Book Review of ‘Stitch Love’ by Mollie Johanson


Last month Cadie came to me with this book she found on my shelf and begged to sew this little ‘chicken’ for a friend, lol. Okay the bird is really a ‘Kiwi’ and the book is Stitch Love by Mollie Johanson.

It’s a darling book full of 25 adorable things to sew and endearing hand embroidery patterns that I have had every intention of reviewing for you for a while now. But I hate reviewing a book without actually making something from it. So thanks to Cadie here it is!

I Love it! And you will too if you love sweet little things to do with felt and embroidery. Most of the projects are probably above the skill level of a child, but Cadie had so much confidence that she could make that ‘chicken,’ I decided to help her through it.

Bonus: Lark Crafts provides a link in the book so you can download full size versions of the pattern templates for free. Otherwise you’ll have to copy and enlarge most of them, which is standard for most craft books.


She had her first lesson on hand embroidery. It took a lot of patience on my part, lol.

But we made it! You can browse Stitch Love here on Amazon.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
