detail shotOh, hello there.

My name is Elle.  I live in Chicago, IL with my boyfriend, a couple of roommates and a black cat who hates everything. I dabble in a lot of different hobbies.  This is my little sewing blergh.

My mom is one of those superhero-type people who can sew anything, mend anything, grow anything, draft a perfect pattern for baby shoes, embroider, knit, crochet and still whip up a pie crust from scratch with a minimum of swearing. So, of course, when she tried to teach me all these skills as a child I rolled my eyes and waited for the first chance to run away from the serger and forget everything I had just learned.  As soon as I hit adulthood and became interested in making things for myself, I immediately regretted not having paid close enough attention the first time.

This blog documents my attempts to recapture some of that knowledge.  It helps that my mom is only a phone call away.

To contact me, shoot me an email at elle.s.bryan@gmail.com.  I’d love to hear from you!
