Once upon a time, I was all over the internet. So much so, that I was sick of myself. I am no longer on Facebook or Twitter. But you can find me on Instagram, @TheDemersDogs, if you are interested. My dogs have a bigger following than I do there. I'm also on Pinterest and YouTube (see icons in sidebar).
I'm back on the blog because I'm participating in Project #SewMyStyle in the coming year. I'll be making a new garment each month with a group of other sewists from around the world. I thought I'd post about my adventure as I go. You can learn more about the project on Bluebird Fabric's website. You can also follow along on Instagram with #SewMyStyle. We'll be posting our projects at the end of each month starting in January.
Although I've sewn most of my life and even had my own business, I never truly followed patterns. I made my own patterns or reconstructed and deconstructed clothing and accessories. In the past year, I've forced myself to read and follow patterns thoroughly. This is a big deal for someone who generally bucks being told what to do. It made me slow down and enjoy the process more. And, of course, my sewing has improved leaps and bounds. Oh, and I bought myself a serger which has been a game changer for me.
Sew...so, I'm back and we'll see how and where this takes us.
