I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We spent much of it on the beach enjoying a most beautiful day. We don't do turkey, but we certainly didn't starve. ;)
It was so surreal when I brought the mail in from the mailbox, opened the manilla envelope to see me in a book!
It's a book Just For You. Not your kids, but you. All types of projects, from clothes to accessories to phone covers. It's subtitled Selfish Sewing, but I don't think it's selfish to sew for one's self. It's important to do, in fact!
My project in the book is a faux leather belt, and you can see my silly fabric peeking bio picture. It's not quite as professional as everyone else, but that's how I am, right? ;) There are projects that just require measuring and there is also a sheet of patterns in the back for the more complex projects, something for everyone's skill level. :)It was so fun to flip it over and see my friends Delia, Disney and Jessica's names on the back with mine! And did you notice my matching nails with the dress? Serendipitous!
You can find it on Amazon and you can also win a copy right here! You can also win fabric for 4 projects over here.

I love seeing your posts about the beautiful clothes you make for yourself and your children. I also love when you post the different techniques you use on the clothes you make.ReplyDelete
I love tutorials on just about anything so I can learn and expand my skills. How about a tute on a doggie coat? I have a new dog this year and she gets so cold outside! I'd really like to make something special for her. Or, how about how to choose fabrics to make a quilt? I'd like to see how others choose colors and patterns w/o the use of a bundle of pre-cuts.ReplyDelete
I like how your personality comes out in what you write! You write with lots of joy, and enjoyment of life. I can't think of anything in particular I think is missing. For me, the tone of your writing is more important than the content, and you've got both! email@example.comReplyDelete
I enjoy everything you do, but especially love when you sew.ReplyDelete
Your photography is also divine!
