I wanted to tell you about my friend Amy’s new book. Bless her heart, she sent one to me and asked me to make something……I think it’s so cute that she thinks I’ve capable of making these amazing things. HA! But I am capable of showing those of you who CAN and who are willing to try this amazing book. Amy is so talented, you can’t go wrong with any of her books. Yes, she has a few, but this is her newest one.
At the end of this blog tour…..there is a BIG giveaway! Fabric and Books. Be sure to enter. But today, I’m also giving away a great gift package. Keep reading.
Here’s a little about the book from Indygo Junction:
Embellish your world with embroidery designs from Indygo Junction’s Stitched Style. You’ll find 20 fashion oriented projects, featuring 65 unique hand embroidery designs, with over 100 styles and sizes to trace or transfer. The projects feature Crossroads Denim by Amy Barickman, as well as repurposed denim. Bring new life to ready made jeans, jackets purses and totes with a needle and thread. Or create your own one of a kind item from scratch! Never embroidered before? No worries, our materials guide, detailed trace and transfer instructions and stitch dictionary will tell you all you need to know to add some Stitched Style to your life.
The designs featured in Stitched Style were inspired by Amy Barickman’s SoHo Bandana fabric collection with Red Rooster. A longtime collector of vintage bandanas, Amy took those classic designs and updated them for today. Using contemporary colors and stylized designs, bandana has never looked so fresh and fun.
