Music + Movies + Books

Two new books.


I have two lovely new books to encourage me to sew:
1. Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter
2. Bend-the-Rules Sewing by Amy Karol

I have so many projects around the house to work on, but not until I make at least one little bag with a fancy button that’s just for show.

    both wonderful books for various reasons. amy butler’s “in stitches” (chronicle) is also an inspiring read, if only to gawk at her fabrics. all of these amazing books and the resurgent interest in sewing en masse is making me want to go out and buy a simple machine. oh, and believe it or not, we even have some pretty cool books coming out in future months. i’ll send you some if you wish.

    I have Amy Butler’s book, too, but the projects are a bit too overwhelming for me right now! Lotta’s book is really the perfect thing for a lazy sewer like me. 🙂

    I would loooooove to see what you have coming out! Send away! I’m going to check out the Lark website right now…

    I just found your blog, so sorry for the late comment (seeing as you posted in August!), but Celine Dupuy’s book Simple Sewing with a French Twist is really lovely as well! I highly recommend it!

    Great blog by the way. 🙂
