Happy 2019 – My Sewing Journey So Far and Future Sewing Projects

It’s that time again: 365 days and many sewing projects have gone by and it’s the last day of the year 2018!🥂 The perfect moment to reflect on the past months and to think about the new year ahead of us.

Happy New Year Sign
It’s The Last Day of The Year. All The Best for 2019.

What Has Happened So Far

My highlight this year? The launch of my own blog of course💁‍♀️Surprise! It wasn’t obvious to me at first but I was really looking for something that I am passionate about, something that is useful and something new. After a bit of back and forth trying out all sorts of things I ended up signing up for a sewing course.

That was in the summer of 2018 and it was love at first stitch. 💖

When I told friends about my new hobby, I got lots of questions like how I came across sewing, where I purchase the patterns or tips on how to get started. And this is when the idea of an own blog arose💡

The goal of my blog is to share the love, it’s really simple. Here you’ll find:

  1. Easy sewing projects for beginners
  2. Step-by-step guides to decide what sewing machine can work for you
  3. Important lessons for sewing beginners that I’ve learnt (the hard way)

Starting my Blog – From Easy Sewing Projects to Dressmaking

With the brilliant support of my husband, we started the blog soon after we had the idea. Why wait for the new year or any other special occasion when you can kick off that very day, right? As I am still very much a sewing beginner, the domain name sewingbeginner.com seemed perfect and luck was on our side that it was still available😊

The first blog post My Sewing Journey – How It All Began was published on 21st November 2018. Since then, we’ve been busy bees and have created the following tutorials, tips and guides for you. We were busy bees indeed. 🐝. Have a look at let me know what you think.

At this point, a big thank you to all of you for your great feedback and amazing support we’ve had so far. You’re the best! 🙏

New Sewing Projects for Beginners in 2019

While I’m proud of what we have achieved in such a short period of time, I am more than excited about the road ahead of us sewing beginners. There are many ideas and projects that I want to work on, document and share with you. There’s so much more to come!

A little sneak peek? I’ve been working on an instruction booklet to sew your own tote bag with a front pocket in just 6 steps!🛍️ It’s a great project for beginners and you’ll be a master afterwards in sewing straight lines. Plus, it’s a project that you simply can’t mess up, so you’ll gain confidence for future sewing projects😊 So stay tuned, more to come soon!

I wish you and your loved ones all the best for the year 2019!🎊🍾

Yvonne
