26 Jun New Blogroll & a Thrift
Blogging has expanded my life unlike any other undertaking due to the many connections I’ve made – real life and virtual.
Goodbye Valentino links to nearly two hundred sewing blogs through the Mood Sewing Network, the RTW Fasters’ Page, the BurdaStyle 2014 Bloggers, and now my new Blogroll located at the top of the page.
In addition to filling in the gaps with a new Blogroll, I’m writing today to introduce you to two bloggers – one very new, and one new to me 😉
Maybe you already read Featherstitch Avenue. If not, read it.
The blog was created in February 2015 by Tracey Hogan, one of my classmates in a Susan Khalje course and her husband, Santiago, a professional photographer. Featherstitch Avenue’s weekly posts feature stunning photography, edgy clothing sewn by Tracey and authentic narratives. In the photograph above, Tracey is modeling her latest Alabama Chanin creation.
The second blog which is new to me is Creating in the Gap.
Margo, it’s creator has been blogging for three years, and I’ve missed it! Margo’s style is one I identify with. Her outdoor photography is lovely and her posts feature completed clothing and to the point text.
Most of the blogs I’ve listed are ones I’ve been reading for a while, but I’m always happy to learn about more! Feel free to share with me those sewing blogs I’ve overlooked that inspire you. While 200 links seems like a lot, I am sure I’ve only scratched the surface. 😉
In closing I’m sharing an easy summer thrifting project. Have you seen the cute aprons made from men’s shirts?
They are great church bazaar items, hostess gifts etc… After seeing one in a retail kitchen store for $50, I got busy 😉
Not that you need one, but several tutorials are available on Pinterest – here’s one featuring different options.
The contrast ties might be more effective slightly larger – another time perhaps, as now…… it’s time to start sewing – I mean cooking 🙂
Best wishes to all for a great weekend!
