This is a book about sewing. It even has patterns in an envelope inside the back book cover. If you know me then you know I don't sew. So what am I doing with this book?
Blame it on the library. I was looking through the section on knitting and the sewing section was right there next to it. The book pages were so colorful that I brought it home with me.
It seems Lotta Jansdotter does lots more than create sewing patterns. In fact, as far as I can tell, her commercial work is in the field of printmaking. The book includes some simple jewelry making ideas and lots of examples of color/design as well as the sewing portion.
Here is her blog link.
I really enjoyed the book for its pictures and clear explanations. I think even I could sew something using her very basic patterns.
I give the book a high recommendation even though I won't be using the clothing patterns. I enjoy reading about creative people and their ideas. Do you?
