Stay The Fuck Home The Podcast Edition

I love me a good podcast and am a huge fan of both Old Time Radio and True Crime podcasts. I find that listening to them keeps me focused on something other than what is going on around you. I recently did a post asking what people’s favourite podcasts are. Here is a list!

Stay The Fuck Home The Sewing Edition

I’ve always been a strong believer that there are certain skills that we all should have. Sewing, knitting, how to grow food, how to cook/bake, how to start a fire and how to use a hammer and nail. Sadly, these aren’t skills that are regularly taught any longer. I was fortunate to either learn them at home or in school. I really wish they still have shop and home ec in school! However and thanks to YouTube, you can still learn all of those things, especially sewing.

Below are a few of my favourite YouTube channels. Check them out and give sewing a try.

Gertie is by far my favourite pattern maker. You can buy her sewing patterns here. {including PDF} Once you do, she has sewing tutorials for a bunch of them. In the end you will have a gorgeous garment to wear.

Evelyn Wood is a sewing genius. On her channel you will not only learn sewing basics, you will also learn how to refashion thrifted items!

A Vintage Vanity is a lot of fun. Her channel is a mix of sewing and other vintage things such as hair and other craft tutorials.

Liz Von Villas is another fun channel. Yes… I think you are seeing a theme here. I sew vintage reproduction!
