This Blog Is Not For You is about all things handmade. On this blog you will find tips, inspiration and tutorials. If you love sewing, we’ll get along just fine!
Hi, I’m Charlie. Welcome to This Blog Is Not For You. 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!
I set up This Blog Is Not For You in September 2012, which was about the time I started sewing my own clothes. My handmade wardrobe has been growing along with my skills and experience ever since. 2012 was also the year I moved to London, UK. After some very exciting and adventurous couple of years, I recently moved back to Germany and now live near Munich.
In 2014, I started a small business under the name of Audrey & Me Patterns, making and selling my own sewing patterns, which you can check out here.
When I’m not sitting behind the sewing machine, I work full-time as a psychologist. From time to time I write mental-health related posts and share my thoughts about how sewing and creativity affects our mental health, helps us cope with stress and promotes body-positivity! If you are interested reading about these topics, please have a look at the Sewing & Mental Health category on this blog. There you’ll find all psychology articles I’ve written so far.
So if you’re keen to see a sewing fanatic and fabric hoarder fill their closet with slow fashion – you’ve come to the right place! It is an honour to have you here.
