New Year Sewing Plans

New Year is a great time or making plans.  This year I have a couple of sewing related resolutions to share!

1. Project Sew My Style

Project Sew My Style - What is it?

This is a first for me, signing up to a sewing community collective project, but I am really looking forward to it.  The concept is simple- 12 sewing patterns have been selected, one or each month.  Everyone sews them up and shares their makes via Instagram.  Find out more here.

Not all of the projects are things I would usually be drawn to, but I’m going to give them a try.  I am looking forward to this month’s make the Sew House 7 Toaster Sweater.  Both versions look so cozy.  And I love Megan Nielson Patterns so the Virginia Leggings and Darling Ranges Dress both look like fun.

To see the rest of the pattern selections and the timeline head over to bluebird fabrics here.

2. Blogging weekly/fortnightly

Still not sure how this will work out with college and work going on in the background, but I do have a couple of things made and photographed ready to blog.  Still learning my way around WordPress though!  I do have the best of intentions and I am excited about sharing my makes with the world.  Here is a sneak peek of the next blog post to come along…

2017 is looking like a good year already!

Hello World

Well hello there! I’m Naomi and I’m looking forward to creating content for this blog. I hope that it will be a journey of sewing and discovery. I have been sewing a lot of my own clothes for about two years, and I wanted to start sharing what I had made and all that I am learning… Hence this blog. I’m not sure yet how often I will be posting, but I would like to aim for posting something new each week. That might be a new completed project, work in progress or just some style inspiration. Wish me luck!
