About me

about_me

Hi, I’m Mandana and I’m all into DIY. I mainly sew clothes for my two lovely boys and myself but I also create patterns for clothes and bags, I print on fabric and much more.

On my blog you will find many free items, like printables, sewing patterns and tutorials for clothes, home deco items, gifts for friends, basics for your wardrobes, bags and many more. Every other Friday I will share a free downloadable pattern with you, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter to never miss a thing:

 

Most of the free patterns on my page will be my own creations, but feel free to submit your own free patterns to be featured on my site here.

While this blog is mainly designed for beginner and intermediate sewists, advanced sewers will find inspiration by my awesome 😉 outfit ideas that we can sew together – and you can support me by helping me to test sew my self-created patterns.

I will also review patterns for kids and adults from well-known pattern companies and other independent designers so you can see the process of making these and the results. In the beginning of each month I will show you my sewing plans for the coming weeks, so you can join in the fun and sew along with me (or just watch me mess up – haha). I’m looking forward to reading your comments, questions, ideas and anything that’s on your sewing mind.

From time to time you will find me asking for testers of all sizes and of all knowledge levels; plus I will offer some great prizes and promos, so you have a chance of getting patterns for free that others have to pay for!

I have started to sew at school when I was about 12 years old. My first project was a pillow in the shape of a jar with a caterpillar appliqued onto it, which I had given to my grandma who cherished it and kept it until the end of her life. Later on in my life I took several sewing classes from time to time, not so much because I needed them, but because I wanted to spend time with people who love sewing just like me. In 2010 I decided to take it a step further and learn how to create patterns on my own.

So sign up for my weekly newsletter to jump on the sewing train with me, get your free patterns and be inspired:

 

And/or get in touch with me and send me a message:

I look forward to hearing from you, sharing inspirations with you, sewing with you!

Yours,

Mandana
