Featured Favourites // June

It been a little longer than anticipated to bring you the next Featured Favourites because for the last couple of weeks, I have been a very busy little bee setting up the new online shop. Finally, it has been made live!! Yay!! 

To find out more about what we are selling and how it all came about, check out this blog post. 

Anyways, it hasn't stopped me from mentally storing a range of little gems that I am busting to share with you. 

So grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy. :-)

Crafty Cool

Here is an interesting blog post by  littlelambstudios.com about how sewing has helped her love her body. I am inspired by anything that helps women to love themselves more and celebrates their individuality.

Song of the Singer Sewing Machine: The history of the Singer sewing machine has been explored in a BBC radio documentary. My love for sewing and documentary radio all packaged into one. Yessss! :-)

Sewing skill builder

Many of us are teaching ourselves to sew and thanks to the wide array of online material, it has never been easier.

I am so fussy with fit of my handmade clothing. So much so that I ALWAYS make a muslin for any new pattern that I am making. This handy article  by Crafsty goes through how to make the most of your muslins.

Watch it

Take a few minutes out of your day to watch an inspiring video, usually source from TED .

How do we find inspiration for our creative endeavours? Is there any such thing a truly 'original' content these days? Well, watch this video to find some answers to these questions. 

Hear me out

Check out my favourite podcasts of the month.

There are so many great sewing podcasts coming out. I have been soaking up the sounds of  the Maker Style Podcast this month. Rachel interviews heaps of well known bloggers and business owners from the international sewing community and I love the insight into their worlds.

I have never been one to 'binge' watch or listen to anything except that this month I discovered S-town, the latest podcast by the same team from the well-known podcast This American Life. I was absolutely hooked with S-town from the very first episode. It is a 7 episode real-life story set in a small town called Woodstock, (a.k.a. Shit-town). The various characters of the town are profiled and I find them fascinating. The show has been produced beautifully. It is very different from anything I have listened to before. Go check it out! 

 

That's all for this month's episode! 

 I hope you have enjoyed it.
