Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch Studio

I have been waiting for the release of Kristen Sutcliffe’s book Fabric · Paper · Thread since we first received her proposal in our weekly editorial meeting. The projects were just so cool and fresh! There’s neon and linen and critters and skinny pen lines!

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch StudioNow that the book is out, I refuse to accept that it’s just for kids….there are so many projects I want to make from the book, for my very own self.  And what’s even cooler – Kristen uses a lot of everyday, household items for her crafts, like office supply store stickers, duct tape, and pens. I can go home today with my book and just get started….it doesn’t hurt that I’ve been crafting pretty much since I was born, so in addition to fabric and thread, I have beads, stamps, carving tools, ribbon, glitter…..

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch StudioThere are so many enticing projects, you just have to help me decide what to make!
Vote in the poll to tell me which one I should make (first) and you’ll have a chance to win it. I’ll post what I’ve made later in the month, so you’ll want to check back in and see how I channeled Kristen’s spirit.

Should I make the Painted Graphics Pencil Holder?
It uses paint, fabric, and those round dot stickers you can get at an office supply store to pretty up an coffee can (we empty plenty of those at home!)

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch StudioOr some note cards, so I can go old-school and mail some sweet notes to friends?
There are 2 fun options:
the no-muss, no-fuss Watercolor and Pen Postcards

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch Studioor there are the Stamped and Stitched Cards.

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch Studio
Like I said, I’ve been crafting pretty much my entire life, so I have stamp pads (including some awesome neon inks from Hero Arts that I just bought at Once Around, a fantastic craft shop in Mill Valley, CA), carving tools and the material you can cut or carve to make stamps from Speedball, and plenty of embroidery floss with which to stitch. That makes it a top contender!

Or I could make some fun bits and bobs to wear: I have leather scraps that could easily combine with said floss to make the Leather Bracelets.

Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe for FunStitch StudioMy quilter’s binding clips could easily be converted into the Color Wheel Hair Clips with just some scissors, floss, and scraps of felt.

I really want to make them all……you’ve got to help me keep my crafting sanity and just choose one…well, maybe two…

Giveaway!

To win your own copy of Fabric ·Paper ·Thread leave a comment telling us if you voted or not! Winner will be selected at random on June 11th (ALSO the day the poll is closed!) and added to this post. International winners will receive the e-book version. Good Luck!
