Start Here

Who has time to actually make things anymore? To fill their lives and surround themselves with things that inspire, define, and delight them? Not many people that I know that’s for sure..

But I have decided that I am going to make time and Ihope you will too! It’s not because I have a crazy amount of free time or because I am lucky enough to be able to stay home all day creating. In fact I am a college student who is working her way through while trying to maintain some sort of social life and sanity.

It’s because I need to make time, although I will admit that sometimes it feels more like taking it. If it is just a quick fifteen minutes to make a cute pouch, or an entire weekend to crochet make an afghan, these small moments of creativity are what make me feel like I am in control of the world around me and that’s what I hope to share with you here at Sew Uprising.

So take a look around! You’ll find a little bit of everything creative here. From sewing projects and tutorials, DIY home decor, crochet comfort pieces, maybe even a few recipes or two, among many, many other things. If its inspiring to me, it’ll be here.

I hope you find something that inspires you too! And don’t forget to subscribe to my blog via email while your here!
