Sew Close To My Heart started after I developed a new found love of sewing. Having no real training, I decided to dive in with YouTube videos, blog tips, and PDF patterns to get started. About a year ago, I purchased a sewing machine after reading a few reviews. I started simple: Christmas stockings. I branched out to mostly dresses for my two daughters. Most of my projects have been for children, specifically my two daughters.
I hope to continue to learn and improve my sewing while documenting my journey through this blog. Successes and fails alike. I hope that I can inspire those on the fence, thinking about starting this wonderful hobby, to dive in and give it a go. I plan to provide basic tips as I learn them and show projects as I complete them. I will provide links to my fabrics choices when possible and PDF pattern websites I’ve used. If I follow a tutorial, expect to see a link there as well. Maybe one day I’ll even learn how to draft patterns myself!
Mostly, this is a website for sharing my journey. No drama allowed. I will do my best to stay positive and will not tolerate inappropriate comments!
Happy sewing 🙂
