Adventures With Linen: Waste and Want

I never feel “Waste not; want not” so keenly as when sewing with thread that I spun. When I sew with store-bought thread, I waste it all over the place. It’s cheap.

My linen thread has a cheap price tag, too. It comes with the fabric. But it costs time.

So I don’t waste an inch, because if I did I might be an inch short later and have to spin some more.

Handicrafts like this are humbling projects and give me great respect for my ancestors.

Here’s the tunic–only two more hems and the trimmings left!
