Hi everyone! I hope your weekend went well. I had a blast doing the mini sessions on Saturday. I might have to do it again next year. Today I’m very honored to be a part of The Simple Sewing Blog Tour. Katie Lewis is the author of this great book and blogs over here. I’m so happy for her seeing her dreams come true. It’s always exciting to see bloggers get to write their very own book. Congrats Katie! Today I’m sharing a project I made from the book and you also get a chance to win a copy for yourself too 🙂
Katie was so kind and build up the excitement of us receiving our books with some fun happy mail.
Once I received my book, I knew right away I needed to make the tooth fairy pillow for miss J. She just lost her first tooth the other week, so this will be getting a lot of use in the upcoming months as she loses more.
It was so “simple” to sew up and took literally five minutes. Who doesn’t love projects like that? Seriously. It’s the perfect size for little goodies the tooth fairy might want to leave and they can leave this beside their pillow instead of under making it easier to make the tooth-present switch.
To let you see the variety of projects in this book, here is the list of contents. Katie shares such a large variety of items to make for accessories, the home, celebrations, baby, school items, and toys. I loved how she categorized them. It makes it easy to pick a project depending on what you need. The book is super easy to follow and reads very well. The instructions all have pictures with them too so you can see exactly what you are suppose to be doing if you need to see it.
I have a few other must makes on my list for Christmas gifts next. I plan on making the toy camera for a stocking stuff for miss E.
And I want to make a bunch of these headbands for myself and family members! Isn’t it so cute? I really recommend this book if you are new to sewing or teaching a younger one to sew. It would even be great for a seasoned sewer just to have all the patterns on hand. Sure beats making your own patterns all the time. Plus, all you creative people can easily add your own spin on these to make them personal (you know, like add some embroidery or what not). Now for the giveaway! It’s real easy to enter. We are using rafflecopter for this one. Just sign in and do what you need to do and a winner will be chosen soon and contacted by Katie. Also note, it is only open to US residents.
