However, I really like the idea of having a scrapbook dedicated solely to my sewing projects. Sure, I have this blog, but I'd like something a bit more tangible. As someone who is a self described packrat, I want a book that I can keep forever and ever. Something that I can hold in my hand and thumb through the pages when I'm old and gray. I love the idea of having a sewing timeline in a book that I can look upon to see how far I've come. I truly hope to sew all of my life, so it would be amazing in 30 or 40 years to look back and see all of my creations. A life story, if you will, that is told by outfits that I have sewn could be created if I was diligent about the scrapbook.
As for the logistics, I'd want to dedicate one page to each garment that is sewn. So, if I sew an outfit, that would actually get two pages in the book. Each page would contain one or two photos of the garment, a picture of the pattern envelope, and a name that I gave the garment for the blog post. Since I have a picture of everything I've sewn, I could truly start at the beginning of my sewing "career". However, a few of the items I made as soon as I started sewing have already bit the dust, so I'm unsure if I'd want to include them. For example, two shirts I made early on had no seam finishes, were put through the washing machine a few times, and then met the trash can. Would I really want to include them in my scrapbook?
What do you all think? Do you scrapbook in general? Do you keep a creative scrapbook of things you've sewn? Do I really need another money sucking hobby? Chime on in!
