So – word is out: Shelly and Karen from Patterns by Figgy’s have written a book – Sewing for Boys – which will be out in August this year. I am not only excited for my friends but even more so, because I designed some of the printed fabrics that are showcased in the book.
I have gotten a peek preview of the book and can only say: It’s gorgeous.
The photography is beautiful, the layout clean, the projects spot on. There will be a sewing project for everyone, the sewbie and the sewing fluent. There are wardrobe staples like the tee, and funky pants and dressy jackets and shirts.
What’s extremely exciting for me right now however, is the fact that I’ll be meeting up with the two gals tomorrow in Utah. It’s Quilt Market and I will dive into the quilting world. It’s kind of scary as I would have never considered myself a quilter – but after last month and all the QfQ sewing madness, I must have officially become one. And most of all, try to find a manufacturer who is interested in commercializing some of the prints featured in the book. If you want to see a couple of pics, you’ll have to hop over here.
Thanks to the awesome publisher (Wiley Publishing Inc.) who gave me access to all the beautiful photographs (shot by Studio Christie), I can present a polished little portfolio book. To the left a couple of handouts that I can leave with folks that are interested.
Wish me luck!
