Sew Illustrated - Book Tour and Giveaway


Have you ever seen the stunning creations of Minki Kim - well you need too if you haven't already.  Seriously this is one very talented lady with a sewing machine and thread and what she turns them into is nothing short of amazing.


Sew Illustrated - 35 Charming Fabric and Thread Designs is an amazing book by Minki and Kristen.  I totally admit that I have been really intimidated to give Sewing Illustration a go as I thought it was way out of my league.  After reading through the Tips and Techniques in this book - I was sure that I could give it a go.  These ladies have made a wonderful team creating and writing this book.

I decided to make the Tea Mats and using just a few simple supplies which I already had in my sewing room - set about making these.  Well these were so much fun to make. 




I just loved making these and although some of the lines were at times a little wonky I really enjoyed the process and want to give some of the other projects a go.  I can totally see that this type of sewing is totally addictive.



I thought that these Tea Mats were too cute and will be perfect for when friends drop over.

I really enjoyed reading this book with well written instructions and with Minki and Kristen taking you through the steps it was easy to create these fun projects.  Definitely stop by Minki's blog for all her sewing illustration - she is such an inspiration.
