Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects

A fun thing for Lotta, that has come out of her book, is seeing what other people have made from it. She loves seeing the kinds of fabrics used, and how each project ends up looking different. She is planning on collecting images from people who have made projects from the book, and is doing a call out to crafters who have her book and want to share what they’ve made with her. The plan is to get an album together which Lotta will have at the Maker Faire event she’ll be doing on 5/19 (at 2pm in the craft area). She’ll also be doing an event at Lavish in SF (on 5/18 from 5:30-7:30) and the book will be there as well.

If you are interested in this then check out Lotta’s blog and email her with your photo’s of your projects from her book. As a bonus three randomly picked people who send in their photos will receive a signed copy of Lotta’s book. The images will also appear on the Chronicle Books and on Lotta’s website. Lotta would like people to mail images of what they created from the book to: questions@jansdotter.com

Thanks for letting us know about this. I am waiting for my book to arrive from Amazon but they say it’s on it’s way! Also, it looks like the link from Whip Up might have blown Lotta’s bandwidth limit as there is a “Bandwidth Limit Exceeded” message coming up on her blog URL. I will try again later though.

I’ve been trying for awhile and have not yet been able to view her site. Can’t wait!!

There’s a Flickr group called Lotta Jansdotter Simple Sewing for sharing projects made from the book.
