OODLES OF PINCUSHIONS
It can be difficult to keep track of pins when sewing, but a cute and fun pincushion ring is an easy solution. These adorable sewing accessories are made with a wooden base and an elastic finger band so they fit all finger sizes. Also a medium-sized leaf embellished “Needle-in-a-Haystack” tomato pincushion is included, perfect for easy access to pins when sewing. These handy cushions are both from oodlesofpincushions.com.
FASHIONARY PAPER SKETCHING PANELS AND SKETCH BOOK
The sketch panels and book used together are perfect for recording on paper the fashions you imagine in your mind. There are four Fashionary paper panels: women’s figure, women’s flat, men’s figure and men’s flat. In addition to the panels, we’ve included Fashionary’s sketch book that also features a fashion dictionary, body measurements, seams and stitches, and much more.
The Fashionary Essential Boxset, *not included in the giveaway*, is also now available on the Fashionary website. It includes the A5 Women’s sketchbook which is the perfect tool for brainstorming, fast sketching, and quick referencing. The boxset also has a women’s flat paper panel, Fashionary tape, and two Fashionary pencils. These great tools allow you to design like a professional with ease.
Kate Middleton is a fashion icon for women all over the world. The Duchess’s style is sophisticated, yet youthful, and Kate’s Style by Caroline Jones (Barron’s Educational Series, Inc., 2013) showcases her most memorable looks along with ways her styles can work for you. It also features tip boxes that give great advice on hair, make up, and assessories so you can put a complete “style package” together just like Kate. A style calendar is also included that charts her styles from her college days to her life as a duchess. Finally, it includes a shopping directory of Kate’s favorite brands and designers. This book will provide perfect fashion inspiration.
