Make It, Take It!

I am really proud to say I am a contributor the book Make It, Take It by Krista Hennebury of Poppyprint!



The premise of the book is that all the projects are crafts centred around retreats.  The projects are either things that you can make while there, or prior to the retreat for storing and toting your supplies.  There are some really fabulous and creative projects in there!  I have received an advance pdf copy and all of the projects are truly top notch.

My contribution?  An amalgamation of my two loves, sewing and knitting!  It's called the Knitwit Needle Clutch, the perfect place to store all of your knitting needles and notions while on the go. Here is a sneak peek- more details to follow (along with a giveaway!) in a future post.



The book is available for pre-order at Amazon and Chapters, but is being released today at shopmartingale.com if you can't wait.  Also, Krista will have some advance copies for sale at QuiltCon, and will be there to sign it for you!  I hope you enjoy the book- it was great fun to be a part of this collaboration.

Hi Kristie! I love this pattern, and I bought the book just to make it. It would be awesome, on your day of the blog tour, if you posted a photo of the whole pouch/clutch. In the book, there's a photo of it closed, and then one open with the top chopped off, so there isn't a flap in the photo. So when I got to the part in the directions about a flap, and there is no photo of a flap, I wasn't totally sure what it was talking about. Anyway, the book is great, and I hope I can get this together because I have a set of Knitter's Pride Needles that would fit nicely in this. Thanks!
