How to make Zines Zine - or a swift kick in the pants to get me going
When I saw the title, I couldn't help myself. How to Make your very own Zine! (it's super easy), by Casey Bradley.
I even got a little hand drawn picture on my envelope. It made me smile!
This zine is exactly as promised, a little booklet about how to make more little booklets. It's full of useful information, awesome drawings (I just adore the drawings), and a swift kick in the pants for me to stop procrastinating and get back to work on my own poor efforts.
All these tools just to make one little zine. I don't know. (shakes head in a bemused fashion, at self)
I was procrastinating because, I'm way earlier than I said I would be (last week of each month isn't for ages yet) and because I wasn't confident I could sew fabric swatches onto paper with my old machine. Oh me of little faith. The machine thought nothing of it and the only complaint it made was that I waited so long to play with it.
April's Crowing Hen Guide to Household Management is Finished! It's all about washing fabrics, yarn, &c., by hand. It's a bit more text heavy than I would have liked, but I make up for that by not adding as many terrible line drawings as normal. :)
