Bend-the-Rules Sewing

I picked this book up in Colorado and enjoyed peeking at it all the way home. In fact, I was itching to get into the *gigantic shopping bags of darling fabric* I had picked up at Denver Fabrics and The Creative Needle, also in Denver.

The photography is wonderful, the fabrics and trim choices are inspiring, and it's very nice to have some basic crafty-type patterns all in one place. However, the pattern pieces and instructions are probably not the easiest for a beginner to follow, nor do the patterns "bend the rules", as far as I can tell.

In spite of that, this is my favorite sewing book of recent vintage! Colorful, fun, stylish!

I've got this book on my "wish list". I also enjoy the author's blog from time to time, called "Angry Chicken".

I've always wanted to go to The Creative Needle in Denver. They sponsor all the sewing shows on PBS in Colorado. I'm only 3 hours away, you'd think I'd get there sometime! LOL

The book looks interesting.
