The Cucicucicoo sewing and craft website is back better than ever with a brand new design, making it easy to find all the free tutorials, sewing course and patterns! Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite Hello all, and welcome back to the new and improved Cucicucicoo sewing and craft website!

I’d been thinking about creating a new design for Cucicucicoo for a while, with the intention of making it easier for readers to find what they’re looking for without having to search through long menus of categories and subcategories. I wanted to create an updated, yet simple, look with a more visual navigation.

So I’m excited that the new website is now finally up and running! Let me take you on a little tour to show you what’s new!

The Home Page

The Cucicucicoo sewing and craft website is back better than ever with a brand new design, making it easy to find all the free tutorials, sewing course and patterns! Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite The new homepage starts off pretty similar to the old one, with changing images that will bring you to some of the most popular content on Cucicucicoo in a click.

Above those images is the menu that will bring you to the Cucicucicoo Patterns shop, the Blog page (more about that in a minute!) and the About page (which I will be updating soon!). In addition, you can switch language or search for specific keywords within the website.

Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite The main changes begin after that. There is a special visual menu with the four main categories of Cucicucicoo (Tutorials, Sewing, Crafting and Natural Living) that you can click on. Under that you will see a series of images for each subcategory that you can click on to find all the pertinent posts.

So, for example, let’s say you’re looking for repurposing tutorials. Click on “Tutorials” on the top, and then on the “Repurposing” button below. Easy peasy!

Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite Below this visual category menu you’ll find the most recent blog posts. You can click on any of these posts to continue reading them, or click on the “Go to Blog” button below those (or the “Blog” button at the very top of the page) to read more posts in the Blog page.

The Blog Page

Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite You can either browse categories or read all blog posts in order in the Blog page. At the top of the page you’ll find a thumbnail image for each of the four main categories. Click on one to see all the subcategories and posts in that category. If you just want to browse the posts independent of their category, just scroll down the page.

The Category Pages

Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite Each Category page starts off with a brief description of what type of posts you’ll find. If it’s a main category, you will also see thumbnail images of the subcategories to click on, if you so wish. Then all you need to do is choose the post that you want to find out more about!

The Shop

Check it out today! www.cucicucicoo.com #sewingwebsite #craftwebsite The Cucicucicoo Patterns shop is also slightly different. Below the welcome message, which explains the ideals behind my patterns, you can find the patterns themselves. If you want to browse pattern categories, just look on the sidebar to the right and click on any category.

I am so excited about this new look, not only because I felt like the website needed a new feel, but also to make my readers’ experience more enjoyable and to help them find their way around this sewing and craft website that has many years’ worth of great tutorials and ideas!

So, what do you think about this new design? Love it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments below!

By the way, I have been much less present on the blog, as well as the newsletter and social media, not only because of this redesign, but also because of a series of difficulties in my personal life. It has been a particularly strange and complicated moment for our family, and I am spending more time focusing on myself, my family and my loved ones than I usually do. So if you less activity than usual, don’t worry, because I will come back. It just probably means that the people in my life (myself included!) have needed more attention than usual from me. After all, the priority in life are those we love, is it not?

And get ready, because Cucicucicoo will be back next week with the first of a whole bunch of new holiday themed tutorials! I can’t wait to share them with you! See you soon!

  1. Grazie Lisa:bravissima! La ricerca risulta facilitata….
    Ci mancavi, bentornata e resisti alle difficoltà (anche per me è un periodo difficilotto….ma noi donne sappiamo corazzarci….)

    • Donatella, mi fa tanto piacere sentire che è facilitata! Ma mi dispiace tanto sentire che anche per te è un momentaccio. Purtroppo la vita è così e dobbiamo capire come trasformare i disagi in crescita personale. è difficile, difficilissimo, ma ce la dobbiamo fare!!

  2. Mi chiedevo giusto dove fossi finita. Io ti seguo tramite newsletter e cominciavo a pensare di aver cancellato qualcosa per sbaglio, poi ho visto che non c’erano post nemmeno sul blog e ho capito che non era colpa mia. Mi spiace per i problemi a casa, spero che si risolva al più presto e che tu non perda il tuo bel sorriso.
    Le novità del sito mi piacciono, ora continuo a curiosare qua e là. Bentornata intanto.

    • Che carina che sei, Elle, che mi hai pensato durante questa assenza! Il sorriso c’è, anche se a volte fa un po’ di fatica. Ma, come va il detto, anche questo passerà. Grazie e un abbraccio!

  3. Grazie! Questo nuovo look del sito mi piace molto! Bravissima! Ti faccio un in bocca a lupo grande grande per i tuoi impegni personali! Un saluto alla prossima news!

  4. Grazie. Ben tornata, cominciavo a preoccuparmi.
    Spero che i tuoi problemi personali si risolvano ma non disperare.
    Il sorriso è il miglior antidoto ai problemi.
    A PRESTO.

    • Parole sagge, Luisa! è vero che il sorriso è l’antidoto migliore, e un punto di vista positivo. A volte, purtroppo, si dimentica di questa saggezza ed è davvero duro. Grazie per avermi pensato e un abbraccio!

  5. Hi Lisa, we missed your cool posts, now is more clear and easy, thanks for the improvements.
    I hope your personal problems will soon disappear.
    Receive my warm greetings 😉

    • Thank you so much, Nuria! Glad that the navigation on the site is now more clear for you! And thank you also for your thoughts about my personal problems. I doubt that they will disappear soon, but hopefully I will soon be able to deal with them better!

  6. carissima Lisa! complimenti per il nuovo look! È bellissimo e, a prima vista, facilissimo da fruire 😉
    speriamo che questo periodo passi presto, ma prenditi tutto il tempo di cui hai bisogno per te e per i tuoi cari… noi saremo qui ad aspettarti (sicura di parlare a nome di tutti i tuoi followers)
    un caro, affettuoso e forte abbraccio..
    :*

  7. Wonderful new website design! I appreciate the time and effort you put into this, since it will make it much easier for me to cruise around and find what I’m looking for in the wealth of great stuff you offer. I wish you strength and peace as you navigate the difficulties you’re facing. 🙂

    • I’m so glad to hear that it’ll be easier for you to find everything, Carol! And thank you so much for your wishes of strength and peace, which are exactly the two things that I need the most right now!

  8. Your fresh design looks great, Lisa! Simplified navigation is so helpful for readers to really focus on their favorite topics. Cheers to you and best wishes for all life’s little complications.

    • Thanks, Ellen! I realized that I have so much on this website that it’s pretty easy for readers to get lost or not even realize things that are there. So I am hoping that the changes will be helpful! Thank you also for your well wishes! 🙂
