My blog friend Katie, from The Red Kitchen, wrote a book!
I have been following along while Katie went through all of the book writing stages (via instagram) so I was so excited when I finally got my hands on a copy! Just as I expected… I love it! It’s a beginner’s sewing book but I have been sewing for years and I would make a ton of these projects. The pictures are very clean and simple. She has very clear written instructions but they are almost not necessary because there are step-by-step pictures for all the projects. My favorite part of the book is the layout. She has it broken into sections that just make sense. I have a long list of “to-do’s” after reading it :) You can find the book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books & Things.
For my first project I made some placemats. They were almost too easy to even call a project.
I used my gold polkadot burlap because I thought it would be festive yet neutral for the holidays.
I followed Katie’s directions perfectly but for the top stitching I used a zig-zag stitch for extra security for that burlap.
I’m really excited to break these in this week!
The best part is that Katie is giving away a copy to a lucky reader! Follow the directions on the Rafflecopter Below. Open to US Residents only.
*I was given a copy of this book for an honest review :)
