The great sewing blog roundup!

pins

Ok guys, I feel that my links have become embarrassingly outdated. A long while back, I just threw up some of my favorite links and haven’t had a chance to revise them or seek out new ones.

I think it’s important that we get to know our community of fellow sewers, so I’m putting a call out! I’d love it if you could comment and tell me a little about your sewing or crating related blog. Please write in your comments:

  1. Your name (first name is fine, or if you prefer some other nickname or handle, that’s a-ok)
  2. The name of your blog
  3. The link to your blog
  4. A short (140 characters or less) description of your blog

Your blog should have something to do with sewing or making, even if that’s not the primary focus. Please no links to non-blogs (etsy stores, etc).

I’m going to go through all the links you give me and add them to my blogroll, and I’m also planning to add a rotating “featured reader blog” spot that will have a link and the description of your blog.

To keep this manageable, I will keep this open for one week, so you have until Wednesday, March 10, then I will close comments. Thank you all, I can’t wait to check out your links!

My blog, Charles & Poppy, is a mish-mash of creativity. I come from a long line of very talented sewers and crafters, and after receiving a sewing machine for my 23rd Birthday nearly two years ago, I’ve returned the the craft and have fallen deeply in love with it. I love any and all forms of creativity, and I love being inspired by other people. Come visit!

On , karen ball said: | didyoumakethat.wordpress.com

I’m Karen, and my brand new blog – http://didyoumakethat.wordpress.com/ – is only four entries old! The blog follows the story of my sewing and knitting – two crafts that balance my other life as a writer and editor of children’s books. I’m hoping the blog will give me faith as I take terrified steps towards making the McCalls 5815 jacket and that readers will enjoy occasional glimpses of London and the fabric heaven that is Walthamstow market. Thank you!

On , M said: | thelazymilliner.blogspot.com

Okedokey. I’m Mary Beth; my blog is http://www.thelazymilliner.blogspot.com. It’s about sewing, knitting, crocheting, procrastinating, and oh yes, hats!

On , Karin said: | themrs.eu

How exciting! My blog http://www.themrs.eu started out as a crafty blog, focussed mostly on sewing, but later life in general made an appearance also, especially those little moments in every day that make you stop for a moment and realise how wonderful it all is. With three little ones it can be challenging to find as much time for sewing as I would love to have, but, in the minutes that I do manage to fit in, I love to sew for those little ones I mentioned before, for my love and for myself.

On , Susannah said: | cargocultcraft.com

So glad you asked! Cargo Cult Craft is where I post about sewing, 1940s fashion history, the challenges of dressing well in the age of fast fashion and my attempt to live for one year on the UK wartime clothing ration from 1941.

Hope to see you there!

On , Bea said: | horrormaedchen.blogspot.com

Hi I’m Bea and my blog is http://www.horrormaedchen.blogspot.com . I blog about my sewing and crochet and will add knitting as well, if I ever get anything else finished but a scarf . I also blog about any inspiration I find and life in general.

On , AnaJan said:

Hmm… I guess I’ll have to start writing a sewing related blog, just to be able to enter the sewing community. I’m a passionate fellow seamstress, and I love reading other people’s blogs on the subject, so I follow a lot of them, but I don’t keep my own blog. Does being an active member of BurdaStyle count at all? If so, browse for me over there under AnaJan.

On , Sarai said: | colettepatterns.com

I definitely don’t think you need a blog to be part of the sewing community! But hopefully this will help you find some cool blogs to read as well.

On , AnaJan said:

I sure did find some really inspiring blogs :).

On , Deedrie said: | mybricole.com

mybricole at home is a little record my baking, stitching, and picture taking. It tracks all the fun things I’m doing when I really should be doing laundry.

grr my link didn’t work – you can find me at http://www.mybricole.com
Like I said, mybricole at home is a little record my baking, stitching, and picture taking. It tracks all the fun things I’m doing when I really should be doing laundry.
And sometimes I have trouble with computers.

On , Ms.Cleaver said: | mscleaverchronicles.wordpress.com

I’m Leah aka Ms. Cleaver, and I blog at http://mscleaverchronicles.wordpress.com. I knit, sew, embroider, bake, and share my adventures in and around Southern Maine. I’m currently teaching myself pattern drafting – which has brought some exciting new challenges to the table!

On , Bissy said: | sewsterhood.wordpress.com

Hi! My name’s Bissy, and my new blog Sewsterhood (http://sewsterhood.wordpress.com) is a place for sewing and story. I love how sewing isn’t just messing about with needle and thread but rather a series of ongoing cozy experiments in crafting love. On my blog, that’s what I seek to explore as I post about each new project.

On , Diane said: | knitknitwhat.blogspot.com

I’m Diane and my blog can be found at http://www.knitknitwhat.blogspot.com. I mostly knit so that has been the focus of my blog since its inception. But I’ve started to use the sewing machine I got for my birthday last year and hope to post more about my sewing adventures in the future.

On , sarah said: | colorkitten.com

I feel a little like I’m at a 12-step meeting for sewists! I’m Sarah, my blog is Color Kitten @ http://www.colorkitten.com, where I mostly blog about sewing and cooking – more cooking than I’d like, but I cook every day of the year and don’t get to sew nearly as much! For the last few years I’ve sewn almost 100% for my daughter, now that she’s five and doesn’t grow out of everything quite so fast I’ve finally gotten back to sewing for myself. (And please, avoid the tuna fish wiggle recipe sitting at the top of the blog right now! It’s part of a project, I had to make it!)

On , Andrea said: | newvintage.wordpress.com

I’m Andrea and my blog, http://newvintage.wordpress.com/, is about sewing with vintage patterns for the plus sized gal.

On , Nancy said: | coldspringsstudio.blogspot.com

Hi! My name is Nancy, and my blog is “Waiter Waiter Percolator” (http://coldspringsstudio.blogspot.com/). I write mostly about sewing, especially vintage sewing and contemporary “refashioning”. I also write about vintage and retro music, art, graphics, social history, fashion, interior design, housewares… you get the idea. I make jewelry, and co-own a studio pottery with my husband. One of the themes of my blog is “Make Do and Mend.” I try to follow the practices of my grandparents during the Depression and the War, by making the most of the materials I have at hand. Our grandparents were “green” before it became “fashionable”!

Thanks for this opportunity. I’m always looking for fun new blogs, and you’re doing the work of collecting them for me!

On , renee said: | automaticsweetheart.blogspot.com

I’m Renee and I write a blog called automaticsweetheart (http://automaticsweetheart.blogspot.com). I write about designing and sewing handbags (and sometimes garments), learning textile design, embellishment and trim inspiration, and in the near future, I’ll hopefully begin have some simple pattern drafting tutorials (fingers crossed on this one. Sometimes I don’t know where my time goes!).

On , Katie said: | katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com

Hi! I’m Katie (kid_md is my handle). My blog is Kadiddlehopper (http://katiekadiddlehopper.blogspot.com). I sew mainly clothing, occasionally bags and totes and have dabbled in other accessories.

I’m also a momma of two with one on the way so I also talk about life as a momma :) This is such a great idea as I am always looking for new bloggies too!!

On , Nicole said: | biketopus.blogspot.com

I’m Nicole, and I have a “hobbies” blog called Biketopus: http://biketopus.blogspot.com/ I blog about other things like biking, cooking, and aquariums in addition to sewing, but a lot of the content is sewing related (a sign that sewing is taking over all of my free time lately!). A big part of the blog for me is trying to document works in progress so that I can learn from my sewing/crafting experiences and not be tempted to just abandon projects and hide them away in the unfinished bag of shame.

On , Natalie said: | makeandmingle.wordpress.com

Hi! My name is Natalie and my blog (http://makenandmingle.wordpress.com) is for our store, Make & Mingle in Fairfield, CT. I run it with my sister and another friend. We just opened in January and are working on building up a community of sewers with our classes and workshops. So far, our store attracts a lot of beginners, and we are excited that the interest is out there. I’d love to carry Collette patterns, just have to find some skilled customers! :) The blog is a lifestyle blog with a focus on a love of fabric…

On , The Cupcake Goddess said: | thecupcakegoddess.com

I would love to be added. My name is Sunni, but I’m also known as The Cupcake Goddess. It’s just a name. I don’t eat cupcakes or even make them all the time. I’m big into sewing and fabric and sewing and fashion and well, sewing. I try to mix it up by sharing what I love about sewing, sewing advice, sewing inspiration and the like. Catch me at: http://www.thecupcakegoddess.com.
Thanks Sarai!

I write daily during the week about all things domestic, including cooking, sewing, knitting, money, marriage, fashion, running a business from home, and more.

I love the idea of a blog roundup – thanks for putting it together!

On , Silje said: | littlebirdcrafts.blogspot.com

Hi, I’m Silje, from http://littlebirdcrafts.blogspot.com/, my blog is as much about my every day life, as it is sewing, knitting, painting, scrapbooking, soap making, and more.

Thanks for putting the call-out for blogs! I’m always looking for new ones to read as well.

On , Donna said: | snowrouteranch.blogspot.com

My name is Donna. My blog site is http://snowrouteranch.blogspot.com/

I do lots of things on my blog besides report on my sewing, although I do that too. I like to read and tell you what I like sometimes. I like to cook and talk about that sometimes. I live way, way up in the mountains of Colorado, so there are times when I blog about the wildlife and nature up here and not being able to garden much at this altitude. But, most of all I like to sew and play with fabric and patterns. I am beginning to want to draft my own patterns. I have never thought of myself as creative…..guess I was always working too hard to let that side of my brain see the sunlight. Come visit me on my blog. I have lots of fun there!

On , Amy P. said:

I don’t have a blog, but I am so excited to learn about all of your blogs! Maybe it will inspire me to start my own at some point. Thanks for sharing!

Hope you like it and thanks! :-D

I’m a huge fan of your patterns. I started sewing regularly back in Sept 2009 as a way of taking my mind off work.

I think there’s a real connection between learning how to make what we eat and wear, and developing a sense of home. The blog is Localizing – do stop by and check it out.

Hi, I”m Becca and you can find me at http://knittymama.com where I knit, spin and sew. Most of the sewing I do is for my boys but I try do a little for myself too. I also write about motherhood and general creativity, with a little cooking and gardening as well!

On , Rachel said: | thestylesocial.blogspot.com

Hi there! Rachel from The Style Social here. I started my blog originally to speak about personal style and trends, but it has morphed into something more of a meditation on creating and developing a lifestyle through sewing and making. I’m a self-taught (and still learning!) designer, and you’ll see my progress and obstacles along the way.

Hello! I love the look of your patterns but haven’t yet sewn one up… just quietly stalking finished objects on Patternreview and in blogs for the meantime.
My blog is at featherandfan.wordpress.com–lots of knitting and a bit of sewing, spinning, miscellaneous blathering.

Hi, I’m Christina and my little crafty blog is ‘A Little Bird Told Me’ – http://alittlebirdtoldme-craft.blogspot.com/.

Although my mother was a seamstress as I grew up and she taught me how to sew, knit and crochet, it wasn’t until I pregnant with my son and wanted him to have handmade toys that I rediscovered my love of craft. My blog follows my creative life, be it mothering, crocheting or collecting.

Mikhaela Reid here–I’ve been blogging as a political cartoonist since 2001, but JUST started a dedicated sewing/style blog called “Polka Dot OverLoad” (http://polkadotoverload.blogspot.com/) featuring pattern reviews, sewing projects in progress, style inspiration, both vintage and modern, and cartoons on style and body image.

Here’s how I described myself on the site: “Cartoonist and graphic designer with delusions of making as many of my own clothes as possible and an irrational attraction to bright colors, bold prints and sewing projects far out of my skill set.”

Hi there! My name is Carolyn
My blog is: Rockin’ the Rococo
http://brocadegoddess.wordpress.com/

I’m not entirely sure how well it fits in, it’s sort of a costume blog. It documents a reproduction project I did last year in conjunction with my MA in dress history. I reproduced 6 ensembles of a middle class englishwoman’s wardrobe c. 1750-1770 all by hand (as in no machine) and while wearing a corset!

Fran Alison
Miss Alison Regrets
http://www.missalisonregrets.wordpress.com

With her sharp wit (and tongue firmly in cheek) Miss Alison Regrets is the evil feminist twin of the otherwise demure & exceedingly polite Fran Alison. Miss Alison Regrets is obsessed with all things vintage, Viggo Mortensen, making things, thinking about making things, buying things for making things and sharing the crafty love (which means other people’s blogs). Miss Alison Regrets has excellent taste in books, music and fabric, and is not to be trifled with. (nor taken terribly seriously)

Hi, this is Zoe (AKA Zozowahine). My blog is ‘So, Zo’ at :http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.com/

I document my sewing exploits and write about my thoughts on handmade culture, alternative consumption and creative inspiration. I have also started a weekly International Fabric Swap, and Stash Bustin’ challenge. Presently I am doing a self-imposed challenge called me-Made-March and document everyday of it on my blog. Thanks Sarai! x

On , Hanna said: | evergreenknits.blogspot.com

Hello there! My name is Hanna. My blog is “ever green knits” (http://evergreenknits.blogspot.com).

It’s a knitting blog, with kind of a focus on nature-inspired projects and earth-friendly yarns. I just started sewing, so I expect that to start creeping in soon ….

On , Christina said: | jchristinahuh.blogspot.com

Oh I’m so stoked for this! My name’s Christina and my blog is http://jchristinahuh.blogspot.com/ (so much for protecting my identity :P).

Unemployment has left me a lot of time, so I’ve been doing what I wish I were doing during school and internships: making. I document my wins (citrus truffles!) and failures (soon to come on the dreaded curtains). And even though I concluded that my journalism degree is worthless, I’m still a huge fan of good writing and radio, so I often share what I’ve read and listened to.

Hello. My name is Amy and my blog (www.helenethelstudiobfflogspot.com) is only a few posts old. It will chronicle my adventures and misadventures into sewing .

prepare : )

Hey all! Im Anita and my co-blogger is Kelly. We recently started a craft blog called Rhinestone Beagle. We just started a monthly craft day at my house and the blog highlights those fun days plus other stuff we make and find along the way. We call it adventures in dog led crafting because our dogs are really the ones running the show.

On , Cheryl Peters said: | pachersblog.blogspot.com

Hi my name is Cheryl and I am new to blogging also, but got brave and started one mainly for my family, so they could hear of my past and future. Have some of my sewing on there, as I now have a small sewing room in my new home we are building in the mts. in eastern Washington. I love sewing, quilting, embroidery, crafts. I just put seashells all around our big mirror, that went into my upstairs bath, as I am doing a nautical type theme. Will put those picts. in soon. Am working on three quilts right now. Had to put my two to the side for the one I am doing for my son and his wife.

On , Cheryl K. said: | paradisodesigns.com

Well Hello. My name is Cheryl K., and my blog is called Paradiso Designs by Cheryl Kuczek, http://paradisodesigns.blogspot.com.
My blog is all about sewing, and I have one special blog post a week devoted to one of my students called “Sewist of the Week” I like to show what my students are doing, especially my kids!
I have had this blog for a while, but I have really geared up to do more with my blog for the sewist that buy and use my patterns (I have my own line). I love giving ideals and tutorials that can make sewing more fun. I love being in this industry.
I think Colette Patterns are really cool, and I have heard so many good things about your patterns.
And this idea here is really such a great out reach to see what else it out there too. I am learning all the time about new things in sewing, and this is a perfect way to do that! Thank-you!

On , Rachel said: | designrefinebemine.blogspot.com

What a great idea. Honestly this is going to be an amazing source for me and probably so many others.

I blog over at Be. Mine …url is…designrefinebemine.blogspot.com.

I write about fashion, include helpful sewing ideas, tutorials and links. I make my own clothes. I share how I succeed and fail in the process in order to help others learn from my mistakes. I adore vintage details and recreating RTW looks from now and the 1970′s.

I am also a sewing addicts. Love reading about sewing and learning from others who sew. I’d be nowhere without sewing blogs and that’s part of the reason I blog, that and when you love something you could talk forever about it.
