I have not been sewing for very long. Even though I would pick out dress patterns and fabrics for my mum to sew for me, I didn't take an interest in sewing until I had my boys.
Looking at the projects I take on now, you would never guess where my love of all things sewing originated! I came up with an idea to sew up some soft toys to act out stories with my two boys. While doing some google searching, I stumbled upon the blog While She Naps, and her series on Soft Toy Design.
One benefit of my brief softie stint was that I was made aware that sewing blogs existed! Some google searching lead me to the blog Make It & Love It. I had a go at making a Boys Vest, but that project ended with a seam ripping accident and went in the bin. Then I had a go at making a Dolman Top for myself... The tutorial made it look so easy.
I discovered Dana and Rae's wonderful series, Celebrate The Boy! And the rest was history...
