Reinvention with Maya

For a while now I’ve admired Maya’s lovely blog and cool burlap bucket pattern. Her photos are like jumping into another world for me.
So when I heard she was writing a book, I secretly hoped the buckets would be included.  And sure enough, they are!….along with tons of other great repurposing projects.

The book is called Reinvention and it’s same flavor you get on her site.

Whenever I pick up a new sewing book I’m excited to see what makes it different and unique from the rest…new projects, unique photos, some sort of twist. And what I love about Reinvention is the way the projects are categorized. The chapters are according to fiber type, such as Burlap, Jersey Knit, Linen, etc.  So if you have a fabric you’d like to reinvent, just flip to that fiber section to find a project.

Maya starts with the sewing basics. then jumps right into the projects….like this darling skirt with attached apron (to go with our Knits conversation yesterday).

I’m totally digging these arithmetic pillows and pillow buddies (she also talks about ways to paint fabric).

Maya has sections on reinventing denim, burlap (check out the cool burlap bins below), and even ideas for using old postal envelopes.   Check out what Elsie Marley did with the mailer idea here.

And aside from all the cool projects in the book, the photos really capture Maya’s life and surroundings.  I adore this picture of her wrapped up in a quilt.  Such a different life from my own.  So it’s fun to jump inside her’s for a moment.

Reinvention is beautiful book to flip through with so many fun projects to tackle.
Would you like to try it out?
