Anna’s new book – HANDMADE STYLE – 2 book giveaway

It’s so exciting to flip through a new sewing book.
And it’s even more exciting when it’s by someone you’ve watched and grown with, as a blogger and friend over the years.

Handmade Style book by blogger Anna Graham

I was lucky to meet Anna of Noodlehead at Quilt Market about 5 years ago….back when neither of us really knew anything.
Maybe a better way to put it is that we were still figuring out how this business of making, sewing, sharing, and designing all worked.
And now here she is with her own book AND a new line of fabric!

handmade style book

The book is called Handmade Style: 23 Must-Have Basics to Stitch, Use, and Wear

And it’s filled with so many beautiful things.
There are classic Anna projects.
And by classic, I mean, beautiful bags, pouches, zippy things….the kind of stuff she’s the master at, and is so good at explaining.

Can’t you imagine either of these in a trendy boutique shop??
Well, you can make them!

The book has an interesting layout, which as a blogger, I really love.
When I put a blog post together, I often think about how each picture will look as a cohesive whole—what order they will go in, how they all fit together as a “book”, rather than individual photos.

And that’s the feel you get here.  The first 1/3 of the book is a Look Book, with all the photos in one place.  There are pages and pages of gorgeous projects that flow together beautifully.

Then after you oooo and aaaaaaahhh (and have a list of 23 things you want to make),  comes the Instruction Section with illustrations.  And after that are pattern pieces—which are in REAL SIZE format!

That deserves a book purchase right there!
No photocopying or fiddling around to increase the pattern size, etc.

The book has projects for Quilting.

How fantastic is this photo??
I want to live in whatever that stripey white barn thing is….and probably wrap myself in that blanket all winter long.

There’s a whole section on apparel.
Did you know you can make flip flops?  What??

There are also other small projects, and items for the home.
And I just love seeing Anna in some of the pics.
You are a gorgeous lady my friend!

    You write such great reviews! I have seen a couple short reviews on other blogs and was feeling relatively meh (I do sometimes so bags and have loved Anna’s patterns but I mostly sew other stuff) but you make me want to go to the bookstore first thing in the morning to check this book out 😀

    So sad I missed the contest as well. Oh well. I AM wondering if Anna’s divided basket is one of the patterns in the book. Would LOVE that!
    Oh, and I’m pretty sure you would NOT want to live in the “stripey white barn thing”. I’m pretty sure (having grown up in rural WI myself) that it’s a corn crib. And there are probably “critters” amongst the cobs of corn.
