Over the years I have been blogging, I have gradually built up a huge resource of my own sewing tutorials.
My Mum and Granny were both dressmakers and taught me to sew as a child, but I didn't really develop much of an interest in sewing until I had my own kids and began making things for them.
Being a teacher, I have carefully recorded how I've made things, and created over 150 sewing tutorials with detailed photos and descriptions, so that I can share the 'how tos' and others can have a go at making things for themselves and others too.
Creativity and making things are such important skills to learn and have. Sewing just happens to be my medium. My Mum and Granny used to sew mainly clothes for us out of necessity - it was cheaper to make than buy. That is no longer the case for clothes now, but it still holds true that to make your own clothes and other things gives not only a great deal of personal satisfaction, but also results in unique and one-of-a-kind things to keep for yourself or give as gifts. Designer products if you like - not just the mass produced store-bought things that everyone has!
Sewing has allowed me to make so many things for my kids and others over the years, as I've received many requests for things that you may not be able to just go out and buy, like,
a carrot pencil case for a friend's birthday..
or penguin suits for a whole class of kids when they won
A bag for a friend whose old one had broken, but she loved the style and wanted another just the same.
Or even just a bag for myself, exactly the size, style, shape and colour I want!
I have made so many different things from bags to clothes, pencil cases to oven mitts and novelty gifts for Christmas.
So how do I find these sewing tutorials?
All my sewing tutorials are grouped together to make them easier to browse through or look for specific things.
You can start on the main page here and choose from there what type of sewing tutorial you are looking for.
I have tried to make each tutorial as clear and simple as possible to anyone can have a go at them. I even sometimes go back and use my own tutorials to make things again!
I have also turned each of the tutorials into PDF versions which can be downloaded for free if you prefer that! All links can be found on my tutorial pages or on each individual post.
I hope I can encourage and inspire others to sew and create in their own way - perhaps saving money, developing their skills of dexterity and creativity or simply just having fun!
Please do go take a look at My Free Sewing Tutorials
and I would love to see pictures of anything you make with them too!
