What I’ve learnt from Mie

Surprise Mie!

Ok let me start from the beginning.

A few months ago I was making dinner and feeling grateful for being friends with Mie the fabulous mind, impeccable taste and seamstress extraordinaire behind Sewing Like Mad. You see every time I have a question/doubt regarding sewing I always ask her and she’s always super kind to share her knowledge, that had probably been the case on that particular day.

Having Mie in my life also means that every time I try to take the fast sloppy lane on my sewing I imagine her slapping me and saying “Oh no you won’t!”. Bahahah Remember that image where Batman is slapping Robin? Hahahah


Yep that’s how I imagine it, except Mie is much more gentle and a million times prettier than Batman. 😉 Hehehe Ok seriously now, my sewing improved tons just by paying attention to what she says and advices. Mie is the kindest and always helps me whenever I need, and I know this is valid for many other people so in that moment, while making dinner, it struck me that we should make her a surprise. A surprise to thank her and let her know how much we appreciate her amazing creations, perfect tutorials, super cool tips, and most of all her kindness in sharing and being so helpful. ❤

So I talked about this with my friend Celina from Petit à Petit and Family and we thought it would be cool to make a video talking about all the cool things we learnt from Mie. We asked some incredible ladies to  join us in this surprise and here’s the result. A good spirited video kindly and beautifully put together by Celina. ❤ I wish I could see Mie’s face right now… heheh Can you take a photo Mie? heheh ❤
