About this blog

Welcome to my blog!

I am a fashion designer and tailor and started this blog in 2011 with the main focus on sewing tutorials. You find 5.5 years worth of tutorials on this site and if you have any request for a sewing-, knitting-, crafting-, patternmaking-tutorial, please do not hesitate to ask!!!

Nonetheless, since teaching to sew is now my daily work, I lost some of my excitement to post new tutorials regularly. So I broadened the focus to

  • adventures: travels by bike, trains, feet, and what pieces of the world I (re)discover, sometimes just around the corner, sometimes farther away
  • textiles: of course I am still crafting in my free time, so you’ll see projects I am working on and finished, sewing, knitting, crocheting, weaving and whatever else comes to mind
  • pictures: I am still in love with analog photography, it helps me to see the small wonders in the world around me

English isn’t my native language, so please excuse any mistakes I’ll probably make. I hope you will still be able to understand me. I chose to do this blog in English because it is the language that most people learn or have to learn earlier or later in their life all over the world. My native language is German, I also know some Spanish and Danish. So if you have problems (like me sometimes) with special sewing words, look into my dictionary I’ll write down translations for them. If you don’t understand anything feel free to ask.

If you have weird links in your comments or try to spam, my anti-spam will delete the most from the start and if not I will delete it. Also, any comments using bad words or swearing or are in a foreign language will be deleted, be nice and polite and I look forward to nice discussions with you!

all the best

  1. Hi TailorFairy. I’m in love with your site. I’m sure I’m going to pick up a lot of useful sewing tips and ideas here. May I link your blog to mine?

  2. What a fun blog. I think there can never be enough sewing tutorials/pages/blogs out there!
    Thanks for liking my post, it means a lot to a first timer!

  3. Hi Tailor Fairy! My daughter would love to sew her own clothes, but we are having a lot of trouble adjusting clothes for a bust that is proportionally larger than the body the patterns are made for. Can you help us learn how to make these adjustments?

  4. Thank you for liking my post about My First Sewing Project. What an honor from someone like you! I wish I had discovered your blog even before I started. Then my stitches would probably not have been so bad… haha. But I’m glad you found me. I’m so blessed! May I check in here some time? I need all the help I can get and keep my excitement going! : )

  5. This is a wonderful website, as a beginner sewer your lessons are really useful, thank you!

    • I would like to help with that, but that would be a little tricky. Sewing machines are all very similar, but also all different, so if I wanted to explain your sewing machine, I would need exactly the same machine. So its probably best you rely on your manual for that. 😉

I love to read your comments
