I'm pretty sure I couldn't live without my GoogleReader. It's the most used app on my phone and most likely most visited website on my browser. Each day when I scroll through all the posts, I never fail to be amazed and inspired. I don't think I could keep on top of all the blogs I follow without it.
So, since I've been toying with this idea for a while, I've decided that I'm gonna start a weekly (Google)Reader Round-up!
I know a lot of blogs feature these types of posts and as a sewing community we are all drawn to the same posts but I hope I'm able to unearth something different. The links will be mostly sewing related but I'll probably include some fashion ones as well (and the occasional recipe if I find something exciting!)
So here goes for week 1;
1. Gertie shares some interesting info on directional stitching as part of her sew-along. I'd never heard of this before but will be trying it on my next flared skirt project.
2. Erin from Miss Crayola Creepy has complied an awesome link list of fitting tips! This will be soo useful for me since fitting is always an area I struggle with.
3. Over on Shop the Garment District, there is an photo copy of trouser fitting/altering steps that will be invaluable to me as I'm about to make my first pair! (I'm using Colette's Clover pattern and I'm all set to go!)
4. Kate at Scathingly Brilliant helps every girl out with some closet organisation ideas, I'll certainly incorporate a few next time I rearrange my room.
5. Maddie fills us in on her trip to NYC and makes me rather jealous at the fabric shopping she done whilst there. I especially love that she's listed some stores to visit if you're there.
6. And finally, Katie of The Little Red Squirrel reviews my home city Glasgow! And says some rather lovely things about my work. I'm also rather impressed she managed to get a photo where the shop looks tidy!
I hope you like these posts, let me know if any inspire you!
In other news, I've been sewing loads this week! I'll be these makes next week along with revealing the details behind my Halloween costume.
