Your Top Ten Sewing Blogs

I was going to list the Top Ten blogs and then all of the Honorable Mentions in one post - ummmm not so fast.  I wrote up a list that encompassed FIVE pages of blogs!


So the lists will appear in two posts ~ this first one listing the top ten and the second will be all of the blogs mentioned with links.  That's why I'm doing them in two parts because what's the point of making a list of blogs, if you can't click on the links and visit them.  That will take a minute so look for it this weekend when I have a little more time! 



Finally thank you so much to everyone who left a comment. I would like to explain a little of how this list came to be. If you left the name of a blog that was already included on Madalynne's or my list, I didn't include it on this list, because it was already recognized. The blogs listed below received the most nominations from the comments left on my two blog posts. 

So without further ado, here are your Top Ten Sewing Blogs!

1.  Handmade by Carolyn (13 votes)


2.  Goodbye Valentino (13 votes)


3.  Erica B.'s - D.I.Y. Style! (11 votes)


4.  Stitches & Seams (9 votes)


5.  Amanda's Sewing Adventure (8 votes)


6.  LaSewista! (7 votes)


7.  Lower Your Presser Foot (7 votes)


8.  Real Life Live & Unscripted (7 votes)


9.  Sewing on the Edge (6 votes)


10. Miss Celie's Pants (5 votes)




I thought I would add the vote count so that you'd know it wasn't arbitrary.  I added links for these blogs, as well as, a picture of the author.  All pics are from their blogs and I hope the blog authors don't mind that I lifted them!  I read every one of these blogs and know that each one of them contains a wealth of sewing and fashion information!

As I said earlier, the remaining list will be posted this weekend.  There are quite a few "new to me" blogs and I think you too will find some new sewing inspiration from this list.  After this next post appears, I will merge the information from all of the lists to a new post that will appear at the top of my blog for future reference.

So, I hope your favorites made the top ten of either Madalynne's, my list or the sewist's choice listing.

...as always more later!

  14. Interesting reading, Carolyn. I went back to the original post and read the comments. A lot of great blogs, many new to me. I did not comment as your's is the first blog I discovered and I tend to read many of those listed from your blog-roll. My home page has one blog listed, yours, and two forum, Stitcher's Guild and Fashion Incubator. Looking forward to see what you add to your blog roll.

  19. Much like you, after reading Madalynn's 'best of' post something kept lingering/nagging me in the back of my mind. What struck me as odd about her list was that everyone mentioned was a combination of young, slim or fair skinned (to put it bluntly). My internal dialogue was...Really? Is this it? I don't know...lets just say it rubbed me the wrong way.

    So many thanks for taking the time to highlight those who are also creating amazing clothes but fall outside of those buckets
