Before jumping right in with a sewing post I wanted to start with a short Intro.
I have a problem….Spending money on clothes only for them to just sit in my wardrobe and never see the light of day.
I have another problem….Buying clothes that don’t fit either; because they were on sale or from a charity shop and I couldn’t resist or I was on a diet and they were sizes I would eventually fit into.
WELL, NO MORE.
After periodically doing big clear outs of all the clothes I would never wear or would never fit. It was a strangely emotional goodbye but I was becoming known as being a hoarder and having more clothes then anyone should ever have.
Enter sewing. I firstly became enthralled by the idea of sewing to refashion all the clothes I couldn’t say goodbye to or would actually wear if not for some slight fit issues.
Then BAM endless hours on the internet showed me the immense sewing community, indie pattern designers and the big pattern designers. I FELL IN LOVE. I want to create rather then endlessly consuming and seeing all these fantastic ladies doing that made me incredibly excited.
I am very new to sewing but I have huge aspirations for a perfect, small and well thought out wardrobe of handmade/refashioned clothes.
This blog is so I can finally stop lurking on other peoples blogs! and start commenting and enjoy the sewing community. I reaallllly reaaaalllllly want to be part of the club!!!
Soooo that’s about it. Can’t wait to start showing my projects, if you’re reading this thanks for visiting 🙂

sewing machine accessories, books, sewing patterns…..think I forgot shopping habits can transfer!! I’ve put a ban on myself because I think I could spend twice as much with this hobby than shopping!!!! :'( hahaha thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
I love this post, my guilt over my asos addiction was a major reason why I started sewing! I warn you though: fabric buying becomes just as much of a compulsion! as a fellow beginner, I shall look forward to following your progress 😊
