Taking the Plunge
Well, here it is...I am taking the plunge into the world of Blogging. I have read and subscribed to many of the last couple of years so I decided to join in on the fun. I hope my blog will be fun, crafty and creative for all those reading it. Periodically, I will post tutorials on different things.
To get to know me, I thought I would share a little about myself and Alicia's Sew Amazing Creations. I, of course, am Alicia, the owner and designer of Alicia's Sew Amazing Creations. I started sewing some years back because I needed some curtains for my bedroom...nothing fancy, just straight panels. I have always been a crafty person and loved the idea of getting to use my mom's sewing machine. (Back then I had to borrow a sewing machine because I didn't have one of my own.) I was really pleased with my curtains so I decided one day to but a really easy pattern to make an outfit for my step-daughter. This was a challenge for me because I had never read a pattern before and all the terminology was confusing to me. I thought I did a fabulous job on that outfit...today, looking back, I can tell you that outfit was nowhere near fabulous, LOL. I didn't sew for a while except if I needed something or someone wanted some simple curtains. Then I started making pillowcase dresses and was fun for a while but one day, I ran across two girls making patterns and selling them on Facebook. I was in love!! That is when I decided to get to sewing full time instead of just spuradically as the mood hit me.
Now, after years of off and on sewing, I am in full swing and love sewing, especially little girls' clothing. I still do the curtains and pocketbooks, etc. My main selling is done now from my Facebook account and I also have an etsy account. For those out there interested in my creations, feel free to check out my stuff at www.facebook.com/alicias.sew.amazing.creations.
This will be a learning experience for me, so bare with me as I learn about blogging. I hope all of you enjoy and feel free to leave me posts if there is anything specific you want to know about sewing or crafting. I am not an expert but I can let you in on my little secrets. =)
