Hi Lovely Fashionistas!

My very first blog post, I am so excited!!! I have dreamed and schemed for a very long time about this day so I am most humbled and thankful.

Let me introduce myself. I am Karen Bakia and I live in Minneapolis MN (Go Vikings). I am originally from Cameroon in West-Central Africa and I love fashion and all creative arts. I started learning to sew about 8 months ago. I tried to get a dress made for myself and was floored by how much it would cost to make clothing from all the beautiful Ankara fabric I had at home. I have since become a sew-enthusiast and would love to share my journey through this media which I find very rewarding. I have mostly learned through YouTube videos and the blogs of some amazing seamstresses who share their art. I have a long way to go before I can truly call myself an accomplished tailor, but so far I can say this art is so rewarding and the possibilities are endless.

Welcome to my journey and I hope I can make a positive contribution to another’s craft like so many others have done for me!

Peace love and kisses πŸ™‚

  1. Congrats Karen. I have similar loves but spend more time on sewing blogs, Patternreview and Craftsy than I do making anything 😏. Here’s wishing that you enjoy the journey. Looking forward to reading more from you.

  2. Enjoy the journey! Although I don’t sew a lot of clothing I do sew quite often. I love it. β™‘ I give my projects as gifts, make around the house items, and it’s just plain fun!! I will be back to see what you are up to. Congratulations on starting your blog. Blogging is such fun also. You meet so many interesting people- some who share your interests and many that have different interests but it is all fabulous. I have made a lot of good friends in the last few years that I have been blogging. Happy blogging!
