Anshu from Blooms and Bugs joins us next with a Stars + Stripes sundress, perfect for hot summer days! First learn more about Anshu and her sewing…
Hello there, this is Anshu from Blooms and Bugs. I feel so honored and privileged to be a guest on Sew Mama Sew. I have loved reading inspiring articles and beautiful projects here for a long time. So now that I am guest posting here, I feel kind of awed and proud at the same time to join the club of these highly respected bloggers. These are the blogs I have followed for years and learned so much from. I hope my post also inspires you in some way.
I was introduced to the fascinating world of sewing by my aunt when I was seven and I fell in love immediately. I have been sewing on and off ever since. A demanding career in a highly competitive field (I work as a hardware Engineer in my day job) meant that I couldn’t sew as much as I wanted to. For years I didn’t even touch the sewing machine.
However, the birth of my daughter changed all that. I started off by sewing a couple of dresses for her during my maternity leave. Before I knew it, I was sewing wash clothes, diapers, pants and everything imaginable for her. By the time she turned two, I had an Etsy store and also a sewing blog. It has been an immensely satisfying and rewarding journey. I feel that there is something therapeutic about sewing those neat rows of tiny stitches on the fabric.
The picture above is from the flower girl collection that I have just launched in my Blooms and Bugs Etsy store. It has tutu dresses and coordinating accessories for little girls.
It has been a fun journey so far and I am learning something new each day.
