I made a list of all the blog posts I would have done if I hadn’t lost my Wonder Woman headband last month. (Or is it a tiara?) It’s quite a list and I’m just not prepared to skip past “Go” and move on with things without spinning out a few re-caps. There are too many cool things I have missed sharing.
I'll start with Signature Styles. That's me on the cover of a new book. Newsworthy, right? I think so. In Jenny Doh’s latest title for Lark Crafts, she features 20 creative women and discusses each gal’s personal style as it relates to her work, her wardrobe and more. Each “stitcher” has designed a project for the book as well. For example, Megan Hunt includes instructions for an awesome little ruffled flower bracelet and Amy Tangerine shares techniques for "Crafty" tee shirt applique. It’s a jam-packed read, with lots of eye candy.
For my part, I designed this quick and kicky wristlet purse. It’s the ultimate easy-assemble purse pattern for customizing your wardrobe. With a design so simple to sew, why not prep the perfect purse for every outfit?
I’m really impressed with this book. I’m only about halfway through reading each of the features, but once I’ve devoured it entirely, I’m certain to keep it within easy reach for a quick visual escape. It was a pleasure to work with Jenny and of course, an honor to be included.
Other women featured in this new book include: Serena Thompson, Meg McElwee, Elsie Flannigan, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Kathy Cano-Murillo (who I just had dinner with last week), Betz White, Meg Allan Cole, Bari J. Ackerman, Erika & Monika Simmons, Kayte Terry, Megan Hunt, Sonya Nimri, Megan Nicolay, Ruth Singer, Sandy Stone, Bonzie & Ger, Teva Durham, and Amy Tangerine.
