Sewing is an amazing way to connect with other creative people. Though this issue of Sew Simple is my last, I thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm. It's been so inspiring to hear from you and see your wonderful creations. Thanks as well to all the talented designers, editors, writers and photographers I've had the pleasure of working with along the way.
To me, Sew Simple encapsulates everything that's great about sewing … cool projects, contemporary fabrics, and quick-and-easy instructions. I like the instant gratification that comes from completing a skirt in an afternoon so I can wear it that night!
But most of all, I think that sewing should be fun and should fit easily into your life. It's such a great feeling when someone asks you where you got that fabulous bag, skirt, (fill in the blank with something you made) and you can tell them that you made it.
This selection of projects might be my favorite yet. Be sure to write in with your thoughts and comments—we love hearing from you! And, as always, happy sewing!
