Hey y'all! I'm Alida and I blog at Alida Makes. I'm a Southern girl and a lover of all things colorful. My blog focuses a lot on sewing for children because I have have 4 of them!
My husband is a doctor, and his schedule right now is pretty hectic, so sewing is my therapy. When all the children go to bed and the house is quiet I love to sip my wine and stitch away into the wee hours. Then in the morning I wake up and think "why didn't I go to bed?!" But I know the answer: because sewing is my passion.
My mother-in-law gave me a sewing machine 6 years ago and helped me make one pattern. After that I was hooked. I learned most of what I know from Youtube videos and blog tutorials (and learning the hard way…I'm pretty good at that.) I started my blog as a way to chronicle my projects, and it kind of spiraled from there. Life happened, and the blog has evolved a lot in the last 4 years. I wouldn't change a thing.
One more thing you should know about me: I love to change my hair. And sometimes I let my readers pick my next haircut. So come check out Alida Makes! It's a fun place to hang out!
