I get a certain attachment to the things that I make. Sure, they are not perfect, but we have a history. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into them. Not to mention money! I can look at the items that I made a few years ago and see how far I have come. It is fun to see my knit finishes pre-serger and my buttonholes before I owned a machine that helped with that. There is a story behind each garment.
All of that being said, we do not have a lot of closet space and there are lots of items that I have made that just don’t fit right, are out of style, or I just don’t wear. The problem is that I have a really hard time letting go of them. So they continue to hang in my closet, taking up space, and not getting worn.
So I wonder, do you guys have the same problem?
Do you hold onto the items that you make long after their normal lifecycle?
How do you convince yourself to part with the items that you no longer have a need for?
When you do part with them how do you go about it?
