new pieces in Adorn and Cutting Edge November 30, 2006

I just love Adorn magazine — the second issue is completely gorgeous. Whether you want to make cute holiday cards, felt-and-sequin earrings (by the ultra-talented Faythe Levine), fabric-covered headbands, pom-pom garlands, or delicate filigree-and-chain jewelry, it’s jam-packed with great ideas for gifts or for yourself. And I’m so excited about my feature, the New Craft Night! I interviewed crafters from all over the country about their get-togethers at bars, studios, coffeehouses, and living rooms and got great info, pictures, and ideas for starting your own group.

I also designed a flower-and-ribbon holiday card for the new Cutting Edge… and the issue is filled with fun and beautiful things to sew. There are patterns and instructions for elegant garments like a silky cowl-neck dress and a dramatic beaded jacket, as well as cute animal-themed pillows, blankets, wall decor, and plushies for a kid’s room extraordinaire.

I’d love to hear what you think if you’ve picked up either of the issues! And I’ve gotten to write about some fun stuff over at the Adorn blog lately, too. Those girls always have the best ideas!

p.s. If you’re a fan of PDX Super Crafty, I just updated our collective blog with all the super crafty stuff we have coming up in December and beyond — be sure to check it out!
