My book case is about to groan at the sight of these two new additions, I really shouldn't have bought them, but due to my lovely work colleague asking me 'have you seen the book with patterns in it, in the bookshop?' I surely had to go and have a look. Sold! I'd bought the book she told me about and another one that caught my eye too!!
The book my colleague was telling me about was Sew U Home Stretch, the built by Wendy guide to sewing knit fabric! I nearly left it there to have a think about it, then realised it was the only one left on the shelf and as it's about knit fabrics, which is something I know little about, (literally a bikini and a strapless dress that I made when I first started to sew only because I knew stretch fabrics don't't frey!) I just had to have it!
Plus I have this jersey fabric ..........
.... just itching to be made into something. So I'm sure this book will come in handy.
The layout in the book is nicely done and not over cluttered, plus there looks to be lots of hints and tips as well as plenty of inspirational projects and how to's !
Did I mention there's patterns too!!
Only three of them but plenty of adaptations, that will keep me busy for a while.
I also bought the Sewing, Stitching and Textile bible, I was taken by some of the embroidery techniqes and fabric guide. To be honest I probably didn't need this book but something in me just said I had to buy it!!
Please tell me I'm not the only person with a sewing book obsession as big as my fabric one?
