I've been a big fan of Rashida Coleman-Hale for quite awhile. Writer of the iheartlinen blog, Rashida has a clean aesthetic and a clever project sensibility that I just love. Rashida recently released her Washi fabric collection through Timeless Treasures, and sells other charming fabrics through Spoonflower that incorporate love letters, quirky vessels, and more washi tape as design elements. She's also the author of two sewing books on zakka projects, I Love Patchwork: 21 Irresistible Zakka Projects to Sew and the new Zakka Style. We just found out this morning that Lindsey of LRStitched and Amy of Sukie have put together a Zakka Style sewalong/blog tour that begins this Monday, 4/2.
We're a little late with our giveaway of Rashida's Zakka Style, but don't let that stop you from participating in the sewalong–or from entering the drawing for this fantastic project book! To sweeten the deal, we'll also throw in two yards of our linen/cotton canvas printed with the Rashida Coleman-Hale Spoonflower design (or two designs) of your choice. You know the drill, right? To enter this drawing, just comment on this post or on the corresponding Facebook post and please be sure to include your Spoonflower screen name so we can track you down easily. Entries close next Tuesday, 4/3 at 7 pm EST, and we'll announce a winner on 4/4. Good luck, everyone! This entry is now closed, and we'll be announcing a winner tomorrow. Thanks, all!
Last week's winner of three awesome books about pattern design was Gergana Mollova in San Francisco, no slouch in the design department herself. Congratulations, Gergana!
