A Big List of Canadian Sewing Blogs And Growing

Photo Source

I know there are lists of sewing blogs out there, and even a map or two of sewing enthusiasts, but I have nonetheless, created my own list and I hope it grows. If you know of a Cdn blog that isn't listed - a blog whose primary purpose is sewing rather than quilting or other crafts - please let me know in the comments and I will edit this list.

Updated - March 2014, with a big thanks to Rose!

February Burda Challenge Completed


These are sweat pants from the March 2014 issue that I made into pjs using fabric from my stash. I removed the cuffs and shortened the legs and miscalculated. So I have to add a cuff back in - in a different fabric. Also I omitted the pockets. Here is the link to these (I plan to make the cardigan on this page too).

I used a shirting cotton - I only had a little over a metre so I really had to 'measure twice and cut once'

I added these cuffs - from an old sheet that I have since used a muslin but luckily I had a little left over to add length to these pjs

Ta -da! February Burda Challenge Completed.

Goodbye Mr Spock, Spring 2015 Ottobre and A Burda Magazine Winner (but not in that order)

The Vintage Burda Magazine winner is...........Nhi. I'll send you an email shortly and post your Burda mag on Monday. I'll post the next vintage Burda magazine contest in a few weeks....

Today I received my issue of Ottobre Magazine and here is a preview:

This is definitely my favourite issue so far ...I've only been subscribing for a couple of years and I tend to like their designs....

And I couldn't let the day go without mentioning Mr Spock:

Spock your $5 dollar bills....

Leonard Nimoy is gone and it hits me hard. I am a big fan. I feel a Star Trek weekend coming tribute

A friend and I have a running list of would-be-next-dead celebrities and while William Shatner is on that list, Leonard Nimoy never was...(Jimmy Carter, Phil Donahue, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth are prominent on the list though).
It's a strange pass time.
