So I started sewing again about 2 years ago and discovered there was a whole new dimension to it with the online resources now available.
There was a whole new world of online resources – techniques, PDF patterns( I just love the instant access), indie pattern designers, and of course blogs.
Over the last 2 years I think I’ve become a blog addict. I discovered Bloglovin and started following a few bloggers, which has rapidly expanded to a long list of inspiring sewers.
And then of course I began to think, maybe I should try this too and become a more active part of the online community.
and that’s where the 2017 new year resolution comes in! Start a blog in 2017.
So having managed to work out how to create a blog( I think) I’m starting with my sewing resolutions for 2017 . Here is my #2017makenine plans which I thought would encourage me to use some of my patterns and stash of fabric in the coming months.
My first planned make
Sew House 7 Toaster sweater. I bought this PDF in December and its top of my list for January sewing. Planning to use fabric purchased in theatre Textile Centre Boxing Day sale – a mid weight textured cloque Jersey ( still available on 25% off sale) in grey. It’s a lovely weight and hopefully ideal for this sweater. More on the sweater in my next post!.
