Sew Illustrated Blog Tour Kickoff!
Posted by Minki Kim and Kristin Esser on Aug 15th 2016
Hi Everyone! We are thrilled to be kicking off the blog tour for our book Sew Illustrated: 35 Charming Fabric & Thread Designs: 16 Zakka Projects here on the C&T blog. We’ve lined up an all-star group of designers/bloggers to share the projects they have chosen to make from the book. We are on the edge of our seats to see what they have created.
The cornerstone technique of the book is called sewing illustration. It is quick to learn, fun to do, and a perfect way to embellish all kinds of sewing projects. Sew Illustrated includes 16 Zakka projects to show off the sewing illustration designs—but the beauty is that you can mix and match them to come up with endless combinations. And that’s just the beginning! You can also use your own drawings or your child’s drawings to create projects that will become family treasures.
We had such fun creating this book and hope that you find many projects in it that will inspire you to surround yourself with homemade goodness. To read a little bit about how the book came to be check out this post. For a sneak peek inside of Sew Illustrated, check out this video and visit Minki’s YouTube channel.
Every stop on the blog tour is a chance for you to win a copy of the book! You can enter the C&T giveaway right here: a Rafflecopter giveaway. Congratulations to Lesley G, winner of this giveaway! So make sure to visit each one of these lovely makers to see the projects they have created and leave a comment to enter the giveaway.
