Wow what a great video!! Loved all the color and Jennifer Paganelli's soft nature. I want to make some beautiful flowy curtains for my 2 kitchen windows out of some of my vintage linen collection! I can see it in my minds eye...now, to do it!! =) Thanks for the chance <3

Great video! I'm not much of a seamstress, but I would love to sew a big snuggle blanket for our couch! My mom is a master quilter (find her on etsy, pamelaquilts is her username), she made me a blanket when I was around two that we use as our snuggle blanket now, but I would like to put that one on our kids bed someday, so I need a new one! If I won this book, I would pass it along to my mom!

Her studio is so inspiring! No wonder she can create such beautiful fabric- she is surrounded by awesomesauce!

I really need some new pillowcases. So easy, I know... and yet I never get around to sewing them!

(and now I want to make a whole rack of colorful peasant dresses and tunics... and a starburst quilted pillow... and make circle garland...hmm...)

I want to sew pillows for my home, but I don't have anywhere to put them. :(

However, I do need some curtains, so I guess that's a more realistic answer.

Wow that video was kind of fun! I really enjoyed seeing her process and yeah, I'm totally coveting that design space and fabric storage! Wow.

I love Jennifer Pagenelli and would love to get my hands on a copy of this book. What I really need to get motivated to make is some colorful pillows.

I saw this video when Jennifer posted the link on Twitter. I immediately declared that there was not enough natural light in this house and that the hubs needed to take the kids so I could sew - finished up some placemats and napkins. Jennifer is one of the most amazing women. I love how she designs. And I love her patterns. This book would be a VERY welcome addition to my Christmas making list. =) Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Jen said...

Wow! I just checked that book out at the library, but I have to return it soon and I don't want to! The video was neat, I love how her fabrics are based on vintage ones.

I have a lot of things I plan on making for my home soon. We're redoing my daughter's room, so I need to make curtains for that. I also finally have enough vintage sheets to make a quilt. I'm so excited, I've been hunting for them for a year and half and I'm ready to cut now!

Stephanie said...

Would put this book to great use! It would be very tired when I put it to rest!!!

Stephanie said...

Sorry Forgot to put what I would create!!- I am actually trying to give a couple of my rooms a face lift without actually lifting their face!! So curtains, pillows, throw blankets! I also wouldn't mind having a huge fabric cabinet like the one behind her! That was awesome!

Life In The Thrifty Lane said...

WOW, such a beautiful collection of fabric! Loved to see all those colors and prints! I would like to make a throw blanket!

lynaeve said...
