✂️ Me-Made-May came and went and it was very inspiring to see all the sewing creativity going on in the world. People have mad skills for sure, I was blown away every day! As for myself I made a pledge to finish three garments in May (which I almost kept). Last year I realized that my handmade wardrobe lacks basics, so I have made a real effort sewing more of those. My Back to Basics wardrobe was fun, and I think I will do more projects like that in the future.
This year I noticed a lack blouses in my wardribe, because I’ve had to let go of several lately since they were literally falling part due to wear and tear (I still mourn them). Luckily I finished two blouses in May and I will probably do a few more in the future.
✂️ I’m finally making some progress on my activewear sewing book. One issue I’ve struggled with is time (don’t we all?) and another is deciding on all the things I want to include in the book (the list keeps expanding). But I’ve decided to put a cap on my content now and focus on getting all those tutorials and content produced. And then keep the rest for a possible part 2! And I will do my best to avoid dodgy English and get some professional help with editing the book! I have also decided on the book design (the pic above is from a design sample I’m working on). It will be an e-book at this point, but if there is some interest and financially feasible I might do a print later. But right now I just need to test waters first and see if there is a market. Also Melissa Fehr is doing a book too about sewing activewear (with a big publisher). That one will be a print book, with patterns as well. So that is something to look forward to. Hopefully it won’t be too much overlap and we can’t have too many sewing books, right 😉
