My Maternity Leave ended this week so it’s back to work I go.
As I ease myself back into the workforce, I’m predicting that I won’t have the brain energy to blog as much as I’d like to.
But I get by with a little help from my friends. Like Trixi from Coloured Buttons.
Some lovely bloggy friends will be guest posting here over the next few weeks to aid me in my transition.
I adore Trixi’s goal- “Teaching the world to sew one stitch at a time.”
I don’t know about you but I had been scarred by High School Sewing Classes. (My mum finished off my sewing assignments at school. Thanks, Mum!)
Until recently, I really believed that sewing was not something I “did.”
Then I met Trixi via her Instagram feed.
She truly believes that everybody has the ability to sew and creates simple but sweet sewing project.
I purchased her book ‘Sew Together Grow Together’ and it gave me the confidence to try these finger puppets.
I kinda feel like Trixi is my own personal Sewing Coach on Instagram. She is forever providing inspiration, support and cheer-leading.
Thank you to Trixi for this tutorial on how to make a fridge magnet, perfect for Mother’s Day.
