Fun FO Friday - Including a Giveaway :)

Over the past weekend I decided to continue my sewing projects which I started on 31st December 2013 (Yip, I stopped sewing at midnight and haven't picked up the project again :))

These projects were part of the course I am currently taking on Craftsy - Sewing With Knits

Online Sewing Class

I love this course and am finally back on track with my sewing :)

On Saturday I finished my Surplice dress and went on to create another surplice dress :)

This course is so wonderfully easy and well explained that Jas (she is 15) made a dress with me and hers looks amazing!

In this course I learnt to sew 5 different wardrobe must-haves and have loved making each of them:

And last - but certainly not least (this is just the beginning) - my two versions of the surplice dress in two different types of jersey.

Don't you just love Craftsy?

What is it that makes me love Craftsy so much - let me count the ways:

  1. I can take the courses on my own time whenever I am ready.
  2. I can revisit the courses over and over until I am comfortable with the techniques.
  3. I can ask my tutors questions (in paid courses) which I will get answered in a "Virtual Classroom" platform
  4. I can also get help from my fellow students on the platform (free and paid classes)
  5. I get all the necessary materials in a super, well-explained PDF format
  6. I get hours and hours of HD quality, step-by-step video lessons
  7. I can share my projects and see other shared projects of other students
  8. The courses teach you unknown techniques in clear, precise steps, taking you from novice to advanced in a delightful, relaxed manner.
  9. The courses are also great ways to refresh known techniques and learn something new along the way.
