Make It Sew Modern review and Giveaway!

I was lucky to get my hands on a copy of Vanessa Christenson’s new book, Make It Sew Modern last week. (It even arrived on my birthday. How’s that for awesome timing?) I’ve been so excited to peruse the projects in this book ever since I first knew of it’s inception.
 
And let me tell you, there are some beauties. 
This book is all about creating with texture.
 
And there is a big variety of projects to choose from: bags, wreaths, quilts, home decor, rings and bracelets…
 

This throw pillow is on my to-do list now. I love the simplicity of the two solid fabrics and the pop that little bit of pleated texture brings.

 
The book itself is so pretty – lots of eye candy to get those creative juices flowing.
 
And guess what? Vanessa is generously offering to give away a copy of Make It Sew Modern to one of you readers. It doesn’t even have to be your birthday.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. If you want to, share which of these projects intrigues or inspires you most.  Giveaway will close Saturday, March 24 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
Happy Belated Birthday!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you had a wonderful day! This seems like a great book! Thanks for doing a giveaway! Hope you have a beautiful day! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo Heather
Good luck, and thanks again V!

    the pleated flower or the cushion. I&#39;m generally not much of a ruffle fluffle fan – but I like to pin flowers on my bags and jackets and that would be a new way for me and the cushion is not overly ruffly as it&#39;s enclosed and I quite like that effect.
