SINGER® - Brand Ambassador: Brandon Hayden

 

Meet Brandon

 

Brandon's relationship with sewing started in 2017. For the years prior, he would thrift a lot of his clothes and would have to leave really cool pieces behind because they were too big. Finally, he bought a Singer Heavy Duty 4432 to do some slight altering projects so he wouldn't have to leave those pieces that spoke to me behind at the thrift store. He remembers his first sewing project was a simple pillowcase just to see if he could recall the basics, and then he D.I.Y'd a crossbody bag from an old denim Carhartt jacket. His love for reworking grew from there. Several hundred Youtube videos later, he is the self-taught sewist running Happily Dressed, an online community dedicated
to self-expression through handmade clothing.


The growing sewing community on Instagram has definitely influenced his journey. There are so many wonderful, creative sewists out there sharing their processes, tips and tricks, and even their very own pdf patterns. @coolstitches, @the.social.fabric, and @ciscosews are a few of the creators that inspire him right now. His favorite projects to make are pants or simple sets. For him, fabric patterns really inspire what he makes. Whenever he sees an interesting fabric, he's always like "That would be a cool pair of pants!" So pants would definitely be his go-to sewing project!
