Welcome to the Sew Sarah blog! I first learned to sew clothes with my mom, when I wanted a pair of Jamz. My mom said, “I’m not paying that much for a basically a pair of boxer shorts.” So, off we went to Hancock’s, where we bought a simple pattern, some neon cotton fabric, and elastic. I learned how to cut out a pattern, make an elastic waistband and hem a pair of shorts. Shortly after that, she taught me how to make a scrunchie by sewing a simple tube, inserting elastic, turning it right side out and sewing it into a circle.
Fast forward a few years, and I purchased my first sewing machine in college. I sewed simple garments and learned to quilt when I was pregnant with my first child. My mom helped me make Vincent’s crib set and curtains and I still have his crib blanket. When Vincent was a toddler, I worked on the weekend at a quilt store, called Material Girls.
My intention for this space is to share my creative process, sewing and quilting tips and tricks, my quilt designs and my life as seen through my crafts. Thanks for joining me on this new adventure!
