Thisblogisnotforyou is about all things handmade. On this blog you will find tips, inspiration and tutorials.

Welcome to my small pretty corner of the interwebs! Make yourself at home. Grab a coffee and join the conversation! You can check out my tutorials and make your own handmade things or track my progress in sewing my own wardrobe! I share my seamstress successes, but also my fashion fails. There will be a lot of helpful tips and tricks, patterns and instructions along the way, I promise!

Sewing can be but it doesn’t have to be rocket science! I believe everyone can be creative and make their own handmade creations. It doesn’t need to be perfect to be beautiful!

About me

I discovered my love for sewing a few years ago and since I bought myself a sewing machine, I’ve been teaching myself to make handmade clothes.

As you might have noticed, I do a little bit of everything, trying out new things all the time and improving my skills in the old ones.

I originally started this blog to track my progress and share my projects with others. When I started I had no idea how huge and amazing the online sewing community is – a great thing when you know no one in real life who sews!

Besides sewing I am a big fan of painting, drawing, reading and watching old Hollywood movies. I love 1920-1950’s fashion, music and movies. I am crazy about Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Gabrielle Chanel (Dita von Teese, Jane Austen, the list goes on) and can’t stop myself from buying chocolate and books, although I have way too many – books, not chocolate. Chocolate never lasts very long in this household!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and enjoy checking out my blog! If you enjoy what I do and want to support me, buy me a cup of coffee.

Happy Sewing!
