Hooked on sewing: my favourite sites

Posted on: July 19, 2011

Now that the warm weather has set in, I am finding it really hard to pick up those knitting needles.  I also have to life-sized dolls that I can dress (aka my kids LOL), so I am having a great time finding sewing websites.  Among my favourites these days are the following:

MADE: There is a great sewing pattern for kids’ shorts.  My son is a slim size 6 so I used her tutorial to adjust the pattern by tracing a pair of his shorts.  I used “scrap” fabric that I had hanging around as a prototype and it worked wonderfully.

Everything Etsy: 101 sewing tutorials for summer – lots and lots of different projects to try!

Ruffles and Stuff: I love the photos and the projects on this site.  Great tutorials on how to make ruffles!

The Craft Blog: From the Canadian Living website, it features all sorts of different projects, not only sewing but also knitting, crocheting and much more.

What are your top picks?
