Amy Sedaris, Textile Designer

Comedian, actress, and now, fabric designer? Why not! Funny lady Amy Sedaris’ collaboration with American company Windham Fabrics adds a punch of playful to our dreary winter months. This isn’t Amy’s first venture into the world of craft — her newest book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People (2011 Grand Central Publishing) is enough to convince me that she knows what she’s doing!

Her collection, called I Like You, is available this month. Quirky, graphic and candy-coloured, this line is emblazoned with Amy’s offbeat personality and sense of humour.

And while you lounge on your handmade Amy Sedaris pouf (you crafty sewer, you!), have a laugh with Amy’s other book, also named I Like You (2008 Grand Central Publishing).
