I am a big fan of Lotta Jansdotter. Her art is exactly my style, whether she is printing her own Swedish-inspired fabric or writing out patterns in a sewing book. Her products are exactly what I'm looking for-every time. I first found her by her wonderful how-to book on printing: Lotta Prints. When I heard she was having another sewing book come out, I knew I had to have it. I have used this book (and her others, mind you) for endless inspiration, and the photographers she chooses are even a perfect match to my style as well. Even the pages are matte and beautiful to look at!
Wow, enough gushing. Onto the making!
There are a number of things I am going to make for my own little ones in this book, but first I have to get my baby shower presents done first since they are "due". When I made my friend a taggie, the inspiration came out of this book, and her simple to read & understand patterns let me put it together in the nick of time! I am so glad I had this book on hand!
Here is a picture of the starfish taggie I made for Anikka for Christmas.
This is a book I recommend to any level of sewer, because it has lots of easy to use patterns, but also, for the more experienced sewer, tons and tons of inspiration. It is useful just to look at to get fresh ideas.
Stay tuned for another craft-The Mei Tei Carrier by Sew Liberated.
