Sew Fun: Book review and giveaway!


Hi sewing friends! This is Sarah from Blue Susan Makes signing on to share a fun sewing book with you today. Sew Fun by Deborah Fisher just came out from Interweave Press and you can find out more about it {here}. This book is just what the title says, SEW FUN… full of sewing projects to make with your family.

One of my favorite things about this book is that it has tips on how the let your kids help with the creating on each project as well as a section that teaches YOU how to have FUN sewing with children.

My copy of Sew Fun arrived on St. Patrick’s Day. We had some down time after school and my son asked if he could make a leprechaun…with the sewing machine. “Actually” I said, “I just got a book in the mail today that has a pattern we could use to make one” And that’s just what we did. We got straight to work putting together a leprechaun using the Fun Friends from Odds and End pattern.

We trimmed the skirt points to make his body more rectangular and added on some yarn for a beard. My son did all the fabric choosing and sewing up until it came time to put the whole thing together. We’re pretty proud of our accomplishment.

I also couldn’t resist sewing up some cute Little Smiles Bunnies. Just in time for Easter! They are small just, 7 inches tall. The perfect size to slip into an Easter basket or into the curious hands of our newest little cousin.

Sew Fun also has other amazing projects from dolls and art quilts to play accessories and funny feet slippers. 

Next on our to do list is this Topsy Turvy Story Quilt where you turn your child’s artwork into simple appliques.

Now you can have a little fun too because we get to give a copy away to one lucky reader.  Just leave a comment below to enter. Tell us who you your favorite person to sew with is… can’t wait to hear! 

This giveaway will end on Monday March 31st at 10:00 pm Eastern, the same day that our Patchwork Bags Craftsy class giveaway ends too… enter both to be doubly lucky. 🙂

Happy Sewing!
