Sewing has become a major part of my life over the last year and a half. While I did learn some basics from my mother many years ago-most of what I do has been self taught, using blogs, tutorials, books, etc.

Before I start a new project, I usually try to find several tutorials. I like to compare the tips and procedures. Some tutorials are explained in ways I understand quickly. Others...not so much. Some leave out important steps(especially for beginners) and some are all together wrong.
