Sewing Tutorial Round Up

Long before I became interested in writing product reviews, I had another passion. That passion is sewing. I haven’t shared a lot about that with you all, but it is something I really enjoy doing. I’ve posted several of my sewing projects at my other blog- http://glazedonuts.blogspot.com. Mostly what I sew is clothing for my daughter. I find a lot of joy and gratification in creating something that is usable. I especially enjoy turning old clothing into clothing for my daughter.

Anyhow, I have a huge folder of bookmarked tutorials on my computer. This folder contains links to sewing projects all over the web. Some of these projects I have done, most of them I have not. I have a habit of finding a pattern I love and making a million different versions of it.

I thought I’d share some of these great free tutorials with you all. Most are girl patterns because I have a girl. Some are unisex, though.

Smocked Sundress– tutorial includes directions for size 12 months- size 4, but I think you could really adapt this to any size

    Thanks for all the patterns. I haven’t seen a few of these and am adding them to my favorites list. Grover family, no need to worry about not having a girl – I don’t either. But, I love sewing girly stuff so, I make it and give them to charity.
