Sew Much Love, Mary is a blog that features modest fashion, original refashioned designs, sewing projects, and bible devotionals. When I first started this blog, I had no idea what direction I wanted to go with it. All I knew was that I wanted to spread modesty and my refashioned projects. I didn't even know how to start a blog. The basic HTML that I knew was from my Myspace days, when I loved to edit my profile in unique and different ways. With my first job, I bought myself a camera and without any knowledge, began snapping photos. It's definitely been a learning experience, and I'm still learning new things everyday. I created this space to develop my talents, begin the dream of having my own business, and ultimately spread His Word.
Hello! I'm Mary, the one behind Sew Much Love, Mary. A little bit about me...
I'm 22 years old, married to my middle school sweetheart, and I'm an only child. I am a graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with a degree in Merchandise Product Development. I live in a small California town and I love to attend church. My biggest dream is to own my very own boutique. Ever since I was a little girl, I would pretend to have different businesses. Out of my many "business ventures," my favorite were: a shoe store, a clothing store operated by my Bratz dolls, and a hotel which I would operate whenever my cousins were visiting.
I first fell in love with refashioning back I began to start dressing modestly. I would buy clothing from the thrift store, and added sleeves or added length to them. This is when I realized it was really fun to create new designs out of old ones. I loved seeing the potential in something that everyone else wanted to throw out. Another one of my passions is sewing. My most recent creative venture is hand lettering. I'm nowhere near as good as I'd like to be, but I'm going to keep on practicing. I combined everything I love to do into one blog: sewing, style, and scripture.
A few of my favorite things:
- chocolate & sweets
- sweet iced tea
- anything that sparkles
- sunny days
- cute stationary
- good memories
