Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

Heather Ross Prints is an innovative craft book from the author of Weekend Sewing (published by STC Craft, 2009). In addition to being a designer and seamstress, Heather is well known for her whimsical illustrations and fabric designs. In fact, her out of print fabrics are often traded by online resellers for ten times their original price. In this book, Heather presents a DVD with the artwork for more than 40 of her most in demand fabrics as well as instructions for 20 craft projects to make with the designs. The disk included with the book will hold hundreds of digital art files, formatted for use in each of the projects. All of the pattern designs will be available as PDFs and any projects that includes personalised wording (such as stationery and notepads) will be available in editable Word Documents. All of the digital files can be printed at home to make paper crafts such as a sea turtle notepad set, a notebook covered with a sweet horse themed print, vibrant floral gift wrap and a decoupage child's stool. Or the designs can be uploaded to websites that print on demand wallpaper and fabrics. Several sewing projects will be included for use with on demand fabric; such as a child's duvet made with race car fabric, a shower curtain covered with swirling mermaids and a silk nightgown with a "Frog Prince" print, which will surely make Heather's Weekend Sewing fans happy. A final chapter on how to create your own artwork using Photoshop will appeal to aspiring fabric designers. The book, however, is intended for the whole DIY community, with something for sewers, decorators, graphic designers, scrapbookers and general crafters. No matter what kind of crafter you are, this book will be a valuable resource with something gorgeous to enjoy on every page.

First of all, let me just say that the CD-rom, which includes some of Heather's most popular patterns, is worth the price of this book alone (and then some).

If that's not enough, there are also NUMEROUS tear-out pages of her prints that you can use to get started crafting right away.

Next, there is a great tutorial on how to make your own prints using Adobe Photoshop, as Heather generously shares her techniques.

Finally, the cornerstone of this book is the long list of inspired projects. I found the paper-based projects to be my favorite, and I can't wait to get started making journals, stationary, notepads, and sketchbooks. The wrapping paper is nice but I am going to take it a step further and print the patterns on heavier cardstock to make fold-together boxes, or use it on printer paper to cover a pre-made box. I also wish there were a template for postcards, which I think would be super cute.

The sewing patterns seem oddly out of place, and I don't think the swim cover-up, apron, chemise or napkins really add anything to the book. You can find these patterns anywhere. The dishtowels work though because Heather sets them up for you to print out a coordinating set of four with monograms- all you have to do is hem- that are perfect for gift-giving! I have to confess though I wouldn't have minded a pattern for the cute skirt she wears in the Introduction.

The book also includes a bamboo tray, wallpaper (lots of possibilities for this when you find out how easy it is to make your own peel-and-stick contact paper), toddler cover and duvet (for boys, but you can make one for girls- Princess and the Pea, perhaps?), rice paper lanterns, shower curtain, childrens' stool, house of cards, votive holders, wall hanging and vinyl-wrapped tablecloth. From some of her earlier blog posts, I thought Heather might include instructions for a belt buckle and t-shirt, but you won't find those here- maybe in the next book?

I literally cannot wait to get started on the book's ideas and the ones that are swimming around in my head. The stationary templates are something I will probably use again and again. Can I use her prints to make mugs? Calendars? I don't know yet but I can't wait to try.

This is the most generous book I have ever seen published. I am only giving it 5 stars because a rating for 100 stars is not available.

Not only does this book contain very highly prized images made available in formats and with permissions that allow for uploading and printing onto multiple substrates, the beautifully presented materials are really inspiring and I am already thinking of ways of designing my own patterns and projects drawing on these materials. The book is a paperback but that is a little misleading -- it's actually a very thick, luxurious cardstock and a large, magazine-sized book. It's more like a heavyweight cousin of a fine art/culture magazine like Cabinet than it is like a regular paperback book. Gorgeous stuff, wonderfully presented, unbeatable price.

Por reviewer2009 - Publicado en Amazon.com

I am a huge fan of Heather Ross, and bought the book sight unseen. It's like being "blinded by the designer label" for fabric geeks. But it does not disappoint! After ripping open the package, I'll admit I was a little bummed that it wasn't a thick, heavy books stuffed with a pocket for patterns and tons and tons of pages. Upon further inspection, it's relatively thin because everything I expected is in the back on a DVD (phew!).

Did I say everything? Yes, everything. (Well, almost. I did not see the Mendocino seahorses available as a .jpg.) The 50+ designs alluded to in the title are 32 .jpg and .pdf images of her previously published and out of print designs, free for you to use. There's a graphic index in the back for you to check and see what you're getting in case you're some kind of freak who would only purchase it for that one fabric and not like the rest. You can upload the images at Spoonflower and have the fabric all over again, or print them professionally as wallpaper, even make stationery out of them. She gives directions on how to do all of these in the projects section of the book. still can't get over how generous (and unprecedented?) this is. Her beloved and out of print fabrics have been going for $20 a fat quarter on Etsy... but no longer. (Now I can stop side-eyeing those gorgeous mermaids in Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson's Supernova Quilt for being out of print and out of reach.)

As for the projects, they are not anything novel. Tea towels, votive holders, nightgown, Mod Podge projects-nothing groundbreaking here. But that's not the point. The point of the projects in the book is to showcase beautiful ways to use her images. It's not called how to sew or make stuff, it's called Heather Ross PRINTS. Here they are, and here's a way to plaster your stuff with them. She's not trying to teach sewing (although there are the perfunctory sewing basics lesson pages, which I suspect the publishers feel obligated to include and nobody in their right mind would use not knowing how to sew in the first place). With that in mind, the projects are all great ideas in terms of beauty, utility, and the right combination of ease and difficulty (nothing intimidating!) Some of the projects you will not be able to create right away. You'll need to pay to create her fabric if you don't have it, or you'll need to purchase the fabric as wallpaper, etc. But most you can - she printed the last dozen or so pages of the book with tear-out sheets of the prints that you can use for, as she suggests, wrapping paper (as if we would waste it on that!) or a decoupage project.

If prints and projects aren't enough, Heather gives a brief tutorial on how to use Photoshop to pencil in and repeat your own designs and talks a bit about what it's like for her as an artist.

Verdict: Buy it if you're a fan of Heather Ross!

I'm a huge Heather Ross fan, so when I found out about this book I immediately pre-ordered it and have been eagerly awaiting it's arrival all summer. It finally came in yesterday's mail and I'm totally smitten by it. First of all, the book is gorgeously produced and the project ideas are really wonderful (I can't wait to make the dishtowels)--but my favorite part is the disc which is included with the book. It is chock-full of Heather's beautiful artwork and she has given all of us folks permission to use it however we'd like. What an incredibly generous gift she has given to us. I've already used the disc to create some very special note cards and my mind has just been spinning with so many other ideas for how to use it. If you like Heather's art and you like to create stuff then you will be sooooooooooo happy with this book. I highly recommend it.
