I am so happy to be able to Re-Issue eMailorder Issue #7! I think it's a perfect fit for summer. Here's what you will get in this special PDF issue (It's exactly the same as the original, the only difference is that it's a PDF you print at home, so because there's no mailing, it's a bit less expensive. We love that!)
This issue's sewing project focuses on paper foundation piecing which, despite it's fancy look, is PERFECT for beginners. It's an easy and accurate way to make small patchwork blocks, without the tears, by sewing the fabric onto paper printed with the stitching lines to follow. So, if you can sew a straight line (I know you can) you can do this! No measuring!
Here's what you will receive in this jam packed $8 issue:
-The eMailorder Sewing Project: Learning to make foundation blocks with complete directions/patterns. Included are 4 designs
-Illustrated ideas for potential projects with these blocks
-The delightful eMailorder Recipe Card—Rhubarb Blueberry Crumble
-The eMailorder paper project: Kitchen Friend Stick Puppets
-The eMailorder Merit Badge
-And the eMailorder Secret Word (which will award you a secret prize when found and entered onto kingpod)
A sample of one of the blocks made from this issue #7 made by Sarah, of the Small Object
And look! She made hers into coasters! I love these to bits!
Please take a look at the Mailor group on flickr to see some of the amazing projects using these foundation patterns. They are stunning!
You can buy it right here and not to jump the gun, but this technique would be perfect for using on holiday gifts.
And this is a PDF you print at home, it's not sent to you, or even e-mailed to you—just hit "return to kingpod" after you pay for it via paypal and you will automatically get the download. If you forget or have problems just e-mail me. We will sort it out.
