May is for Makers: Week 2

May 13, 2016

For week 2 of my May is for Makers purchases I chose 3 books. One was a physical copy and the two other's a got for FREE (thanks to my Kindle Unlimited account!!) and digitally downloaded via Kindle ontop my phone and Macbook Pro.

The first purchase was the physical book,  Handmade Style book by Anna Graham. It wasn't a difficult purchase for me as I've already bought single patterns (for bags and such) from Anna's shop before, so I knew it would be worth buying. It has gorgeous photos and wonderful directions for patterns accompanied by hand drawn illustrations which I absolutely loved! Such a personal feel!

I have already made a project from this book to gift to a friend (sneak peek below) which I will blog about this coming Monday with lots more pictures and details :) I can't wait to dive into it some more and make something for myself.

Next up were the digital Kindle versions of Scrap Happy Sewing by Retro Mama and Patchwork Please! by Ayumi Takahashi. I don't have photos of them, obviously, but I have read through both books and even made a Roll Up Jewelry Pouch from the Scrap Happy Sewing book! 

Have you heard about May is for Makers? Are you participating? I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on it and what you're buying or plan to buy!

Thanks for reading :)

  1. Those sound like three very good scores. I am participating in May is for Makers too. I love the idea. There is so much work that goes into writing patterns and books, it feels good to be supporting those that work so hard to provide the information.
