Sunday Sews: 20 Inspired Weekend Projects
Is it Sunday yet? Sunday Sews is a gorgeous, atmospheric sewing book presenting 20 easy-breezy wearables and home accessories that can be made in a weekend. The stylishly simple designs incorporate basic techniques and unfussy lightweight fabrics, offering a refreshing, less-is-more approach to weekend crafting. An introductory section presents basic sewing techniques and overviews of fabrics and tools, plus more challenging sewing tips and tricks that go beyond the basics to expand the sewer's skill set. Projects are accompanied by step-by-step instructions, helpful diagrams and illustrations, and starkly elegant styled photography. One project can be made on the spot using the printed pattern sheet tucked into the book's back flap. (All other patterns can be downloaded from a Chronicle-hosted website and conveniently printed on the reader's home printer.) Clean, uncluttered, and oh-so-inspiring, Sunday Sews evokes everything we love about the most relaxing day of the week.
