Happy New Year!!!

I hope you all had a lovely festive season with lots of love and even more food. I had a wonderful time with my family and friends.
Last year I finally started sewing a lot more after a few years of not making anything. I’m getting better at selecting fabric and patterns that I will actually wear. The clothes I made before rarely got worn. Either the fit wasn’t right or the finish wasn’t good enough.  All the clothes that I have made this year I wore at least a few times. Some a lot more, but I have not blogged about them yet.

So my goal for 2015 is to make more clothes that I will wear. I’m aiming for 1 piece of clothing a month. In 2014 I made 9 pieces of clothing and accessories and I only started sewing in June.

My Christmas present might help, my dad got me with secret Santa and he got me the book love at first stitch by Tilly Walnes. But my mom got an even better present for New Year from her parents, an overlocker/seger. Yeah I wanted one for ages. Look at my our lovely sewing corner in my room. 

And I want to blog about my projects more regularly than I’m doing at the moment. It’s not because I lacking an interest but because I need someone to make pictures of me wearing the clothing. I haven’t told anyone that I’m writhing a sewing blog so nobody understands why I want photos of me wearing my handmade clothes. Maybe I should tell someone?
