Did you guys happen to know that I am a Pellon Project Artist? When I first joined the team (unofficially) last year, I had the pleasure of sharing my Holiday in Paris tutorial to make relaxing gift set (tote bag, eye pillow, and homemade bath salts). You may remember that this tutorial was initially part of my Holiday How-to Series that I organized last November here on the blog.
The gift set uses a couple of different Pellon interfacing products that really help to give it a nice, finished look. When I made this project (before I was contacted by the company), I used Pellon interfacing simply because I have always had good results with it and I like how it helps to give structure and improve the overall finish of a completed project. I of course was thrilled when I was later contacted by Pellon to put together a downloadable tutorial for their fantastic website.
I am now excited to announce that I will be contributing more tutorials to the growing project catalogue over on the Pellon site. I have now "officially" :) joined the Project Artist team and will be working on a new tutorial soon. In the meantime, feel free to hop over to the Pellon site to check out my new artist bio and the other amazing (and free!) project tutorials contributed by members of the very talented artist team. I bet you'll probably recognize some of the other names too. :)
I also wanted to let you know that my friend Jennie (of Clover and Violet) is hosting a giveaway of my Have A Hoot Vintage Inspired Embroidery and Cushion Pattern. Jennie, who is also a very talented pattern writer, was part of the editing team that helped me to put the finishing touches on this. I am very grateful for her insights and suggestions. :) So head on over to Clover and Violet to enter the giveaway!
