The Norwegian Knitting, Crocheting, Sewing and Hobby Magazine, created in collaboration with designer Tine Solheim, is now available as an App in English. Yes, I do know it well not because I have designed for it, but because I have translated it from Norwegian to English. Here is a presentation of it:
“Made By Me (MbyM) bursts with hundreds of “mega-cool” ideas and patterns designed to ignite your creative spirit. For those who have a passion for runway fashion, fibers, fine furnishings, or fabrics, buttons and beads; for those of you who are driven to express yourself by creating something by hand, something uniquely you, MbyM feeds your need with elegantly photographed, hand-crafted projects you can make yourself.
Inspired by high fashion designers, the knitted jackets, sweaters, scarves and more step from the catwalk onto your tablet. The latest trends in knitwear for children through adults, from cute to glamorous, pour from the screen. MbyM sparks your imagination with the vibrant color and texture of the finest yarns, ribbons and trims, stitched into garments to wear or cozies, cushions, blankets and bolsters for your home. Lace and sequins, velvet and gold, are crafted into the trendiest jewelry and accessories. World acclaimed designers share their insights and artistic visions.
MbyM stirs you to discover yourself and your creativity. Each edition is accompanied by printable patterns and information for sourcing materials. Visit our MbyM Facebook page and website for additional support. (mbymmagazine.com)
Newly translated for the US, MbyM is the epub of MadebyMe, the popular Norwegian creative publication launched in 2011.”
