I am more than excited to share with you a wonderful collaboration that I was able to join in on.
Caroline of SewCanShe gathered together an incredible group of sewers who put together the book- Crafty Little Things to Sew.
I’ve never been apart of a collaboration together for a book, so this was really super fun to watch the process and anticipate the outcome.
The book is beautiful and the outcome couldn’t be better.
Because this wasn’t Caroline’s first book, her knowledge of the process was a great help.
The waiting is over…and now the fun begins.
Crafty Little Things to Sew
Adorable must-have items to sew in a session or two . . . even if you’re a total beginner!
Start a project—and finish on the very same day! From pouches and totes to baskets, these clever and crafty little things will make you feel like a superhero stitcher.
20 projects include a quilty first-aid kit, cute magnets, headbands and hair baubles, travel iron mats, and more.
Many are made with fat quarters of fabric.
Beginners will find so many pictures, diagrams, and tips that they’ll feel like the author is right there beside them.
Project designers include the author and:
Becky Jorgensen (Patchwork Posse)
Virginia Lindsay (Gingercake Patterns)
Jennifer Heynen (The Beginning Fabrics / Jennifer Jangles)
Sarah Markos (Blue Susan Makes: bluesusanmakes.blogspot.com)
Heidi Staples (Fabric Mutt: fabricmutt.blogspot.com)
Tessa Walker (The Sewing Chick: thesewingchick.blogspot.com)
Christina Roy (2littlehooligans.com)
The project that I submitted and was lucky to have included in the collection was the:
Snappy Supply Case
finished size: 10 1/2″ X 7″
My original one features the screen mesh, the book has clear plastic. Either works great for those pockets that keep closed with a measuring tape snap.
The one side has an additional open pocket and the other has a pincushion, scissor holder and needle keeper. Great for projects on the go!
The closure is a simple strap with a button closure.
I am thrilled with how it turned out.
This book and the layout is super simple and great for any style of sewer.
There are more than enough helps to get you started including a full section on supplies, how to’s, tips, hints and more. This definitely helps your project come out right from start to finish.
There are many pictures as well– no half shots of projects that leave you wonderful what’s really happening in the back corner that wasn’t explained well enough. (you know what I’m talking about).
Along with the pictures the book steps are laid out in pictures style.
Pictures speak a thousand words and having them in a book along with the written steps is so helpful.
