Torie Jayne's Stylish Home Sewing - My new book

Evening lovelies! I am so excited and delighted to share with you today my new book...

Torie Jayne's Stylish Home Sewing

About the book:
"Torie Jayne is a successful designer, blogger and author with a keen interest in creating beautiful accessories for the home. Her blog, toriejayne.com, receives over 100,000 hits a month, and features her trademark sewing in beautiful saturated pastels, as well as baking and other crafts. Now Torie has created over 35 projects for you to make, to bring some of her style to your home. The kitchen chapter includes table linen, a bread basket and utensil holder, while the bedroom chapter features an eye mask, make-up bag and a padded headboard. The entrance hall chapter includes useful storage projects, such as square storage boxes made from fabric plus fabric and oilcloth bags. The garden chapter showcases practical projects such as a garden kneeler with carry-handles and a polka-dot tool belt, as well as decorative bench cushions, a child's play tent and bunting. Every project is in fresh, appealing colours, and reflects Torie's sewing expertise, as well as her eye for patterns."

Last year my wildest dream happened, my favourite publishers Ryland Peters & Small and Cico asked me if I would like to write a book for them, that is being published here in the UK and also in the US. They are the publishers of Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic, stylist Selina Lake, and brands like Farrow & Ball and Cabbages & Roses. You can see why I was beyond excited and couldn't wait to get started...

So I set about my new project, writing my first sewing book. I started off by scribbling ideas down, I wrote reams and reams of notes and then I started pulling colour palettes and mood boards together. All of which I will show you here over the next few weeks...

I spent hours making and adjusting patterns for all the projects, putting the pattern skills that I learned at college to the test - I even designed my own range of fabrics for the books which are available in my Spoonflower store now!

I loved putting my new book together and was delighted to be able to work with the fabulous Sussie Bell again, who did all the beautiful photography .

So today I am sharing with you the book cover and letting you know it's on sale at Amazon and all good book stores from the 12th Feb! Stay tuned for an exclusive project from the book and all the behind the scenes info from the book, including mood boards, before and after photos of my guest bedroom that features on the front cover, and craft tutorials on how I made or upcycled the props that feature in the book...
