There are two schools of thought as to which is better online stuff or non-online stuff for busting boredom.
I spend enough time on the computer during the day that non-computer stuff is best for unboring me. I've spoken of reading which is my number one favourite activity both on and off the computer. I've also spoken about scavenger hunts and other active activities which while it's not my least favourite way to spend time, it is near the top of the list.
Today I'm going to go middle of the road so to speak. You all know that Making stuff is a favourite past time of mine. But there are so many ways of making things from recycling/upcycling to full-on stuff like doll making. One of the ways I kill my boredom is by sewing and embroidery.
I started out sewing everything by hand and still do for a lot of the time but as I have progressed to a more difficult project involving multiple small pieces I have found a sewing machine invaluable.
I know some of you figure your not very creative or good at making things but making things can be very easy if you have instructions to follow. There are a lot of how to web-sites out there with good instructions. They are sometimes geared to children but you know what making things is kids play and can be yours too.
I am trying to remember what my first sewing project was but I think I actually started sewing so I could fix torn seams so my clothes would last a little longer. I know I have made simple barbie dresses for my daughter and a pillowcase or two. These are both really easy things to do because all you need is a piece of fabric cut into a rectangle. For the barbie dress, you sew two sides together and it's done. The pillowcase is another rectangle that you fold in half and sew the sides together leaving one end open and it's done. Easy peasy!
