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.
