Sew Darn Cute : 30 Sweet and Simple Projects to Sew and Embellish
Simple sewing techniques and quick yet stylish projects combine in this appealing book. Use surface embellishment techniques including applique and embroidery to transform plain tees or old linens into pretty and unique signature items like a pillowcase purse or a skinny summer scarf; create loveable critters or a set of crafty coasters from scrap fabric and felted sweaters; or clean up the clutter in your craft room with easy-to-sew organisers for your crochet hooks, knitting needles, pins, and more. A focus on using vintage and thrifted, repurposed fabrics shows readers how they can whip up unique sewing projects that are also easy on the planet (and on your wallet). The projects include: monogrammed baby tee; fabric button necklace; square bear; patchwork travel pillow; customised cardigan; nifty needle book.
