Publications Available

It has been a long while since I shared a summary of what publications I have available. My apologies.

Fanciful Utility: Victorian Sewing Cases and Needle-books is a guide packed full of directions and templates for making your own period correct sewing cases, housewifes, and needle-books. FanU is available directly from the Publisher at http://www.thesewingacademy.com/2012/08/fanciful-utility/

To Net, or Not to Net: Revisited is an in-depth look at hair nets of the mid-nineteenth century. This e-book is packed full of cdvs and illustrations, covering how nets were worn and what they were made of. This e-book is available through my Etsy shop.

Paisley, Plaid, & Purped: Shawls of the Mid-Nineteenth Century looks at the types of shawls worn in this era, from the sizes to the materials. This book includes original directions for making shawls. This e-book is available through my Etsy shop.

From Field to Fashion: The Straw Bonnet was my first book covering the the materials and processes used to make straw hats and bonnets. This book focuses on the mid-nineteenth century. This e-book is available through my Etsy shop.

IN DETAIL – I developed the “In Detail” series to take a closer look at original handmade items. These publications are packed full of close-up photos and details of how these pieces were made. Many of these publications include directions for making your own using period techniques.

In Detail: Blue Ribbon Sewing Case looks at an amazing sewing case made from a single plaid ribbon. (Note: this publication does not include directions.) This e-publication is available through my Etsy shop.

In Detail: The Velvet Slipper Pincushion takes a close look at this example of a popular sewing accessory. This e-publication is available through my Etsy shop.

In Detail: The Pillow Pin Ball is near and dear to me as it was written at a very difficult time. This edition looks at a well loved pincushion made of pillow segments. This is a great project to use you scraps or to share with friends. This e-publication is available through my Etsy shop.

In Detail: Embroidered Velvet Needle-book looks at a staple of the 19th century workbox: the needle-book. This edition focuses on recreating this sweet example. This e-publication is available through my Etsy shop.

PATTERNS

My Fichu Pattern previously sold out quickly in its paper form. As a downloadable pattern, you can start you fichu in the middle of the night if need be. This e-pattern is available through my Etsy shop.

This Winter Bonnet Pattern is the first of my winter hood/bonnet patterns. This is the more structured of those available currently. Suitable for the 1850s and 1860s. This e-pattern is available through my Etsy shop.

This Mid-century Winter Hood pattern is my second hood pattern offering. This is a thinner quilted hood, that is warm and good for windy or wet environments. Suitable for 1840s through 1860s. This e-pattern is available through my Etsy shop.

Remember: I also have numerous free templates available here, on my blog for period correct projects. I also have modern projects available on Don’t Paint the Cat.
