my book is here!

at long last, my book, design your own tees, is coming out TOMORROW! i can't believe it. it has been over two years since i first met with an editor at st. martin's press to brainstorm this book into creation. the book is filled with creative ideas and techniques to show you how to print, stitch, and stamp tee shirts (or anything else, really) and hopefully inspire you to spruce up your wardrobe with some handmade creations.

here are a few pictures from the book, just to give you a sneak peek of some of my favorite projects:

totem tee
potato stamping

rough edges
raw-edged applique

cherry blossom

screen printing

i am planning to be selling the book at a bunch of craft fairs and book-related events throughout the fall. if you have any ideas for a book event in your area, please let me know.

and i hope you'll decide to pick up a copy to keep or give as a gift. thanks for your support!

i have been travelling a lot this past month. first a vacation/family trip to montana and wyoming, then a tour of california stopping at the renegade craft fairs in LA and SF. i am just now getting the chance to look through all of the pictures from our vacation.

here is the grand prismatic spring. leaves me speechless.
