I am very excited to announce that my Star Trek inspired Tricorder purse design, including a full pattern, tutorial, and my personal “log”, have been published in The Star Trek Craft Book: Make It So! by Angie Pedersen which was released April 30th, 2013. The official description from the publisher:

Whether you’re a “Trekker in Training” or a seasoned craft whiz, you’ll find a project in these pages to pique your interest.These fun, quirky, and even practical crafts range from accessories to décor to toys. Boldly experiment with a variety of crafting projects, including crochet, sewing, embroidery, felting, and much more. Each project is ranked according to complexity and skill level—from Ensign to Admiral—and accompanied by easy to follow instructions and photos. Full of Star Trek facts and imagery, crafty tips, and fun, The Star Trek Craft Book is perfect for Star Trek fans and enterprising crafters alike.
The book is widely available (including Amazon and Chapters/Indigo) if you wanted to check it out for yourself! There are many interesting crafts from other contributors and all kinds of cool facts and images from the franchise. What a great experience! I would love to be involved in more projects like this in the future.
