Today I’m happy to introduce a very special guest post. It’s none other than Tanya Whelan from Grand Revival!. She’s here today to talk about her new book, Sew What You Love. She’s also going to tell us all about the freebies and giveaway celebrating the release of her book. Take it away, Tanya!
I’m so grateful to Craft Gossip for letting me talk about my new sewing book, Sew What You Love, the Easiest Prettiest Projects Ever today. The book includes 30 projects for bags, home, childrens items (toys, bedding, clothes) and adult clothing. And comes with three large pattern sheets in an envelope at the back of the book. The projects are really simple and will work for sewers at any level. Also included are techniques and tips for sewing with knits, using elastic thread and bag construction. Basically I really wanted to show projects that were simple, pretty, easily achievable and that people would want to use in their everyday life.
To celebrate the release of my book I have a few goodies to tell you about:
–first, there’s a free pdf download here of the Travel Checkers project from the book
-second, enter a comment here to enter to win a signed copy of the book and 6 fatquarters from my latest fabric collection Sugar Hill
-and finally, share the Amazon page for my book by clicking “share” on the right side of the Amazon page (under the shopping cart) on your facebook, twitter, blog or website and I’ll send you a free bag pattern download of your choice, the Monterey Market Bag, Metro Bag or Practical Bag. Just email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, let me know you shared and let me know which bag pattern you prefer and I’ll email you the download.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and creative 2012! Happy Sewing!!
