This week we're so pleased to be giving away a copy of the newest book by Laurie Wisbrun, fabric designer and author extraordinaire. Embellish Me: How to Print, Dye, and Decorate Your Fabric covers every technique I've ever heard of–and many I hadn't heard of before!–for creating and altering fabrics, from the first chapter on designing patterns and various methods of printing them, through dyeing and bleaching methods, and on through embellishment techniques including embroidery, buttons, lace, leather, sequins, fringe, and more. Lavishly photographed, Embellish Me provides an excellent and comprehensive introduction to all sorts of fabric creation and alteration methods, and is sure to inspire you to try new ways to design and create!
Heather Dutton, another favorite Spoonflower designer, contributed to the first chapter in Embellish Me on how to design patterns using both computer and hand-drawn methods, and has graciously agreed to select 6 patterns from her Bloem collection on Spoonflower to include as a Kona fat quarter bundle in our giveaway today. Thanks, Heather!
To enter this week's givaway for a copy of Embellish Me, a bundle of six fat quarters of Heather Dutton's designs, plus a little bag of surprise goodies that Heather sent along, just follow the link below. Entries will close next Tuesday, 2/19, and we'll announce a winner on 2/20. Good luck to you all!
Last week, we gave away a big bundle of fat quarters from Greta Songe–6 designs selected from her Spoonflower shop and 6 from her new collections with Marcus Fabrics–and the winner of all this loveliness was Audrey Clayton. Congratulations, Audrey, and we'll be in contact shortly about your prize!
