Hello, I’m Ilse from @sewsewilse and I’m so honored to be a member of the blog team from Sofilantjes! I’m a Belgian teacher, luckily married and I have two sons 16 and 21. Testing for the last seven years takes almost all my free time and is perfect to achieve new goals like new techniques and a full wardrobe 😉 I learn every day and am open to new things. Just like blogging for Sofilantjes. I’m ready to dive into these super fun patterns and make something beautiful out of it! I’ll see you soon!
Hi there! My name is Milou and I’m one of the bloggers for Sofilantjes this upcoming year! I live with my husband and two cats, in the Netherlands. This November we are expecting our first baby and we’re so excited! I think I’ll be sewing up some Sofilantjes baby patterns the upcoming months 🙂 My day job is teaching Forensic Biology at a local university, but when I’m home you’ll probably find me in my little sewing room. I’ve been sewing since I was a little kid and my mom taught me all the basics. I hope my blogs will help you get inspired to try Sofilantjes patterns, the new and the old. They are very well written and easy to follow and if you want to be adventurous, try hacking them to create even more possibilities, you’ll see some of that in my blogs too! You can also find me at https://aemilia-madebymilou.blogspot.com.
Happy sewing! Milou
Hi! My name is Cindy, I’m 30 years old and I live in the Netherlands with my husband and two kids, Ninthe and Milas. I’ve been sewing for something over 3 years now. I wanted to learn how to sew for my kids, to make them pretty and unique clothes and so I started taking sewing lessons. Actually, I wasn’t quite good at it and it really took me more than 2 years before I finally started to understand what I was doing.
Sofilantjes started my fire. After two years of struggling to sew with incomprehensible patterns from magazines with incomprehensible instructions, I found out there was a whole online sewing community with PDF patterns. My first ever PDF pattern was a Sofilantjes, the Vallis. What a game changer!! It was in this same period, a little over a year ago, that I wanted to share my experiences with others and started my own sewing blog “Miss Maakt”. Since then sewing really has grown into a passion, even a job, and I really do have Sofilantjes to thank for this.
I’m really quite pleased to be back here in the place where it all started and to get the chance to join the Sofilantjes blog team. I’m really looking forward to sharing my blogs with you and I hope you will enjoy them just as much!
My name is Johanna Ali and I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I started sewing 5 years ago when I saw a blogger on Facebook wearing this amazing skirt. I later found out she made it herself and if I wanted one, I would have to make it myself too. Everything that I’ve learned about sewing has been from YouTube and other sewing bloggers. I mainly sew for myself, but also enjoy making things for my son. I’m so excited to be a part of the Sofilantjes Blog team and I can’t wait to share my makes with you all. You can also find me at soveryjo.com.
Hi! I’m Karly from Paisley Roots. I started my stitching journey 15 years ago, shortly after the birth of my first child. Being tall (6′ to be exact) and coming from a creative family, I was always intrigued with making my own clothing. I started blogging 7 years ago, mostly to document my sewing journey, and it’s something I just love doing! I’m very excited to be a team member of Sofilantjes and can’t wait to share my sewing journey with you!
We are thrilled with our choices and can’t wait for you to see what they have in the works. Starting September 13th, every other week will be a new blog post (unless there is a pattern release) with something new for you. We hope you enjoy this first year with our blog team!
