It’s so much fun to make special things for Baby during the holiday season! Here are some practical, sweet ideas from today’s guest curator…

Today’s Guest Curator: Angela from Angela Bowman Design

Angela Bowman is the current Vice President of the Boise Modern Quilt Guild, co-owner of software development company TechRoller, and a wife and mom of two. Angela blogs about sewing, productivity and business on her personal blog AngelaB.me. Angela writes, “Sewing creates an experience that I care deeply about. I explore my creativity, feel the simple satisfaction of making something, escape my hectic schedule, de-stress and have fun. It just makes my life better. I want other people to have this experience, too! That’s why I just started Angela Bowman Design LLC. I’ll be designing products that I want to use and that hopefully make my customers say, ‘This makes my life better,’ even if in some small little way.”

How to Make a Quilt

(US-only shipping.)

Author: Jill Stovall, Florence Temko, Scott Wasserman Stern
Publisher: Tuttle Publishing

Fabrigami is the Asian art of folding fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Like paper, there are countless beautiful fabric designs to choose from, only fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable.

Fabrigami began as origami legend Florence Temko’s final project. Everyone knows that origami is the art of paper folding, but Temko had begun experimenting with folding fabric to make objects that are just as beautiful but more lasting than paper. Sadly, Temko passed away before the book was completed, but her collaborator, Jill Stovall, continued their work. Now, Stovall—with the help of Scott Stern, a rising young star of origami—brings Fabrigami to print for everyone to use and enjoy.

This craft book begins by presenting instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds a shape when folded. Then Stovall shares a series of fun craft projects with simple origami-style diagrams that you can use to make a range of lovely objects.
