About me


August 27th, 2009 was the day that I first slouched in front of a sewing machine and sewed two pieces of calico together with a straight stitch. From that moment I fell in love with all things sewing and fabric and I spend my waking hours fantasising about what I'm going to make next.

Me wearing my first ever Julia-made dress, on the day when I first got my own sewing machine! Look at the happiness!

I live in Melbourne, Australia and work a '9-5'. When I'm not sewing like a crazy lady, or hyperventilating in fabric stores, I like to salsa dance, read and be merry.

I married a spunk of a man back in October 2011 who supports my sewing craziness and knows how to use a seam ripper! True story! (Possibly also the moment I knew I was head over heals in love). His name is Robin and I'm working on convincing him to change his name to 'Robin Bobbin'. Because who doesn't love a name that rhymes!

Yes, I am wearing an awesome David Bowie t-shirt.


I created this blog to document my sewing obsession journey and to create an environment where I can mingle with other like minded sewing enthusiasts sharing tips, knowledge and inspirations.

I love having a good old chat, so if you have any questions please feel free to email me at julia@juliabobbin.com
