Homemade or Handmade… Really?

Why do people feel the need to label how something was sewn together? I have created fabric items, starting when I was 7, and always considered them “custom made!”.  “Custom Made” means made special for a specific purpose with specific requirements.   Yes, I have been well paid to create garments for people, and I dare say they don’t say simply “homemade” or “handmade” if asked where they got it!  When you have poured your heart and soul into a creation, lift up your definition of what you created!  Remember, if asked, “did you made it?” you can always say, it was “custom made” just for me… add a wink to the end of that statement if you want.




Happy “Custom Sewing”,
