I thought today I’d do a little round up of some sewing blogs that I love. Just because. Also I don’t have anything to show you at the moment, but when next week’s deadline has passed I will! So, without further ado, here a few sewing-related blogs that I think are rather awesome…
Roisin, AKA Dolly Clackett, makes the most gorgeous dresses and has a pretty enviable shoe collection to go with them too. She dresses how I like to think I would if I wasn’t running around after two small children! I love the fabrics she chooses too, I think we have fairly similar tastes there; in fact the typewriter fabric I bought for my Delphine skirt was chosen after seeing Roisin post a photo of it! Roisin’s blog is funny and gives you a bit of a glimpse into her life too, it’s not all sewing, and being the nosey person I am, I quite like this!
Randomly Happy is written by Elena, and the first thing that struck me about her blog is how pretty it looks. It’s not all looks though, she’s got some great tutorials and tips to share which are helpfully broken down into how long you want to spend on a project. I definitely agree with this statement of Elena’s: “People love to make things. Because making things is awesome.” This blog is great because it doesn’t matter how confident you are with your sewing, you’ll find a project you can do. Some projects she breaks down into week by week sew-a-longs, which is great too.
Laura Strutt is the lovely lady behind Made Peachy and I don’t think there’s a craft she can’t do. Her blog isn’t just sewing, there’s all sorts on here which is why I love to read it. There’s everything to sewing to knitting, calligraphy to pom-pom making and more. It’s a daily dose of inspiration and it looks so pretty too.
I don’t really think Tilly Walnes needs much of an introduction does she?! Tilly is all about dressing handmade and so her blog has loads of useful tips, especially if you’re just starting out in sewing. Everything is easy to understand and the photos are super clear too. If you like Tilly’s style, I’d definitely recommend her book too. Another thing I love about Tilly’s blog is that she shares loads of great photos of things people have made using her patterns; it’s always nice to get a bit of extra inspiration.
What blogs do you love? Tell me about them! I’d love to know if you write a blog too, please leave me a comment!
