Sew-licious Little Things
Following on from her beautiful book “Sewlicious,” Kate Haxell brings you 35 gorgeous projects that are all filled with simple charm. They are inspired by zakka, a Japanese term for finding beauty in the ordinary, and for objects that have meaning and bring happiness to their owner. Discover how to make homeware items to brighten up your living space, from a mug cozy and oven gloves to a bookmark and a hot water bottle. There are also all different kinds of bags, such as totes, purses, and washbags, as well as cases for your most used things—mobile phone, e-reader, keys. Plus, find out ways to make your crafting area more beautiful, including a sewing machine cover, knitting yarn holder, and pencil case. This inspirational sewing book is practical, teaching you all you need to know, while gorgeous photography and step-by-step artworks make it colourful and stylish—just like the projects themselves.
