Behind the Scenes: Blog Layout

Hellooo everyone! Just a quick update! In case you haven’t noticed yet, This Blog has a new header (and some minor layout changes on different pages). I wanted to wait and do a major blog makeover by the end of the year, but I had some spare time on my hands on this long Bank Holiday weekend and tried out a few things. The result was a new header:

I’m writing this post mainly to keep a record of the old header which I still really like, but the blog’s name got a bit lost in the busy drawing.

I couldn’t simply get rid of the old header, so I decided to merge the old and the new one. 🙂 I needed to shuffle some parts of the old header to fit around the new layout.

For those of you interested – I do the blog’s design myself (Mr Thisblogisnotforyou helps me with implementing the design). I use different programs and techniques and often use hand-drawn images which I scan and then edit with programs such as Photoshop or Inkscape (which is the open source alternative to Illustrator).

I hope you like the new design! I also changed a few things on the tutorial page. I’ll grab a coffee and my sewing machine now for some finishing touches on a few things that need to be photographed today – sun is shining after almost a whole week of rain!

Happy sewing!

Stay in touch!

  1. I love your new header! It is much easier to find the blogs name now 😉 I was also always wondering if you made the drawing yourself and I am mighty impressed! Enjoy sewing!

  2. The new design looks great! The first few times, I had trouble locating the title of your blog. This is a great way to keep that fantastic illustration!
