We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful crating books arrive at our office, and we love to share the creativity found within their covers. In the summer issue of Create & Decorate (click HERE to peek into the issue and click HERE to order a copy) Noelle shared her review of the book All Sewn Up. We thought you would enjoy another colorful look into the book, and then offer you a chance to enter our giveaway to own the copy!
All Sewn Up: 35 exquisite projects using applique, embroidery, and more
by Chloe Owens, CICO Books
Reviewed by Noelle A. DeMarco
Chloë Owens is a bona-fide creative soul. You’ll see that with just a quick flip-through of the colorful pages of her book. Inspired by the colors and fabrics of the 1960s, you won’t be able to keep from smiling as you read.
Toss that boring old computer case you’ve been using and make a Lush and Lavish Laptop Cover instead. A sweet Butterfly Catcher Pillow is a fun addition to any children’s room, and some Funky Fabric Flowers create a bouquet that will last a lifetime. Throw a tea party with your best friends—the Fly-Away-Umbrella Tea Cozy’s whimsical design will create the most inviting tea table.
The instructions are straightforward, and you can use any fabrics that make you happy. There are technique and supply guides to help beginners or refresh the pros. All the templates you need are included, so grab some supplies and get started!
