This is a London-based sewing and craft blog by a self-taught enthusiast. I have been chopping and stitching since a young age, but never with any particular focus. I've started this to keep track of some new projects I've been dreaming up!

You won't find many arty photos of London architecture... just over-zealous (and occasionally misguided) forays into the world of dressmaking and craft.

I would love to hear from you, particularly if you're a bit of and old hand and could give me a tip or two! Get in touch on nowtrythisblog [at] gmail [dot] com or via social media.
