Top 50 Blogs For Sewing Students

by EduRefMay 12, 2013

The need for people to connect with their ancestral roots, the need to work on something physical rather than virtual, and the currently down economic climate have all converged into a sort of “perfect storm” for the crafting arts. If you’re talking about making something that’s practical and wearable (not like this) then the grande dame of all the homemaking arts is sewing. Not to bash knitting, but it’s pretty hard to knit yourself a whole dress. A college student can knock out a simple sewn dress in a weekend with some practice.

If you’re taking a sewing class, you’re probably working on very simple patterns at first, such as an apron or an A-line skirt. Where can you go for additional inspiration? We’ve searched the Net to find 50 awesome blogs that sewing students will love. Laugh, cry and cheer as you see the “sewing fails” that these brave seamstresses (and seamsters?) share on their blogs. Here they are, in alphabetical order… 50 top blogs that showcase patterns, sewing tips, and other inspiration.
