Fussy Cutters Club is officially released out in to the world as of today and it’s a bit of a crazy feeling to see something that’s been 2 years in the making finally out in the hands of other people. To celebrate the release I’m hosting a blog hop to share with you the projects from the book, some behind-the-scenes about how they came to be, why the book is important to me and (probably the best part of the whole thing) what some of my favourite bloggers have made using the book! The blog hop is going to run for just under a month and there’s going to be chances to win copies of the book and mystery bundles, participate in an International Swap and meet some amazing people along the way.
I’l be blogging each day on the blog hop (as per the timetable below) and sharing the project, a little about that day’s blogger and some more information about how you can use Fussy Cutters Club to make these projects your own and unleash your creativity. To kick off the event I’ve shared some thoughts about why I love Fussy Cutters Club over on the C&T Publishing blog and you can read them by clicking here.
I’m really proud of Fussy Cutters Club and I hope that you’ll come to love it as much as I do. The book is jammed packed with all the information you need to know about how I approach fussy cutting. It’s great for beginners just starting out, or for those of you that have being sewing and quilting for a number of years and you’re looking for new ways to use fabrics. My goal with Fussy Cutters Club is to inspire you to trust your own aesthetic and have fun with fabrics. In Fussy Cutters Club I walk you through everything you need to know to understand fabrics, what to look for when buying fabrics and how to use them effectively to inject your personality into your creative projects.
Fussy Cutters Club goes into detail about all the tools, notions, tips and tricks I use when I work and shows you how you can get away with using just a ruler and rotary cutter to have fun. There’s also a chapter on the other pieces of equipment I use for those looking to branch out (within their budget). I walk you through how to customise templates you have on hand to help with fussy cutting and even how to use templates to create those amazing repeating pattern designs we all love.
There’s 14 projects in the book for all skill levels and timeframes. I want you to be able to use this book as a reference book to get out of your comfort zone and start having fun in fabric stores and with your projects. Over the coming weeks I’ll be sharing the projects from the book and talking about ways you can customise them even further and sharing examples of the projects made by the amazing bloggers on the blog hop and even some alternate versions I’ve made. It’s going to be awesome and I’m so thrilled to be able to share it all with you!
