All I can say is, WHEW.
I’ve been working on a crafty ebook for, oh, a hundred years, and am happy to report that it’s finally launched!
This one’s called Weaving Un-Loomed, and it’s all about – you guessed it – alternative ways to weave. You don’t need any prior experience, or any special equipment. It’s a collection of five projects, which are pictured all over this post.

This was such a fun project to do, because I was able to make it exactly the kind of craft book I like best – lots of step-by-step photos, really detailed instructions, and diverse projects. It ended up being a far huger project than I’d thought, but what a great learning experience!

…And then, because it’s digital and I’m the boss of me, I also set it up iTunes-style, as my dear friend Rachel would call it. So each project is available as a separate tutorial, or you can get the whole ebook.

It’s really interesting, thinking about the ways a digital craft book can actually be more useful than a print one. I’ll always love real paper craft books, of course, but it’s also great to have the flexibility to print out just the pages I need, and keep them with the project-in-progress.
I don’t have to fumble to hold a craft book open on my lap, and if I spill glue on the pages, no worries – I can reprint them.
One of these days, I’ll do a podcast about the differences between print and digital craft-book-publishing.
Although, to help people conserve toner, I included a printer-friendly instruction sheet with each projects. So you can enjoy the colorful photo instructions on the screen, and then print a set of simple text instructions to carry with you for crafting.
I’m dying to know what you all think of this bad boy!
You can find everything in my shop. And I hope you won’t mind my saying this: if you enjoy this blog and podcast, and want to support them, your purchase of a tutorial or ebook is absolutely huge, and deeply appreciated.

Plus, I set up one project as a free download for y’all. Come and get it!
