I’m slowly adding more embroidered pins to the shop, starting with these two.
Though Princess Lasertron hasn’t been my full-time gig for over a year now, I’m still doing bridal orders at night when I get home and still embroidering a lot. Particularly as I was finishing the text for my book, practicing my technique and learning new stitches has occupied many of my free hours and I’m happy to share them with you. Each pin I sell will be $20, shipped first class. Rather than name them, I’m numbering this series. In the past these have sold quickly–I don’t know if they are going to get the same traction now as they have in the past, but I love making them again.

My friend Judith Norman, the creator of Craft Chat Eat, contacted me several months ago to design a simple no-sew apron for her first e-book, I ♥ Aprons: 10 “Make It Pretty” Sew & No Sew Apron Projects. Since anything “make it pretty” is right up my alley, I happily agreed and the book finally came out this week! The e-book features beautiful, original, easy-to-make apron designs designed Judith and several other contributors including some of my favorite creative bloggers.
When you download I ♥ Aprons, you get all the instructions for the projects contributed to the book, downloadable patterns and illustrations, and three video tutorials including a Pillowcase Apron project, a Dish Towel Apron, and a tutorial about applying crotcheted edging to fabric. The project was sponsored in part by Wool Felt Central, a fabric supplier I have a close relationship with as well.
This book is full of projects for everyone regardless of experience–the youngest designers are Charlotte and Jessie Mae Frachiolla who are 10 and 8 years old from Sew Crafty Kids.
I ♥ Aprons is available for free at www.craftchateat.com in formats suitable for iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook, Sony, android devices, desktop computers, and laptops. If you’re more into bound books, those are for sale too and include the three video tutorials on DVD. This is a really awesome accomplishment for Craft Chat Eat and I am so grateful to be a part of it! Go download it for free and enjoy!

My friend and great photographer Justin Limoges spent the weekend with me taking photos of the final projects for my craft book coming out in the Spring of next year. So that’s pretty far off, but the past year I spent designing and making and photographing these projects went by in a flash. I can’t share any sneak peeks of the projects yet,
And a shot of my life coach Sarah and spiritual guide Rebecca who helped me with styling and modeling for all of the wearable projects. I really have had the best team at my side through this whole process.
Tonight I have to finish the writing, which entails going through all of the tutorials I’ve created and fixing all of the errors in the instructions that I discovered when I made each project. After that the hard work is done.
The hard work is done.
(And on to more hard work!)
