***this giveaway is now closed. thank you all for your entries.***
i'm so excited to have my friend and author jenny wilding cardon here on the mommyhood today! you all know the story about our post office adventure (click here to read more) and wow - was it a happy day when my copies of resew finally showed up at the door! i did a little happy dance i can tell you that! let me just say that i love this book. aside from the fact that jenny has the most infectious creative spirit and is a total sweetheart, you'll find that if you aren't already addicted to thrifting this book will surely inspire you to get out, find your local haunts and start treasure hunting! the craft of refashioning and repurposing is addicting, rewarding, challenging and jenny makes it oh so much fun!
the best part about resew is that it makes the whole process of revamping found items that much more exciting! i know for me, being someone who is still learning how to sew, i learned a whole whack load of new tips, tricks and techniques from jenny's "retips" found all throughout the book. i love these little peekaboo's at jenny's personality that are infused with all the sewing goodness. they were entertaining and very helpful. i also enjoyed the projects she had created. they were perfect for any sewer - beginner to intermediate. it was nice to see step by step instructions and guidelines on how to actually create these items! it made me imagine a whole world of options the next time i'm out thrifiting or shopping in my own closet!
so as jenny says in the book "i am molly ringwald in pretty in pink. and you can be too!" oh jenny, we were so meant to be friends...haha. so let's all embrace our inner mollys, hit up the thrift stores and get fabulizing your wardrobe and your home! you won't regret it! heck grab a friend to bring with you....we all need a ducky in our lives right? :)
let's take a peek at some of the projects in the book.....
