Once a month, we highlight blogs our staff is reading right now!
Melissa’s blog is one of our go-to blogs for clothing pattern and inspiration (hey, we may be quilters, but we enjoy looking at cute clothes, too!). From sewing for girls and boys to adult sizes, Melissa’s free patterns and tutorials are easy-to-follow and super stylish! She also has easy pillow, place mat, and other small patterns available. And if you visit her site now, you’ll be summer ready with her 30 days of sundresses blogs and cute swimsuit coverups!
Amy’s Creative Side
Amy’s blog is perfect for all those sewers who want to be in the know! Not only is her blog a smorgasbord of gorgeous projects and giveaways, but she also features a weekly quiltcast, where she (and friend April Rosenthal) share tips for getting things done, the tools that work best for them, and other quilting and piecing tricks!
Simple Simon and Company
Written by two Elizabeth’s, this blog is perfect for everyone trying to make more time for sewing! They’re both two busy moms, so their patterns and tutorials are easy, quick, and super fun! From clothing to bags to great sewing tips (especially on topics that we’ve all wondered, but never asked), their personalities shine through, inspire, motivate, and most importantly, make us feel like it’s ok to take time to enjoy family and life in addition to the creative process.
