Sewing Blog

After a ridiculous amout of dithering, I have decided to start a sewing blog. I'm not going to start it until January, so I can do it as next year's new years resolution. When I get around to it, I thought I'd do a tutorial for this skirt:

I made it over the weekend, and it was probably an hour of sewing or less, start to finish.

I read a few sewing blogs, so I know what I like, but what do ya'alls like in a sewing blog?

When I read a tutorial blog, I like when they have pictures of the steps. It makes for a long blog, but to me the picture makes more sense than how they explain it, or it helps me understand their explanation better. So detailed pictures I guess. I also like when they number the steps, making it a little easier for me to follow rather than paragraph after paragraph. Also if I print it off it's easier to keep in order. Those are to few suggestions that I have. Hope they help, and good luck.

I like anything on a cute model who is under three feet tall. Please keep that in mind. Boys, girls, puppies... BUT SHORT.

Inspiration is what I go for. Some bloggers are great at concise tutorials, some are great at logging each step with a photo, and some are just eye candy. I read them all. I enjoy your blog for the wit and vivacity I find here, and I'm excited to see your sewing blog if only to get new ideas - your photos of quilts here have been amazing! My aunt just auctioned off a quilt at a charity event for $22,000. Quilters have my respect. It's not just an art - it's an exact science. I can't wait to see what you post!
