Stitched Blooms: Blog Tour Update

September 20, 2013, 15:00 pm  Posted by Lark

Stitched Blooms fever has officially zapped crafters everywhere! We kicked off the official Stitched Blooms blog tour this week, and stitchers are falling in love with Carina’s colorful motifs and projects!

On Monday, Lark’s Amanda Carestio showed us how she revamped her little girl’s skirt with leaf motif #165. See the results (and Ruby’s too-cute little legs!), plus download the leaf motif here. “There are so many things to love about Stitched Blooms,” says Amanda. “The sumptuous cover, Carina’s informative section about color, the 20 incredibly cute projects, the 300 motifs that you can do absolutely anything with, and the CD so you can resize the motifs to suit your needs.”

On Tuesday, Sara from Sew Sweetness stitched up her own version of the Spectacular Spectacles Case, which we think is just lovely! You can see it on her post here. She was also taken with the Pretty Organized Calendar project: “The border of the calendar is embroidered and sewn together, and there is a printable for the actual paper calendar, which you slip inside the border. If I had more time, I totally would have made this project for my review! It seems both beautiful and functional.”

And on Wednesday, Jessica at Running with Scissors and Diane at Craftypod joined in the fun! “I’m a fan of Carina’s color sense,” says Diane. “It’s bright and clear and happy, and she can mix a whole slew of colors without ever sliding into garishness. I was thrilled to see her give this subject some serious coverage in her book.” Find out what else Diane loved about the book here.

Jessica was thrilled to find all the motifs on CD. “(It was) one of my favorite aspects of the book. You get all the images so you can enlarge, combine, or shrink them to meet the needs of your project.” To read Jessica’s review, and for chance to win a free floss bundle, click here.

Keep checking in daily with the bloggers below as they explore all that Stitched Blooms has to offer! And don’t forget to pre-order your copy of the book, which will be available online and in bookstores everywhere in October! Happy Stitching!
