Back-to-School series: Hand-Sewing
If you're interested in learning more about hand sewing, you should check out my guest post today on Sarah's adorable blog Sew Sweetness. I'm teaching the three hand stitches that have proven to be the most useful to me over the past 5 years, and they also happen to be three of the easiest stitches out there - gotta love that, right? ;)
While you're stopping by, you should browse through the other Back-to-School posts. It's a really great series that covers basic sewing techniques. Sometimes we as bloggers lose touch with reality and assume people have a broader working knowledge that they really do, so I think it was a genius idea for her to dedicate this month to "the basics" for people who are just starting out and might not be familiar with all the jargon. (...or for people like me who are rusty on a couple techniques because I haven't used them in a looong time).
I spent some time surfing around her blog this morning, and stumbled across a fabulous post about working within your sewing budget and being more economical with your supplies here. She has some great tips and it's definitely worth a read!
