I’ve known about the new title soon to be released by Lotta Jansdotter, Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects (Hardcover) for some time now, but had no clue Lotta blogged until I heard it from my friend Anh-Minh. Isn’t that a great bit of information to stumble upon? I thought so.
You have to check out Lotta’s blog, and don’t forget to pre-order her new book at Amazon for $16. It releases March 1st, and I can’t wait to try some of the projects inside. I’m also excited to see the photos inside since her photographer is Meiko Arquillos who is responsible for some beautiful work for ReadyMade magazine and Chronicle Books. Yeah!
