I have been so excited about this project, and have been keeping it a secret since last Spring! I was asked to contribute to the Jo-Ann Fall Trends and Ideas LookBook 2014, which was unveiled this week! It's full of great sewing, knitting, crochet, and crafting ideas for the Fall based on four big trends for this next season.
I was working away this past summer on my projects, which was pretty interesting for me since I'm usually playing catch-up instead of thinking ahead a season. It's so nice to have some fun things ready to share this Fall.
I can't wait to wear this ribbed maxi scarf. Isn't that particular shade of lilac beautiful? Such a great color for the Fall Pastels trend. It's a very simple pattern to knit too.
I have been a fan of paper-covered composition books for some time and was so happy to find this fun, masculine paper at Jo-Ann. I added a leather cord too for a stronger Masculine Statement.
My daughter, Scarlett, was the recipient of this plaid taffeta wrap skirt for Sewing with Style. I love the emerald green and sapphire blue hues in this fabric. She can't wait to wear it!
And, lastly, I've got a throw-on-and-go costume for myself for this Halloween! For Chic Halloween I created a satin opera collar cape and added extra embellishments to a sequined mask.
I'll be sharing tutorial for all these projects in the next few weeks, but in the meantime you can check them out in the Jo-Ann Fall Trends and Ideas LookBook 2014 and link to all the instructions by clicking on the project photos. You can see the amazing projects from the other contributors too: Delia Creates, Simple Simon and Company, Girl Loves Glam, and Brit+Co. Such a list of talent! I can't believe I'm sharing the pages with them!
