Hello everyone!!! I appreciate you all being here each & every day. I truly value you being here with me & for understanding that with our impending move – life here is chaos. I could really use the days to be twice as long. I know that things on this little blog are not quite what you are used to & once life calms down- I’m sure I will be back to delivering that to you all again. But having said that, I also love to bring you all little bits of “other than food” creativity even when I’m in the kitchen all the time. Because I love to create just about everything- food, DIY & crafts too. All of that is taking a bit of a back seat to the move right now. So- today the FABULOUS Rachel from Sew Happily is here to share with you How to Sew~ Tips for Getting Started. Please give her a nice warm Kleinworth & Co. welcome.
Hey yall! I’m Rachel from Sew Happily – where I blog about my handmade life, especially modern (ish) quilting, womens garment sewing, and girls garment sewing! I’d love to see yall stop by, grab a cup of coffee and visit for a while. You can also find me on Instagram!
One conversation that I find myself having frequently with people goes a little something like this:
Friend: Rachel, I want to start sewing.
Me: YAY!!! (as I start bouncing up and down)
Friend: I have no idea how and where to start. Do you have any advice?
Yall – talk about a loaded question. I could talk about sewing for days and days and days.
So to help all yall who are aspiring sewists out there, I’ve put together my top 5 resources for you if you’re starting this journey into the sewing world! There’s a couple ‘categories’ that I’ve used to break things down for you: supplies, basic how to tutorials, great beginning project tutorials, fabric sources, and some blogs that I find to be very helpful. By all means, is there more out there? Absolutely! But – can you make it with just these? For the most part, yest! So, check it out and get to sewing! 🙂
Sewing Machines (I sew on a Babylock A Line Elizabeth), fabric only scissors, rotary cutting mat (I prefer Olfa), patterns, and a sewing gauge.
p.s. if you’re more interested in learning how to quilt, check out this great series by Diary of a Quilter!
Thanks again, Gina, for having me today! Looking forward to being back next month!
This is great for so many just getting started!!! Thank you Rachel!!!!
