Have you seen Jennifer Paganelli’s new book, Girls World? I got a sneak peak when Jennifer sent us a few for giveaways at the Quilt Market Meetup. This book is gorgeous. And I am not even being overly dramatic when I say that. It’s such a beautiful, colorful book. Even the pocket for the patterns is really pretty.
This book has 21 sewing projects to make for or with little girls, such as dresses, aprons, bags, headbands, quilts, and an adorable puppy. The photos, design and projects are so beautiful and inspiring. Even if you only make a hand full of these projects, you’ll love this book just for the color, inspiration and sheer joy that it exudes. (Nice word, eh?) But trust me, there are so many good projects, you’ll find many you want to try. (That is an important quality for me when investing in a new pattern book = multiple patterns that I will use.)
I especially love all the details in this book, including Jennifer’s signature Casey Scroll print. I was first introduced to the Casey Scroll fabric by my friend, Aunt Spicy (who is a Jennifer Paganelli die-hard) when she made her own adorable Union Jack pillow. (This is actually when I first knew that Aunt Spicy and I were long-lost kindred spirits.)
In a gesture of extreme love and sacrifice, Aunt Spicy even gave me a little piece of her beloved Casey Scroll stash. And so of course, I had to pay homage to her original Union Jack. I’m think this one is one of my favorites.
Thanks again Jennifer Paganelli for sharing your wonderful new book with us. We will have 3 copies to give away the night of the meetup! But if you can’t win a copy, I still highly recommend getting your hands on a copy of Girl’s World. It will be released next Wednesday. You won’t be disappointed.
