Dyeing, Drafting and Doubts

'It's just fabric, it's just fabric,...' this has been my mantra the past few weeks. I don't know why, but sometimes I get completely petrified of cutting into my fabric and making some mistake along the way. And the craziest thing about it is I'm not talking about very expensive fabrics here.

I don't know why and where does this self-doubt come from, but it's really starting to get on my nerves. Between having a few thousand ideas in my head all the time, I now have to fight this unexplainable fear of making a mistake.

And the funniest thing in this whole mess is that when the fear disappears and I eventually do make something, I end up making this:

I have dyed the fabric myself and made the pattern from scratch.

Oh the joys and ironies of our daily lives...


  1. Yes, I know that feeling ... it's inexplicable and irrational fear, it only takes time and not obsess, it will disappear as it appeared. Beautiful top!

  2. Maybe a Taurean thing? I have the same feeling sometimes and then think "oh, what was all the fuss about?" Great, amazing top- love the twist and the dye job.
