I love to write book reviews. Probably because I'm such an intense combination of craft geek & book nerd. (I love my crafts and I love my books!)
Rarely, though, does a book make my heart race in the same way that it does every time I open my copy of Growing up Sew Liberated: making handmade clothes + projects for your creative child.
The photos are dreamy and gorgeous, but it's the projects that really speak to my racing heart. This book is full pdf patterns and instructions to make all of the things that my daughters want. And, not only are the patterns included in the back, but the author (Meg McElwee of the Sew Liberated blog) describes in detail how to perform each step in creating the projects.
Here are just some of the adorable projects:
I really love practically every single project in this book, and I know that my little girls will, too! To read more about the book and its author, check out the Growing Up Sew Liberated Blog Tour. To purchase, visit Interweave's online book store.
If you're new to sewing and are worried that this book might be a little bit over your head, check out Sewing Studio with Diana Rupp. It's an online sewing class that takes you through all you need to know to get started sewing.
