Hello, but I have been WAITING for this book to arrive!! Yes, it is the chicken’s second, utterly glorious book: Bend the Rules with Fabric
You should get it, and I’m not just saying that because Amy is my friend. I was lucky enough to actually TOUCH many of the projects in this book, and the oohs and aaahs came naturally.
Now, I am not someone who plays with fabric dye or stencils or stamps and such (that’s what this book is about: “fun sewing projects with stencils, stamps, dye, photo transfers, silk screening, and more”), but seeing these projects not only made me WANT to stick my hands into tubs of dye but actually made it seem possible.
One great thing about Amy is she’s really funny, and that comes through in her book. The projects are playful and fun, and you’re not going to feel judged or humiliated if you screw something up (at least I hope so, because I can assure you I am going to screw up some projects, despite the clear and helpful instructions).
Yeah, so it’s a big love fest for this book, plus I GOT A SET OF THE Bend the Rules Gift Labels, TOO, which I find terribly exciting, because I am one of those people who never has a card or label to accompany a gift.
So get on over to your local bookstore or just suck it up and order the book online, but do get your hands on it and the labels! And locals, there’s a Powell’s reading coming up, and there will be a CAKE WALK. Stay tuned.
