Sewing for Girls
This came with perfect timing as I was up sewing a little girls dress until 1am last night determined to get the idea of a reversible pinafore dress working! (more to come on this later!)
Why do I love sewing books? Well this book cost me $26 from The Book Depository It comes with 21 patterns inside. That is just $1.23 per pattern. Why would I want to spend $18 on one pattern if I can get a whole book of them?
I am not totally against individual patterns, but if you are new to sewing you will find plenty of inspiration in books like these without risking buying 1 pattern and it not quite working out how you had planned.
This book looks great, I cannot wait to get started! (Even though I have 2 boys! My friends with girls will benefit!) The projects inside include:
4 Dress patterns
Headbands, Bags, Quilt, Memory Board, Barrette, Pillows and much more!
The book depository has 25% off this book at the moment, and it has free worldwide delivery. If you don't have a paypal or visa card, just send me an email and I can order one for you.
We are moving house tomorrow, I am SEW excited to be getting my very own Sew Pretty study/room. I see wall to ceiling shelves coming in! So if I am a bit slow on replying to your messages please bear with me until we are settled in!
Oh and do please keep sending pictures in of what you have been working on! It makes my day!
