Sew Cute, Sew Easy.. Learn to Sew

Have you ever wanted to learn to sew? Have a lonely sewing machine? A desire to make cute things for your kids if you only knew how?

Wendi Gratz of Shiny Happy World comes to the rescue!

Wendi is a woman on a mission to teach people to sew. Shiny Happy World is Wendi’s well thought out blog which contains step by step tutorials, how to videos and free patterns. What makes Wendi’s blog different is her careful consideration in preparing the sewer with the skills needed to successful complete a project.

Wendi’s sewing school and embroidery school videos are free and available on her website. All skills needed to complete Wendi’s patterns are covered in the online videos.

Ready to get started? 

Wendi suggests absolute beginners read some of the basic posts in Sewing School such as Choosing a Machine, Basic Sewing Tools, and Choosing Fabric. For Embroidery information visit the Embroidery School page and learn How to Transfer Embroidery Patterns.

After that things get fun. Wendi’s designed the site so that people can start anywhere they want. Every pattern is designed with beginners in mind, and contains links to all the videos need to finish that particular project.

Free patterns are available on Wendi’s site or visit Wendi’s etsy store to see her full pattern line.
