Late last year I was contacted by Julia Matthews from Derwent Howard Media to ask if I'd be interested in working on a new sewing magazine/bookazine with her. After several months of sewing, working on text and instructions I finally finished the projects, mailed them off and waited anxiously for the issue to arrive in my mailbox.
Today was the day!!! I'm so happy with how the magazine has turned out and apart from the projects, there are some really lovely extra bits and pieces in the issue - an interview with the super talented Amy Butler, a 32 page pull out guide to organising your craft supplies and all the patterns and instructions that you'll need to complete the projects.
I asked Kim Archer and Fiona Carter to contribute some work to the magazine. You can see Kim's projects HERE in her newest blog post. She created a set of fabric house pictures, yummy hairclips and some sweet 'blossom friends' finger puppets that my Bella is dying to make a set of for herself (perhaps this weekend!).
I'll share more of the projects from the magazine over the next few days (including a give away of Australian Homesewn), but for now here is the Babushka Quilt Set (pillow and doll quilt) that I created as part of the 'kids' section.
