Hi everyone, this is so exciting!
I will be sharing with you my joy of sewing and creating my own clothes. There will probably be some moments of despair as well. There is nothing I love more than dreaming up some wonderful creation and then pairing together the perfect pattern with the perfect fabric.
I have been following some amazing blogs now for a while, and I can't wait to be part of your wonderful community. It seems to me, that the people who blog about sewing, or DIY:ing, are a bunch of truly warm hearted and creative people.
My mom taught me how to sew and knit when I was a child. It kind of runs in the family. I have truly had a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine. Fortunately, over the years, the love part has grown bigger and bigger. A few years ago I surprised myself and went to school to become a professional seamstress. In 2013 I started my own sewing business and am now sewing part-time for customers.
I was a bit worried that sewing professionally might kill all the joy of it, but quite the opposite. I now sew more in my spare time than ever before. It probably has something to do with getting faster over time and learning more and more. Not to mention that it is easier to begin a project when you already have all your sewing stuff ready and on hold - instead of having to dig through your closet every time just to get your sewing machine out. Oh the joy of a small cramped apartment.
This is a bit intimidating -not the sewing part- but the blogging part. Let's see how I'll manage, I can't wait to get started!
