8 Sewing Blogs to Read

I'm so fortunate to be having a very slow, relaxing January. Things are going to have to change pretty quickly, pretty soon (my first market for the year will be March 12 & 13) but in the meantime I have lots of time to read, dream and scheme! I thought I'd share with you some of the sewing blogs I like to read or go to when I'm looking for inspiration. All of these have lots of great sewing tutorials too so a great place to turn for inspiration when the sewing bug bites. In no particular order, here are some of my favourites...

Crazy Little Projects

Crazy Little ProjectsThis colourful and inspiring blog is not just about sewing, but has a heavy emphasis on it, including learn-to-sew posts and resources such as 25 Things to Sew in Under 30 Minutes.

So Sew Easy

Sew So EasyWith heaps of free resources - patterns, tutorials - this is one to keep coming back to. From Sewing a Buttonhole with the Buttonhole Foot to How to Sew a Corset in a Day (!), you'll find it here. So Sew Easy was started by Deby and follows her journey learning to sew but has moved well beyond that now too.
