Hey there!

Just looking for suggestions on good blogs to follow if I'm looking for pretty pictures and some off-beat projects.

Who do you follow?

Thanks =D

It's probably not what you're looking for, but my favorite sewing-related blog is sarah in nyc's. Look at the list of post tags down the right side of the page to find topics you're interested in. The only other sewing blog I look at with anything approaching regularity would be Fehr Trade, by craftster user squirrellypoo. We have wildly different tastes in clothing, but I like seeing the pictures of her houseboat and she has some useful tutorials, including one on the best method for tracing patterns I've ever seen. Another craftster user, psycho sue, has a blog with pretty good instructional videos you might like.

Wow, I have so many! I'll just list a few of the ones that I read with some regularity. I love love love Adventures in Dressmaking. V and Co. has a good mix of sewing and home decor craftiness. Dog under my desk has some cute pouches and doggie accessories. Sweet Verbena has a variety of wonderful things, sewing and non-sewing related (spoonable smoothie recipe YUM Tongue). No Big Dill has quite a few tutorials, a lot of them for children's clothing. Megan Nielsen has great tutorials and tips. She also has a separate DIY maternity site. iCandy Handmade has a good variety of sewing tutorials(a lot of recons), with other interesting things sprinkled in. I've gotten a lot of great ideas from Shona Stitches. Her posts are a fun read and her projects are so cute. There lots of great tips onYou Sew Girl. I hope these are helpful.
