At the end of 2019, my love for sewing returned. In the past few years I have sewn professionally for various occupations and reasons. However, the pressure this brings with it almost killed my love for sewing for myself. This year I have many sewing plans, I intend to sew slowly and fall in love with my sewing machine all over again!
I intend to sew slowly and fall in love with my sewing machines all over again!
I will blame Instagram for this purchase, I was ‘influenced’ by a fellow sewist who was sharing her favourites from a batch of newly released patterns. This one caught my eye…love the sleeves.
Sewing inspiration Little Women The Film by Greta Gerwig
There can only be one thing that will inspire us home sewists this year. Little Women the new film by Greta Gerwig. Prairie dresses and beautiful embroidered blouses with puffed sleeves have captured my imagination since seeing the film on Boxing Day. If you haven’t seen it yet and you like a good costume period drama, you must go and see it!
Prairie style dresses will be everywhere this year!
Will you be playing ‘Little House on the Prairie” this year or will you be styling it the Little Women way?
Modern Wooden Sewing Tools
I also love wooden sewing tools, I have a lot of vintage ones, some over 70 years old! Wooden handled tools are a joy to use and hold. I buy new ones from Grace at Beyond Measure. Compared to the plastic ones we are used to for example just think of all the stitch unpickers you have used over the years. My new oak wooden stitch unpicker, in the pic below will last forever, I will just buy replacement blades that cost £2.50. Talk about sustainable!
I also bought my wooden pin cushion from Grace too!
