Last week, I talked about the time I sewed my first men’s shirt, which was one of those project that took my sewing to a whole new level. Lately, I am thinking a lot about how to make my blog posts more useful for my readers. Seeing a finished sewing project can be quite intimidating at times, especially for beginners.

Ever since I started knitting, I’ve been on the hunt for good tutorials. Basically everything I know about knitting comes from consulting the omniscience of youtube and blogs.

So I started to schedule specific days for cutting. Days where all I do is […]
Today, I just want to share a quick tip with you about something I learned earlier this month. You might be aware of the Ginger Jeans Sewalong going on over at Closet Case Files.
