My very first blog post!

Here goes!  I think it is kind of scary and intimidating to write a blog, but I’m going to try and see how it goes.
For about six months ago or so I started my sewing journey.  I have found some amazing bloggers out there whom I’ve been stalking while trying to learn as much as I can from their fabulous blogs.
It all started when I came a cross a pin on Pinterest to a tutorial on how to make a bubble dress posted by straight-grain.com I tried to follow it but the bodice came out way too small for my little girl.  But boy did I get excited when I read that An, who writes that blog, was working on a real pattern for the bubble dress so I waited patiently and bought the pattern as soon as she released it and that became the first piece of usable clothing I have ever made.

And after that I was hooked!  I have been hoarding patterns and I’m slowly building up a nice fabric stash as well (don’t tell my husband).  I made quite a few dresses, skirts and shorts this summer and now I’ve even made pants with sippers and all, really proud of myself!  
I have been wanting to get a serger so I can get that nice finish on the inside of my garments as well as trying my luck on some knits.  So last weak I went ahead I bought one, what a joy!  It came with a class on learning how to use it and I’m going to that next wednesday, but I have been playing around with it and I think I’m getting the hang of it.
Now I just have to start working on my photographing skills and try to get my little models to be more cooperative.
Here is a peak at some of the things I have made in the last few months.  There is more but I don’t have shareable pictures off everything.

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
