It's time for the Crafty Little Things to Sew blog hop! I'm so excited to share with you a closer look at the projects in my new book - and give you 10 chances to win your own copy! Crafty Little Things to Sew has just been released - and at the perfect time for holiday sewing. This book has you covered with sewing gifts for just about everyone on your list.
When I seriously decided to make Crafty Little Things to Sew (the book) happen, I asked a bunch of my favorite bloggers for their most clever ideas. I sorted through all the emails that I got and picked 12 amazing projects. Then I set to work designing 8 more that would round out the perfect sewing book of crafty and useful items.
So now I get to start off this blog hop by sharing the 8 sewing projects that I designed. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom (but not too fast!) for your chance to win one of 2 books that I'm giving away. Then come back and check every day over the next couple of weeks because I will add links to all the other designers in our blog hop. Everyone else is giving away a book too for a total of 10 chances to win!
The Circle Zip Shopping tote folds up and tucks into it's own (attached) zipper pocket when you're not using it!
The Crafty Biz Apron has pockets all around - plus a hidden zipper pocket under the waistband for cash or receipts.
This Easy Wallet has a ton of pockets for cards and cash too!
Sew beautiful (and reversible) barstool cushions for your kitchen with my easy to follow instructions.
My Zip Flat Lunch Tote (probably my favorite project of all!) unzips on the sides to make a handy lunch mat. Eat anywhere!
And iron anywhere with my fold-up iron mats. They have insulated batting inside to protect your counter or table - and I share how to make 2 different sizes.
This kid sized backpack is super easy - plus it unbuttons on the sides to get just a bit bigger on the inside when needed.
An apron is the perfect gift! Use my simple pattern and 2 of your favorite fabrics to make this easy and sweet apron with pockets. I even show you how to make your own bias binding for matching trim and ties.
Check back below every day as I add each blogger in the blog hop (I'll put thumbnails and direct links to their posts). Then scroll a bit further for your chance to win one of the two books that I'm giving away! Good luck!
