It’s me!

Hi fellow sewers,

I am Maddie, aka Thimble Bee. This is my very first post and I’m honestly a bit daunted. I used to blog for a lovely company called Rose Honick and make DIY posts using their gorgeous hand printed fabric (heart-eyes). But, I am soon graduating from university and thought it’s time I better start standing on my own two feet. So here I am!

As a sewer I adore vintage clothes and I am continually attempting to mix the modern with the old, for a very original style. I believe that sewing is a way to be entirely unique and I love being able to walk out my door knowing no-one else is going to be wearing what I am.

The main reason I am starting this blog is to let the world know of my adventures/horrors of going through the Sew My Style project. This is a fabulous project all about raising awareness for the slow fashion movement,where you sew one thing a month, but at the end of the year I will end up with a drop-dead fabulous capsule wardrobe, and honestly, what’s better than that?

Along with the Sew My Style Project, I have also set myself the challenge of completing my Make Nine list (which can be seen below). These are patterns which are not part of the other project but I have been wantingly-staring at for a long time, so hopefully I can find time to make all of those too.

So that my itinerary for the year, what are your plans?
