After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing I have finally taken the first step into starting a making blog! I already write a blog on environmental hope over at Heathery Bean, but this is my first foray into writing about the things I create.
I’ve been a maker for my whole life, but started seriously making garments about 5 years ago. It’s been in the background for a while, and it just gets better and better. I am sure that you all know how it takes a while before you really make things that are truly ‘you’.
And here I am, getting more and more successful in my makes, and now that I live by myself and have a dedicated set up catered to sewing, it makes it incredibly easy to just do a little most days. Couple that with the fact that I live on an island that has no clothes shops and internet shopping is invariably hopeless, and that as a tall woman the chances of clothes fitting as I want being very slim all the factors are adding up to make home made clothing the way of my future.
Thank you for reading, I am really excited to be starting on this journey with you all!
PS. I didn’t make the wetsuit…
