LadyBossBlogger Course – Is It Worth It? (+ Giveaway!)

When I first started sharing my me-made garments on Instagram, I never imagined that I would eventually start a blog or even consider monetizing any of my work. I simply wanted a little corner of the world dedicated to the clothing that I have sewn, where I could dive into conversations with fellow sewists. But as time went on, I started to wonder if there was a way to use what I was already doing to make a little money to supplement the costs I encounter along the way… And now I am halfway through the LadyBossBlogger “Make Money as an Influencer” course online, and learning SO MUCH.

Special details that made them just a little extra? Check. (Here’s where you “check” it out on the blog!)

Another Recap – and another super late post! I’m excited to look back over my September / October makes today, halfway through December. I think next year, I’ll be switching to quarterly instead of bi-monthly recaps, because I just can’t seem to keep up!! Over the two months I’m recapping today, I made 12 new garments – my three favorites were the matching outfits I made for our family for our tiny girl’s first birthday! I did more “selfless” sewing over this period than usual, and also did a little scrap busting by sewing up a headband out of some leftover leggings fabric. I didn’t include any photos here, but that has probably been my most worn item from this period!
