Ebook review: Small Stitches

I wanted to talk about this cute little embroidery ebook from Carina I bought a couple of months ago, via her blog.

If you were thinking on getting into embroidery for 2010, this is a great ebook to get you started. (Or if you know someone who wants to!)

Here’s why I liked this ebook:

+ Great visual information/content. There are great pictures with each explanation of the stitche.
+ A simple, yet, colorful design of the ebook.
+ You can learn 11 pretty and useful stitches.
+ There are 9 patterns included in it which are all very pretty!
+ At 10.00$, it’s very affordable and worth the price if you want to start embroidery.

I already  knew the embroidery stitches and basics she showed, but I happily found some information I didn’t know of. And, I must say, I have a soft spot for crafty ebooks. 😉

Get Small Stitches at her Etsy shop!

And don’t forget to let me know if you have an ebook plan for 2010.
I would love to hear from your project! 🙂

Ebook review: Crafty Tree Trimmings

It’s that time of the year again! I usually wouldn’t talk about a Christmas themed Ebook until, say, a few days. 😉
But this one is special because, not only is it made by awesomes crafters: Sister Diane, Susan Beal, Linda Permann, Katey Terry, Betz White and Patricia Zapata.
But also because part of the profits made on the ebook will go to Project Linus, a non-profit organization that delivers handmade blankets to childrens in need of a little comfort.

Why I love this crafty ebook:

  • Lots of quality images with the tutorials.
    It’s very easy to follow each steps as there are beautiful images that comes with it.
  • Originals projects.
    I love how each one of them is an original idea from each crafter. I love to try out different projects for Christmas crafting since, you know, it does come back each year. 😉
  • Patterns are included. 
    And this means you can just print the pattern from your computer and start your project right away. How cool!
  • List of ressources and materials.
    At the end of the ebook, you have a good list of online stores where you can find the materials for your projects.

Not to mention I see a lot of potential with theses projects to organize a Christmas craft party with friends &  family.  🙂
