Hi - I'm Hattie, a newbie to sewing and blogging.
I can oogle over all the amazing projects out there for [literally] hours but then I must admit I get a bit depressed that I am no where near ready to make any of them yet!
I've made pincusions, a sewing machine cover, curtains, sewn greeting cards and an apron. Can you think back to what other simple (yet challenging) and satisfying beginner projects you started out doing? I'd love to hear from you and take on some new projects! Any tips for beginners, techniques or free patterns would also be awesome!
Hi Hattie, I know exactly where you are at. We have all been there at some point. Give me a quilt of cushion and I have no problems, even kids cloths. But add a bust and hips and I struggle to get the fit right., then I through it in and have another UFO to add to the pile. It was suggested to me to start with skirts and I feel I have mastered the skirt, and am ready for the next challenge. I think it all comes down to practice and making the same thing numerous times until you get it right. So find a skirt pattern you love and sew sew sew. Good luck and enjoy the journey, I am.
There is a great Simplicity pattern 2374, I made for a cardigan which only needs 3 pieces! I would totally recommend that!
Heres my version if your interested!
