He! He! I'm really, really loving your replies to this post. From reading your comments its SO obvious that I'm in the best of company, and you are so inspiring, and so funny too, you crack me up :) Have you entered the draw to win a pair of yummy Pink Sparkle Handles yet?
Regular readers will know that I design and write a bag tutorial every month for Sewing World Magazine. I have been writing for this mag since October 06, it's a great way to practice my tutorial writing skills, and it makes my Mum (Hi Mum!) burst with pride to see one of her kids in print every month :)
Some of you folks might even have bought a copy or two of the magazine and will have seen these tutorials for yourselves. Whilst looking for another excuse to play with my new scanner, I thought it would be nice to post scans of the magazines that I have appeared in... So here they are, (you'll have to scroll down to a couple of posts because the latest bags haven't been printed yet) I hope you like them!
Quick & Crafty Mag - Aug 06 - This UK funky craft mag focuses on the newest craft trends. Do you recognize this Basket Style Bag? Like I've said before, I have made sooo many of them and they have even popped up in mags! Mmm...I might have red streaks in my hair again...I look like I'm chewing on something, but trying to disguise it...typical, a rare shot at fame and I look like a hamster!
I have a couple of spare back issues of Sewing World Magazine (Dec 05 & May 07) hanging around (I will have more in the future and I'll give those away as too). This mag is a great read for anyone who sews with a sewing machine, it has loads of handy tips and tutes with patterns.
If any of you would like the mags, just comment on this post by telling me which sewing machine you have, and whether the two of you get on...mine is a Janome Memory Craft 3500, and she is an absolute darling! I'll post to wherever the winner of this draw lives in a weeks time Thurs 14th. Good luck!
