Presenting the first official post of SEW HANDMADE. I hope you found encouragement to visit me through my recently retired site, So Little Time. I started that blog three years ago with a vague idea about what I wanted to write about, but I knew it was to be a blog about creating. About a year ago I finally made the commitment to solely document my sewing pursuits. That is about the same time the blog name started to wear on me. So Little Time just didn't seem to be appropriate. The name didn't fit any more. The biggest problem being SEWING TAKES TIME! So after a period of indecision, I decided it was time for a new blog name and with that a new blog address.
At the start of my blogging experience, I was truly reluctant to post any of my sewing creations; however, as my blog migrating towards sewing, I become a little more at ease about saying, "yes, I made this" and "thank you" when someone compliments me on my handmade clothes. While, I am NOT into the latest fashion or claim to know anything about fashion, my goal is to create clothing that is reflective of me and, of course, uniquely beautiful.
Handmade clothes have always been part of my wardrobe, though in my teenage years I strayed away from the notion---as teenagers tend to ridicule others for wearing homemade things. These days, I wear my handmade clothes more and more often; and the more I wear my creations, the better my skills are becoming. My wish is to encourage everyone to try sewing and making handmade items. From my own experience, it only takes practice, patients, will, and time. Welcome, and please feel free to comment, email, or just browse.
