21 Things I Like To Sew

Lately I’ve been asked a lot about what the 21 in patchwork21 means.  The patchwork part makes a bit more sense – it’s a sewing term, and it’s particularly fitting for my sewing because I do so many different things.  My sewing is genuinely a patchwork in itself.  But the 21 makes a little less sense.  Hence the questions.

The name patchwork21 didn’t really have an exciting origin.  Years ago I wanted a name for my fledgling sewing business; to me patchwork21 fit and made sense.  I like the name, big reason behind it or not.  So it’s stuck.  But as the question has come more often I decided to give the name more meaning with a list of 21 things I like to sew.  It really wasn’t hard; it took me all of about 5 minutes.  🙂  And since I made it I’ve realized a few things I’ve left off, but with my name being patchwork21 I can’t have a list of 25 things I like to sew!

So here’s the list.  Enjoy!
