I have so very many talented designer friends, Elaine Schmidt just has a new Simplicity pattern released, #1931, beautiful and stylish shaggy rugs made from fleece. Fleece is cut in strips attached to a canvas back, a great way to use up fleece remnants. Elaine comments that any patterned fleece can be used as the pattern disappears and it is the overall color effect that is achieved.
Her inspiring gorgeous ribbon book is also part of a give away with Quayside Publishing and Crafts 'n Coffee. This book has 700 photographs with a detailed how to sections and a comprehensive guide of all types of ribbon and designs to create! The STYROFOAM TM collection offered along with the book give away will give you the opportunity to create some stunning projects like the beribboned topiary trees. Elaine definitely sews up "oh sew pretty" things!
