This past Saturday, I hurried down Passyunk Avenue to acclimate my best pal with the adorable kitsch and charm of my new favorite local shop, JimmyStyle. With goodies perfect for sprucing up the home, body, and baby (let’s face it, they’re pretty boring on their own), and a sweet gray shop cat that contributes to my decision that the shop is, indeed, a favorite, JimmyStyle carefully creates whimsy in its bright, welcoming space. They also provide a perfect environment for artists and authors to showcase their creations, which writer/stylist/craft lady Kayte Terry demonstrated the second we stepped in the door. Kayte set up shop at Jimmystyle this weekend for the release and signing of her second book, Appliqué Your Way – a hands-on guide to all things “reborn, recycled and repurposed.” With step-by-step illustrations, photographs and patterns for over 35 projects, all packed into a lay-flat wire-bound book (with a pocket for templates! So clever!), Kayte’s book will teach you how to revamp everything from skirts to scarves.

To accompany the book’s debut, Kayte lead a DIY workshop, created spectacular wall art to display at the shop (it’s for sale, people!) and developed kits (in conjunction with her adorably crafty mom) with everything you need to make one of the book’s projects, a felt ornament.

Check out her book and art, on sale and ready for perusing this month at Jimmystyle. And send my regards to the cat.

Appliqué Your Way, published by Chronicle Books, is available for $19.95. The craft kit is $22 and makes 3 ornaments.
