Welcome to my Sewing Blog!

You are now entering a sewing blog with no babies- or kitty-pictures!
Or at least said pictures are at a bare minimum.
It's mostly about clothes, but also a few cooking recipes and other things that interest me.

My blog is free of advertisements!
And also no popups, no Flash, no animations and no background sounds.
It's just a sewing blog created by a sewer and written for other sewers looking for inspirations.

Not only will you find almost everything I've made, but I also enjoy writing tutorials and
making patterns which I gladly give away for free.
You'll also find unique tools not found anywhere else,
including pattern generators for skirts and hats.

I wish you great inspirations and useful informations!
And please leave a few comments

Threads Storing System

Now that I became a thread-pusher it's a little embarrassing that I don't have a system on my own threads. I mean the threads I'm using myself, not those I'm selling. When I see all those awesome systems other people have then I feel obligated to come up with something more presentable than what I have now.

Corset 7: Iselin

Iselin had a skirt she didn't like. Actually she likes the colour and the fabric, but not the shape. When she asked me to make something else out of it, my limited imagination suggested a corset.
