Hello! Hello! My name is Angie Wilson, and I’m the author of Fussy Cutters Club. I’m supposed to tell you a little bit about why I love my book, Fussy Cutters Club, but to be completely honest I’m not sure I can adequately convey why I love it. I have the same problem when someone asks me to tell them why I love my family and friends. I usually look at the ground sheepishly, try to think of something profound to say and then respond with, “I just do.” But today I’ll try to break the habit of a lifetime and put into words why I love something… here goes…
When I wrote Fussy Cutters Club, I wanted to capture all the things I love about creating with fabric. I wanted to share my excitement and passion for having fun with fabrics and letting people get to know who I am through my color and print choices. I wanted to inspire others to embrace the fabrics they love, not be swayed by popular opinions about what they should like, and create things that make them happy. I wanted to empower people to mix and match fabrics and colors instead of relying on premade bundles and using designer collections.
Fussy Cutters Club is a snapshot of where I’m at in my creative journey. It’s a reference book on how I work, what I think about when I create, and a guide for helping others tap into what makes them unique and how they can inject their personality into their work. I’ve designed fourteen projects that range in skill level to help walk people through the process of thinking about fussy cutting when they’re creating. For me, Fussy Cutters Club isn’t a project-driven book, it’s a book about changing the way you think about the potential in your fabrics. The projects are awesome (humble, much?), but their purpose is to help you take the theory and put it into practice, grow in confidence, and then go out there and make your own brand of creative magic.
To celebrate the launch of Fussy Cutters Club I’ve hit up some of my favorite bloggers to share the projects they’ve made from the book. These are the people that were there for me when I was writing the book and who have completely different styles from mine. I wanted to share this experience with them because they shared their knowledge, time and good humor while I was going through the process of creating Fussy Cutters Club.
I’m excited to see what they’ve all made because we are all different and have different fabric loves. I really wanted the blog hop to help show you that you don’t need to use the fabrics I’ve used, you can use whatever you love and make something great. I can’t wait to share my baby with you all and maybe introduce you to some new creatives to fall in love with!
