In a little over 3 years I have posted 400 times. Time flies, as it certainly doesn’t feel like 3 years, and 400 posts sounds a lot too.
I still like to blog about my projects and have comments and ideas from the international sewing community. My sewing has evolved a bit during that time too. When I look back at my first posts (or the reviews in my first year on PR) I see garments that are no longer in my closet, either for fit reasons or for style/fabric. When I first found Pattern review and blogs, I certainly got carried away with projects I liked, and bought and made patterns that really were not my style. Gradually I have been sewing more things that I really like and actually wear. Of course it still happens, buying a fabric or pattern on an impulse and regretting it later, but not very much any more.
Give away! (not possible to enter any more)
One of the things I tried during these 3 years is making bags, but I found out this is really not for me. I still have a beautiful piece of dark red leather in my collection and keep one pattern specifically for that, but I will give away my two Amy Butler bag patterns: the Sophia bag and the Weekender bag. Leave a comment on this post if you would one of these indicating which one you would like (note: the weekender bag is difficult to make and needs a lot of fabric/interfacing etc. I never made the Sophia bag but it looks less complicated).
One little caveat: you must have left a comment on my blog in the past year or be a follower of my blog to participate in the draw.
