Find Your Inner Seamstress

Those of you who have been here awhile know that I'm kinda on a crusade to persuade people to embrace their inner seamstress, throw caution to the wind, & open themselves up to a whole new world of limitless possibilities in the realms of fashion, DIY, and d├ęcor via that beautiful little piece of equipment called the sewing machine.  I know--I'm out of control.

It's true, I've shown you how to sew many things here on the blog, but, as I've always told you, I'm no expert.  I've just been through a lot of trial & error & I've gotten pretty good at knowing what not to do!

And while I plan to keep on sharing my homespun advice on sewing from time to time, I want to introduce you to a real seamstress, who also happens to be my sister.

This is Amy.  And she's as multi-talented as she is beautiful.  You may recognize her from her other blog, Living the Allergic Life, where she gives practical, true-to-life advice on living with food allergies. (I told you she was multi-talented.)

She now has a second blog called Life is Sew Daily, where she has some super-cute sewing tutorials for all seamstresses, no matter your level of expertise.  Reading her blog is like taking a free online sewing course!  She gives great instructions & is happy to answer your questions as well.

Unlike Yours Truly, Amy has actually had professional sewing classes,  and has a Bachelor's Degree in Home Economics.  So, yeah, she's real smart.

Here are just a few of the projects she's shared so far...

So, add her to your reader, join her site, & sign up for her emails.  You're not going to want to miss anything.  


  1. I have been thinking about getting a sewing machine and easing into things. I used to have absolutely no desire to sew... But now a lot of the projects I want to do seem to invlove needing to sew something... I guess I will have to learn!

    Also, I wanted to let you know that I have a link to your moss topiary post and to your actual blog in my crafty pants friday post. I covered a bunny in some moss! Stop by and check it out if you have some time!

  2. Well, you know darned well I gotta go visit a gal like that. Your sister is beautiful and I am headed over there right now! xo Diana


I love hearing from each of you and will do my best to respond! Thanks so much for stopping by. So glad you're here!
