Published :)

Last winter, I was approached by a small publishing company in the UK called Cicada and asked to contribute to a craft book.

It is called State of Craft and contains a variety of projects. I like the vibe of it- not your typical craft book. I have contributed my "classic pillowcase dress" pattern....lucky for you, the tutorial is already on my sidebar on the right...yup, just over there!

I just received my copies and found some great projects like these:



And some that make me giggle, like these:



The book is available here. And it's even on sale :)

That's so awesome! I know a few grown up men in my life who would love a string of water pistol lights, hehe. Love your pillow case pattern. If only I'd known about it 10 years ago (when it would have fit me) HA!
