We’ve arranged the projects in this book according to size, smallest to largest, and most can be completed in an afternoon. We run you through what you’ll need to get started.
Notions + Trims
Learning to make your own notions and trims means you will always have what you need on hand when you start a project. These seven projects will have you well on your way.
What can you make with an 8-inch square swatch? Quite a lot, it turns out, from herbal sachets to toys to adorable mini purses. We think you’ll swoon over these six projects.
Fat Quarter Projects
We love sewing for friends. It allows us to empty our houses and craft at the same time—plus, who on earth does not like presents? Here are eight projects that make excellent gifts.
Step it up a bit with a few simple projects that use a yard of fabric! These eight projects are sure to brighten up your home in fun and clever ways.
We promise, there is no reason to be intimidated by huge swaths of fabric. By the end of this section of five projects, you’ll wonder why you ever worried in the first place.
