We’re all about designer Tina Givens here in the needlearts group. We’ll celebrate of the release her first book, Sew Tina!, with lots of fun posts beginning this week. Look for the book on October 5; until then stick around for an interview, some sneak peeks, a free project or two, and info about Tina’s blog tour. Today I decided to see what the clever folks at Etsy have been making from their stashes of Tina-designed fabrics.
Because Sew Tina! focuses on making cute projects and adorable accessories for kids, I thought I’d look for items geared toward those of us who skew into a different demographic (an older one, that is). Look at this flirty little hostess apron from skygirlstyle:
For the gal on the go who needs a place to stash her cell and keys and lipstick (I assure you that Tina would never be seen without lipstick!), check out this handy ziplet from aggieray’s shop:
Here is a flower pillow from wehrhouse that is so Tina I can barely stand it. It’s got the perfect mixture of whimsy and humor and fun that is present in all of Tina’s fabrics, patterns, and stationery.
Just wait ’til you see all the yummy confections in the book. Not only will you find 30 projects and 18 complete patterns, it’s decorated with Tina’s signature illustrations. Please visit tomorrow for an interview, and on Friday we’ll offer some bonus projects.
