Recently, Susan A. of Arizona gave me this beautiful new book Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts by Martha Stewart.
As a quilter, and lover of all things hand-made, I was drawn in to every chapter.
Martha really got it right with this book.
With over 150 projects, a CD is included that provides patterns and templates that can be printed at home. Isn't that a great idea? That left the 400 pages free for beautiful photography.
There is a section for setting up a sewing area.
Tips on fabrics, threads,sewing supplies, and basic techniques.
Literally everything from A to Z. Animals, aprons, bags to slippers, table linens, upholstery and wall decor.
Be still my heart.
On page 241 there is a tutorial for making a covered-button boutonniere.
