Boy, it's been a busy morning! I had a cookie exchange, dropped Lily off at kindergarten, then went to the dollar store. I've finally had a chance to sit at my computer for the first time all day!
To start things off this late Thursday morning, I'm thrilled to offer a copy of Sew Liberated: 20 Stylish Projects for the Modern Sewist to one lucky Grosgrain reader!
Perfect for that crafty friend or yourself!
Meg McElwee (pictured at bottom) teaches you how to transform your sewing by adding personal touches with appliqué details and other handwork.
Check out my personal review here.
Take your sewing skills to the next level with projects ranging from the beginner's Heirloom Duvet Cover to the advanced Capture the Moment Camera Bag.
McElwee's background as an early childhood educator stands out in the inspired section on sewing for children, which features a chef's hat and apron, an artist's smock, a blanket baby carrier and more.
Step-by-step sewing project instructions, color photographs and illustrations, and comprehensive how-to appliqué and embroidery instructions make Sew Liberated an all-in-one resource and guide. Sew Liberated provides you with all levels of new techniques, creative challenges, and a full range of projects ranging in difficulty and time commitment.
