  3. I revisit blogs that show crafty things that are my style or that I look up to (i.e. they are way better than me). I guess whatever I find inspiring.

  4. What makes me return to a blog? Gorgeous photos of things I’d love to make, or spaces in which I’d love to create. I visit blogs for inspiration, helpful tips, and just plain eye candy (Pinterest is wise, since it focuses on this exact concept)

    Reply
  5. I like a sewing blog that is easy to search, if they have tutorials/information. If it’s a personal sewing blog, then I like close up pictures and links/descriptions of how something was made or information/review about the pattern.

  6. Why revisit a blog? I love seeing quilts as well as small projects, with tutorials occasionally. When the pictures are bright and sharp and I can actually see what has been made I’m a happy camper! blessings, marlene

  7. I like blogs that show off new patterns (freebies, tutorials or ones that I can buy) – it really helps me decide to make something if I get to see lots of pretty pictures of a completed project.

  8. Beautiful clutch! What makes me revisit a blog? For craft blogs, the writer has to create things that appeal to me and find interesting ways to write about them. I also have to feel inspired by the projects I see there.

  9. I come back to blogs that have lots of tutorials and pictures I want to come back to! I save a lot of ideas on Pinterest, and will revisit them from time to time to see what other great ideas the blogger has come up with since then!

  10. First the blog has to be about something that interests me, such as quilting, sewing, embroidery, sometimes cooking or gardening. Then, the two things that tend to keep me coming back are humor and the blog also sharing some of the personal life of the blogger. I also like it when the blogger shares about their pets and if the blog has tutorials of the kinds of things I might make. Unfortunately many tutorials are simplistic, and that is a big turn-off for me.

  15. I like a really clean uncluttered look, with good quality photos. I like to see that a blogger has a cohesive style and good sewing technique. I also like to see that they have other interests – design, children, screen printing, green living, etc.

  16. What a pretty bag! I’ve actually thinking about making something in that size (smaller than my usual giant purse. My revisiting of blogs is usually based on the type of projects shared and the writing style. Keep up the great work!

    Reply
  17. Pictures and process comments make me revisit blogs. I love reading about HOw other are sewing projects together…not necessarily a tutorial, but the process you used to create…and pictures. I learned everything I know about sewing from bloggers and I owe the blogging community for this love of charitable sewing. And I LOVE sewing purses! Your is so darn cute!

  18. I guess I revisit blogs for two reasons. First, because I like what they make and it inspires my own projects. Second, because I enjoy the writer’s voice and simply feel connected to them. Thanks!

  22. I revisit blogs when what is created inspires me to create myself. Also I enjoy the community of like minded individuals.

  23. I find that when people include aspects of their own life in their creative blogs that makes it more interesting. There is one blog I love called “Sew and Sow Farm” and she lives on a farm (which I never have so it’s new to me). So she has interesting farm animal stories mixed in with her sewing projects and it is often entertaining to read.

    Reply
  24. I love tutorials on sewing blogs but I also like to read about family life and other family activities as it gives me ideas for my own family.

    Reply
  25. I like it when a blog includes real life stuff as well as all things sewing related. I guess I just like to know that the blog is by a real person and not someone seemingly perfect. 🙂

  26. I love blogs that share new patterns & fabrics. It’s always fun to find a great, new patterns that others have tried & like.

    Reply
  27. I’m more likely to revisit a blog that posts lots of photos, especially if the writer’s style is similar to my own 🙂

    Reply
  28. Lots of photos is always a good thing, especially ones that have been taken well with attention to details (i.e. you can actually see details!) and are a good size (so you don’t have to click on them to make them larger to see them properly).

  29. That pink peony bag is soooo cute! I would love to enter to win it! I usually will revisit blogs where the sewer (blogger?) makes items I am interested in making myself. I like to look for new ideas for sewing a pattern I current own or some cute twist to make my stuff more detailed. More often then not, I usually just skim the pictures and move on. If there is an pattern I am thinking of buying I might read someones notes.

  30. I don’t have much time these days for browsing blogs, so onces that feature well executed items or inspiring ideas and tutorials. Thanks for the chance, this is a sweet wee purse. 🙂

    Reply
  31. I find I come back to blogs where I’ve gotten to “know” the authors; little bits about their life, personality, etc., I find as important as content; I guess you could say the human interest element. I read a knitting blog even though I have no interesting in knitting because I like the woman who writes it and enjoy hearing how she’s getting on.

    Reply
  32. I like blogs that are well-written (poor writing is really hard for me to read), with nice photos but not tons and tons of them, and projects I like.

    Reply
  33. I love blogs that have interesting projects – especially tutorials that I can try out. Also when bloggers give us a little peek into their personal lives.

    Reply
  34. What a cute bag! I revisit blogs when I like the projects people are posting, when they inspire me, or when I catch a particularly thoughtful post that resonates.

    Reply
  35. I love a blog that has a mix of posts: a bit of personal, a bit of ‘show and tell’ of things you have made and a bit of tutorials to show us how to make things. If its all one thing it can get boring.

    Reply
  36. I love seeing a variety of sewing like quilting, bags, garments, etc. Lots of pictures, and clear tutuorials too. Love the colour of this clutch! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Reply
  37. Cute! I tend to revisit blogs when I see things that I want to make, or techniques that I want to try out for myself.

    Reply
  38. I enjoy pretty pictures on a blog and also a blogger who writes in an authentic voice. I love it when you read a blog and feel like you really know the person at the other side!

    Reply
  39. Something uniquely crafted will make me visit a blog for the first time, and more specifically if there is a tutorial on how to do something.
    A second visit is warranted if the first visit has a well written blog and great photos to accompany the information conveyed.

    Reply
  40. I revisit a blog when there are ton of awesome things to look at. I love free tutorials, or patterns, I will always bookmark or follow a blog with lots of great tutorials, pictures, and ideas.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  41. I think it is a balance for me I love finding inspiration and seeing things I might attempt or placed to visit but probably what draws me back is the ‘blog voice’ of the blogger and how they come across.

    Reply
  42. I like reading tutorials the most, but I’ll revisit a blog when it has interesting stories, pictures and finished projects.

    Reply
  43. What brings me back to a blog are tutorials and clear, colorful photos. I also like to hear about the blogger’s life now and then.

    Reply
  44. I like great photographs, recent projects, and tips to alter patterns to make the item or garment unique and well-fitting. But great photographs are a must.

    Reply
  45. I come back to blogs that I have a common interest in. Like yours. I love to reuse and upcycle. I’ll be back. Thanks for the chance.

  46. I revisit blogs which feature the writers own work and clear photos. Anything from sewing to drawing and painting. I mostly visit craft blogs to be inspired and enjoy the work of others, I don’t tend to read lifestyle blogs but that’s just my preference. 🙂

    Reply
  47. Projects I enjoy and may want to make, conversational tone, not just sales pitches/marketing speak, some life talk but mostly crafting. Thanks!

    Reply
  48. I follow those blogs that stimulate me in multiple ways — fun quilts and projects, humor, clever writing, sidetracks like where an idea came from or the thoughts you have while quilting. I have been following you for some time, now.

    Reply
  49. BTW, I meant to mention in my post that I love your pink peony bag, and in fact linked someone to that pattern who mentioned making bags to compliment jackets she had made for her mother and herself. This isn’t a separate comment, but should have been part of my first one. Too bad I don’t Tweet for the extra chance.

    Reply
  50. I will revisit a blog if I feel connected with the writer. I like photos, but kept concise, and approachable writing. Nothing too showy or loud. Comfortable, like I feel I could be friends with them or enjoy a long conversation with them.

    Reply
  51. I enjoy inspiring blogs, blogs with great pictures of sharing projects or tutorials! I also love it when I can see the personality of the blogger through their writing.

    Reply
  52. I like blogs that have a similar style to my own – it is where I derive my inspiration from. I also like following a project through start to end and hearing about all the fiddly bits and frustrations along the way!

    Reply
  53. PICTURES! I also come back if you can get a sense of who the writer is through the posts.. tutorials are great along with pics..but personality makes it even better.

    Reply
  54. I like to visit blogs of quilters that make quilts that are in the style that I like and use colour the way I like. This is a very pretty bag with lovely fabric thanks for the chance to win it.

    Reply
  55. I come back to blogs when I like the style of person writing them and when they post tutorials or reviews on things that interest and inspire me.

    Reply
  56. I bookmark a blog if I come across an interesting project. Photos of great fabric/projects also help. I’m going to bookmark your page because I’d like to take a look at your picnic blanket tutorial when I have more time. I’ve got a ton of t-shirts that I no longer wear but that are too worn to give away. And I do need a picnic blanket… Thanks!
