New Website, What?!

So, it turns out this little adventure is something I REALLY enjoy.  Who knew?  I’ve never been a fan of writing or having people read my writing.  But, this whole documenting how I feel when I’m sewing stuff up, what the pattern is like, what fabric I’m using, getting other people’s opinions on my stuff, thing…is fun?  I see why there are so many different sewing blogs and they are all “the same” but they are just so unique.  Everyone has a different perspective on the same type of stuff.  Now I’m reading more blogs (Hey!  Y’all are awesome!), which just inspires me to write more.  There is an ever-growing list of stuff to write and not enough time in the world!

But this revelation, plus an amazing friend of mine jumping into web hosting (I have no idea if that is the correct verbiage.  Basically he is an awesome coding genius and if you need a website guy, shoot me an email!), lead me to dive into a more personalized web experience.  My web address has changed (slightly) and I have more control over all the little fiddly bits on my pages.  I leave this really vague because…well, I have no idea what I’m doing!  But I’m loving learning and making mistakes as we go.

I’m really hoping the transition is smooth (on my end, I’m not worried about my friend, he has been so amazing).  There are a lot of new menus for me to mess up!!  But my followers definitely don’t have to do anything at all!!  You’ll still get an email when I post so you can read these rambling thoughts and see pictures of pretty, pretty fabrics.

 

Back to that list though…I really want to start documenting more and more of my sews.  Right now, I’m only writing maybe 8%.  I don’t want to bombard readers with test after test, or hey, I sewed up the same old work pants, but, I do want to be able to look back and remember why I’m sewing.  What I have failed at.  Where are the successes.  Do I have any skills, tips, techniques, etc, I can share with other sewists who might be struggling (we all struggle sometimes!)?  So, obviously, I have my list.  But, is there anything on your list that you’d like to read?  Do you love reading about pattern tests?  Are you interested in what random stuff I sew each month?  How I prioritize projects?  Time management techniques?  Are there any things you’re scared to try that you’d like to see some encouragement to tackle?  Comment here, send me an email, message me on social media.  I’m writing this for me, but if I can help anyone else with something, hell yes!!

Thanks for reading. <3

PS – I included some random photos of projects I’ve worked on.  Some you’ve seen, some you haven’t.  Mostly from this year, but the little makeup bag is from…last year I think.  (See, this is why I need to write down more projects!)  I hope you enjoy the ridiculousness and fun.

  1. Hi Stephanie! I love reading anything you write! The pattern tests have been amazing, you’ve tempted me to get quite a few patterns tho I have only actually purchased one, and still haven’t made it 🙁 I’d love to get your thoughts on pattern storage, fabric storage, time management, and really anything. I don’t mind seeing posts of just regular every day sewing, sometimes its basics that get us through. What tools do you love and why? Do you like your machine, why and what would you change about it? I’m starting to look for an upgrade and getting opinions on machines 🙂 See how its all abut me? 😛

    1. I love that it is all about you!! Thank you so much for letting me know what you’re interested in! Nothing makes me happier than helping someone else with their love of sewing. <3

  2. First – LOVE the web site! It’s well organized and lovely. Second – how do I get one of the bags you posted a pic of with your latest post? I love it and it looks the perfect size for my makeup bag! The key chains look super cute!!!

    1. Pretty sure one or two of those bags have been on your list for a while. Clearly I need to carve out some time for basics sewing. 😉

  3. I love hearing about your makes; what you liked, if it was easy, what you thought of the pattern and fit. I am fairly new to garment sewing and love reading other peoples’ opinions and thoughts. Love the new look and thanks for the time you put in.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read and reply! The support in our sewing community blows my mind!! Everyone is so kind and happy to help one another out. There is nothing more valuable than the shared knowledge we bring! I hope you’re loving garment sewing as much as I am. <3
