Hello, everyone! Hope you’re having lovely Thursdays! Here in NYC it is rainy and grey– a perfect day to stay home cuddled up with a book! Luckily Santa was good to me this year and I received a few sew-y books for Christmas!
My sister found this on my Amazon wish list, and boy, does it look fun! Stefanie Lincecum uses the rub-off method, so in theory, I can copy favorite clothes (how many times have you wished that you’d bought a second version of your favorite piece of clothing once it started to wear out?)! I can’t wait to give this a try! Thanks, Brenna!
Brenna also gave me this book, and it’s total eye candy! There are so many cute patterns in here, but the real treat is seeing all the beautiful Liberty prints on display! How sweet is that apron on the cover?!
OK, this is a little bit funny, but this book was a gift… from my 40 year-old, preppy, male boss! I guess everyone at work realizes what a sewing geek I am! This book is actually amazing– I’ve learned so much from it! I couldn’t believe how many techniques I’ve used without understanding why I needed to use them… I’m really excited to learn more!
Alright, I know that I already treated myself to the Colette and BurdaStyle books in November and December, but after Minnado and Nettie recommended this book, I DESPERATELY needed it to work on my 2012 goal of becoming comfortable working with knits:
And I couldn’t qualify for Super Saver Shipping on Amazon without buying a second book, so I really HAD to have this one, too!
I’m out of control! But it really is lucky that I have so much great reading material, research material, even, on such a gross day! I’m practically doing homework!
How about you guys? What are you reading these days? Do you have any favorite sewing resources?
SIDENOTE— I was having some issues today trying to comment on Blogspot blogs, so there are a few of you whose posts I tried to comment on, but couldn’t. 😦
