Celebrate National Sewing Month!
This entry was posted on September 27, 2012.
September's flying by, and National Sewing Month is almost over. Have you celebrated sewing yet this month? Indulge yourself by adding the ultimate sewing guide to your inspiration library — Donna Kooler’s Encyclopedia of Sewing!
Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Sewing is a must for everyone who sews, no matter what your skill level. In the elegant style of Kooler Design Studio's previous encyclopedias, these 240 pages are wonderfully filled with the history of sewing, basic techniques, custom details, quilting, home decor, and embellishments. Also included are garment techniques with small-scale practice patterns, and 12 projects by top designers, with something for every skill level. Projects include a retro apron, mixed-media purse, simple skirt, embroidered quilt, and casual jacket, among others. Beautiful photography and easy-to-follow techniques make this a required addition to any sewing library.
Take a look at some of my favorites from the pretty projects you’ll find in this fabulous sewing guide:
Bohemian Bag (Fun! I'm such a bag lady...)
Singing Canary Pillow (Sew, so cute!)
Scrappy Cottage Quilt
Aprons! (I love aprons…)
Tropical Table Runner
Berry Pie Pincushion (I’m sort of obsessed with pincushions…)
Let It Rain Yellow Slicker (Loving the idea of sewing your own raincoat!)
