My name is Hannah, welcome to my littke corner of the internet. After receiving a sewing machine for my 21st birthday and subsequently gently dipping my toe into the whole idea of ‘sewing your own’, I stumbled across the world of sewing blogs and indie pattern companies, and was hooked. My ultimate goal is to achieve a wardrobe were at least most of it is handmade – I am passionate about making it yourself, being more self reliant and creating a beautiful (I hope) and wearable handmade wardrobe. Over a year and a half since being given my Singer, I have decided to set about recording my attempts at creating my own clothes. A fine art graduate working as a cook, this blog may (or may not) feature over spill from these other (still creative) aspects of my life.
My passion for sharing my love of all things handmade on here is expanding from sewing as the blog stretches to involve my othe great love: food. A student at Ballymaloe Cookery School in Co. Cork, Ireland, formally training to be a chef, I hope to detail various foodie bits and bobs on here, as well as various ramblings about food ethics, production and general consumption. A break from sewing, the blog is still very much about being creative and appreciating the beauty in handmade.
*Sewing will continue to be featured on here – it is still a sewing blog, but now with little sidelines and add ons (one could argue you’re now getting more for your time perusing the blog).*
You can find more photos of my makes (edible, stitched and painted) over on Instagram.
