Some new things on the bookshelf today! The Petite Pattern Series and Free Style Scraps are wonderful books for inspiration and for practical use. The Petite Pattern books come with a cd of all the artwork for use in your projects and English instructions on how to make seamlessly tiled patterns. Free Style Scraps are full of fun and useful clipart.
The Spring & Summer edition is particularly gorgeous. Stay tuned for some sample patterns from inside the book.
