When I started this blog it was to be a “business blog”, but it seems the business end of it has taken a back seat to my personal life and the amazing island I live on. Since the name of the blog is Sew Me Hawaii, people probably wonder what that’s all about…or not.
I love to sew. I love sewing for hula halau and I love making items using the beautiful Hawaiian print fabrics. Today I spent a couple of hours making an adorable little dress for my shop. I then posted a picture of the little dress to Facebook, to my Pinterest board, to my Etsy shop, but I hadn’t even thought of posting a picture in my blog. My little “sewing studio” is not far from the cottage. It’s 9×11 ft. and is crammed to the gills with sewing supplies, fabric, finished skirts, dress, tops, gifts, etc. My cutting table shown is always piled with fabric, pins, an iron. A large box of fabric takes up one end. My sewing table is a little less crowded. A sewing machine, a serger, and my CD player/radio, oh and a tower fan. Since my cottage is only 400 sq. ft. there was no way for me to set up an area within the house, so we were lucky to have this little storage building.
There is nothing like living in Hawai’i so I’m sure my journey through these amazing islands will continue, however, now and again, I will drop a new shop item into my posts…like this sweet little dress.
