My “Neven Been Stitched” Projects and Giveaway

Remember in the last 10 on 10 post I shared about how I was able to contribute to a book that is now out and saw it on the shelves at a local bookstore? Well here it is! It is called Never Been Stitched and was put together by the wonderful Amanda Carestio. She was so fun to work with and has many projects in this book, but there are also a bunch more designers who participated with projects. The book is comprised of 45 no-sew and low-sew projects, so it’s a good book to get especially for those who are looking for easy cute projects to make.

The above picture shows my two contributions. I created a low-sew rug and my no sew tunic that you might have seen on my blog a few years back. That shirt is actually how Amanda found me believe it or not. And I am so very glad that she did!

The book is full of quite a variety of projects and are organized into 5 main categories: Wear, Decorate, Play, Carry, and Give. There are templates for all of the projects needed, most of which are actual size and a few that would need enlargement. I have quite a few pages bookmarked for things I want to make soon.

I’m super happy that I also get to give away a copy to one of you! Awesome I know. It’s open to US residents only and one winner will be chosen using rafflecopter. Enter away! And be sure to look for it on your next trip to the bookstore :)

    Jessica, I’m a long time follower and love to see your creativity! I have tried a couple of projects but my daughter has especially enjoyed the stuffies that your little girl draws and creates. I love projects that bring us together!

    i am new to crafting and am trying a little bit of everything. i guess right now my favorite thing is crocheting, though i don’t know much yet. i am currently trying to teach myself how to crochet, tunisian crochet, sew/quilt. i have been making general crafts: wreaths, holiday decorations, etc. i have made jewelry. but there are SO many things i want to try: quilling, chainmaille, embroidery, polymer clay, knitting, painting, etc, etc!!

    Jessica, you are so creative, and I love reading your blog and seeing all the great things you do! Thanks for always taking the time to write back when I write you a simple note. You are an inspiration! Oh, and to answer the question. I like to crochet, sew, draw, do genealogy research, spend time with my family, and play the piano. (Not in that order!)

      Well aren’t you the sweetest! I do try :) Although I’m not always the best at responding. Hearing that makes me want to step up in that area :)

    This book looks like so much fun to flip through! I suppose if I had to pick a ‘favorite’ craft, it would be illustration. I have been loving watercolors lately. (Does that even count as a craft?)

    My favorite craft is scrapbooking. I prefer sewing but always get discouraged by the result, but am happier with the results of my scrapbooking. I love your blog, this book looks amazing.

      It says to use woool or wool-blend felt. That would help keep it sturdy for all the use of pulling the pencils out and pulling them back in.
