I thought I’d share with you some of the sewing blogs I like to read or go to when I’m looking for inspiration. All of these have lots of great sewing tutorials too so a great place to turn for inspiration when the sewing bug bites. In no particular order, here are some of my favourites…
Some Favourite Sewing Blogs to Read
Crazy Little Projects
So Sew Easy
With heaps of free resources – patterns, tutorials – So Sew Easy is one place to keep coming back to. From Sewing a Buttonhole with the Buttonhole Foot to How to Sew a Corset in a Day (!), you’ll find it here. So Sew Easy was started by Deby and follows her journey learning to sew but has moved well beyond that now too.
Melissa (Melly) designs and sells clothing patterns but she has a huge range of free patterns and tutorials on her blog, Melly Sews. She has something for everyone, from beginner to advanced, and clothing patterns for kids and adults. Have a look at her tutorial on How to Draft and Sew a Skirt or the Poinsettia T-Shirt Refashion.
Curvy Sewing Collective
The Curvy Sewing Collective contains loads of resources for making clothes for the fuller figure. It has lots of pattern reviews, resources such as the Guide to Pattern Cup Sizes, and inspiration from the CSC community.
I discovered Jenny and Cashmerette after borrowing her fabulous book Ahead of the Curve: Learn to Fit and Sew Amazing Clothes for your Curves from my library. Along with sewing patterns for curvy bodies, Cashmerette has a blog with sew-alongs.
Tilly and The Buttons
Tilly and the Buttons is bright and clear and has some great tips to accompany the patterns she sells. With Five Ways to Kick-Start your Sewing Mojo and Making the Time to Sew, it might be just the thing you need to make this your year of making!
Stitch and Sew
Stitch and Sew not only has some great sewing tutorials but also buying guides for sewing machines. Maria’s Guide to Sewing for Beginners is a great place to go if you are looking to get started with sewing.
And finally, a fabulous resource for sewing things for your home. With loads of projects (plus techniques tutorials), if you need floor cushions or mesh laundry bags, you’ll find something to fit the bill on Sew4Home.
