    WOW. I am seriously impressed. And covetous.

    Once upon a time, maybe, I could have sweated something like this out, like you, angsting over every stitch. But I detest zippers. Used to put them in by hand, because I hated doing them on the machine so much. (Back when my machine wasn’t under the sink in the son’s bathroom) Oh well.

    Yes, I would need VERY detailed instructions too. And about a week.

    This is lovely! What a great friend you have in Jane.


    Can you give us step-by-step of how you did and supplies needed?

    Holy F! I would totally buy one if she sold them because I don’t even have marginal sewing skills to follow detailed directions.

    Between Jane and her husband, they have absolutely awesome creative, artistic and practical skillz. They need to have a show on HGTV or DIY. Instant huge success.

    Love the color combo. Jane is seriously a genius. She’s also, seriously, an awesome friend.

    I would attempt this, someday, even with my very elementary sewing skillz, because it just looks awesome! And practical. If Jane was nice enough to post instructions with pictures… Pretty please, Jane?

    Hmm. I am getting some Amy Butler fabric in and maybe I’ll make a wallet for myself and post instructions.

    I like Amy Butler fabric. Just sayin’ 😛 You should post instructions, it’s a fabulous wallet.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
