Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects
This year, delight your pals with a present you created yourself or gift them with materials for handiwork-to-be. It doesn't take much to get making! Here's a few of my tried-and-true faves and a few from the wishlist.
If you're a fan of classic patterns and love the look of vintage sheets, check out these sweet packs of pre-cut prints from LA-based sewing and crafting workshop Home Ec. Ten different 18"x22" fat quarters (a phrase which refers to the squat, square-ish shape of the piece as opposed to a longer strip) come in each collection, each one pretty perfect for adding a splash of color to any artsy project. And if you're down in LA, stop by the shop or pop in for a class!
