Hi, It’s Minki Kim here today,
and I am so excited to announce the official start of the blog tour for my latest book,
Diary in Stitches.
My first book,
Sew Illustrated—35 Charming Fabric & Thread Designs (co-authored with my dear friend Kristin Esser), was written to teach my thread-drawing technique to people who are not familiar with the concept. I tried to
explain sewing illustration from A to Z, moving from simple projects like a coaster to
artful work like a family portrait. You can read more about it
is like a follow
Sew Illustrated readers.
For almost half a year, I drew one design a day and finished a
whole sketchbook. That sketchbook became sixty-five motifs and six patterns that show the variety of projects the reader can create. And of course,
Diary in Stitches has detailed instructions, with step-by-step pictures as well.
I also gathered all the frequently asked questions that are posed to me and answered them all in the Basic Techniques and
Each of designs has a close-up photo of
my sewing illustrations. All of the designs in the book are perfect for both
sewing illustration by machine or hand embroidery.
Lastly, there is a huge gallery of project ideas at
the end of book for even more inspiration.
I will keep creating projects using the
designs in the book on my Instagram to encourage you start creating your own
project today. I hope you enjoy following my feed
Here’s the full schedule for the
