting, sewing, cooking, writing, water-skiing, fantasy football playing, say about who you are???
