Since I was little I loved making things. Anything made with my hands always gave me a lot of joy. And it still does… Before my move to Australia, I was dabbling a little with sewing. It got my interest since I hardly found well fitting clothes that I liked. I didn’t know about indie pattern makers yet, and ended up being as frustrated with the sizing as I was just buying retail clothing. Then I became pregnant and made a lot of clothes for the little one. Looking back at those makes, I have come a long way 😅
We then moved to Australia to travel, sold my sewing machine and sewing was put on the backburner. Untill I became pregnant again. I started looking around for patterns and found heaps of indie pattern makers who have a bigger size range then the old school magazines. I finally got myself a sewing machine (with a lot of issues 😕, luckily our local shop fixed them) and started printing a lot of patterns.
I wasn’t a fan of all the printing and apparently a lot of other people weren’t either…and I jumped on the projector bandwagon straiht away without looking back. This christmas I finally got an overlocker and think I’m pretty well set up.
I like upcycling and opshopping for my fabrics mostly but have to admit that I like to buy new fabrics as well 😅
Soon we are planning to start travelling again in our caravan and all the machines are coming alongside with us. I hope I can still make a lot of pretties but we will see. Life is a bit different when you are on the road…
My intention for starting this blog is to have a bit of a keepsake of all my makes (especially with fast growing kids). And to actually see an evolution in my sewin skills 😊
