Sky Turtle is a project focused on sewing and the do it yourself movement. It is an effort to promote anti-consumerism and start conversations about reducing waste by buying less and also a pretext for talking about personal development and self expression through learning and making.
Sky Turtle is a blog dedicated to people who want to learn how to draft their own patterns and sew their own clothes. It is a project born from the author’s passion for making things, manipulating fabric and playing with volumes.
The author of this blog grew up seeing one grandmother sewing and the other crocheting and knitting magical things. She learned the basics from them and everything else from the Great Interwebs (this is why she now posts tutorials on her blog as often as she can).
She also learned a lot from many broken needles and metres and metres of ruined fabric. She’s still learning and experimenting with fabric and yarn. Hooray!
Her real name is Ina and in her other life she is a copywriter junkie, web geek and communications
