Have I got a fun giveaway for you today. Gooseberry Patch has teamed up with Sixth and Spring to bring you…..
It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned seamstress or a novice like me, there is something in here for everyone. Do you like to embroider, appliqué? Well then you’ll like this book too. Plenty of projects for everyone.
For fun I decided to recruit my BFF Kathy to help me out. (She rocks when it comes to sewing.) We each picked a project and went to work.
I chose the Denim Placemats (because I finally came to grips that I’m not going to get back in my “skinny” jeans. But that’s another blog post. *smile*)
These were “sew” easy to make. Get it? *cough* But seriously they were. I decided to add my own special touches to the placemats to show you that the projects in here are totally adaptable to your taste and style.
In the book it called for measuring. Ugh, I hate measuring, so I just took one of my old placemats, laid it on my jeans and cut around it. I know, genius!
Another thing I loved about this project is it only required a pair of jeans to make (assuming you have sewing materials already.)
This is what your jeans will look like when you’re done. The project utilizes most of it, which I love.
Here I have my pieces cut out and placed where they will go when it’s time to sew them on.
I also added binding around the edge for a more finished look. The options are endless on this.
I had fun playing around with different plates and napkins. Match the buttons and binding to fit your decor’. Have fun with it.
As you can see I used a different color binding on the other placemat to switch it up a bit. You gotta make it your own. Color outside the lines sometimes. But all in all these took no time to make. Such a fun and quick project.
Now my BFF made the apron you see on the cover of the book. She used fabric she already had and went to town.
I think it came out beautifully, don’t you?
She gathered the pocket a little so you could put things in there easily. I’m thinking it would make a great clothespin apron.
Need more convincing that you may want this book? Here are a few of the other projects you can find in it.
