Mushiyaki Sews, as the name suggests, is mostly driven by sewing. Recently though, I’ve felt the desire to explore other creative mediums.
Sometimes you just need to switch your focus. I was in a bit of a sewing slump. Feeling uninspired and unmotivated to sew, I decided to change things up. I’ve just started working on some mini canvases as an additional product for the upcoming Maiden Markets My Little Market in September. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process and have found it incredibly calming to paint. There’s something about repetitive brush stokes that slows the mind and allows a sense of peace. I’ve dabbled in painting previously but hadn’t found the time recently. If you’d like to see my progress so far, check out the Mushiyaki Sews Instagram Account.
I found that through switching mediums and focusing on something different, I was actually inspired to come up with some new products for my sewing as well. Winning!
