Few people realize the indelible mark that crafting in general—and sewing in particular—have made on science fiction as a genre. Building on the success of the original work, Make It Sew: Crafting Lessons from Science Fiction scours the history of popular and obscure science fiction to find and analyze the best patterns from the textile arts.

Early Praise for Make It Sew:

 
I was at my wit’s end when little Timmy asked me to help him with his cosplays, but now thanks to Make it Sew I know I’m using the very cuts and fabrics that changed the face of science fiction.  Timmy couldn’t be happier, and his Leia Slave costume couldn’t fit any better.
Betty Womack
from Lands Ford, Indiana
 
This season its all about futuristic fabrics and forward-thinking colors for your home and wardrobe. From fur-lined Barbarella bedrooms to form-fitting imperial blast armor, Make It Sew is the inspiration behind my brand new sci-fi product line.
 
It’s not Science fiction, it’s Science Fashion, people. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get crafting.  Sew. Say. We. All.
Laura Roslin
President of the Colonies

Credit where credit is due:

  • Han Sewlo is holding a Star Wars quilt actually made by RobinLovesQuilting. Check it out on her blog.
  • Leeloo did not knit that herself. It’s from Dorothy Perkins.
  • Picard is working on a sampler straight from the hilarious Subversive Cross Stitch, specifically the “Bitch, Please” kit. Go buy one, because awesome.
