My cute project for the Spoonful of Sugar Blog Tour

Have you seen Lisa Cox’s new book ‘A Spoonful of Sugar‘ yet? It’s full of adorable projects that I can’t wait to make!

This darling mixer applique reminded me of my daughter Chloe who loves to cook and bake… I’m so glad someone in our family does!

And something she has been wanting for a while is her own apron… so that’s what I made her.

I used my free Father’s Day Apron tutorial but instead of sewing long vertical strips together to make the apron front, I just used a 31” x 33” rectangle of fabric. It was perfect for Lisa’s applique.

And the perfect early birthday present for my Mother’s day baby. Yup, she was born on Mother’s day and her birthday falls on Mother’s day again this year. I love it so much when that happens!

A Spoonful of Sugar is full of beautiful little things to make… it’s one of those sewing books that’s lovely just to pick up and read. My favorite part was going through my stash and scraps finding new fabric combinations inspired by Lisa’s projects.

Lisa would love for you to join her for an Instagram Sew Along from June 1 – August 9. Everyone will be making projects from the book and there will be five rounds – each lasting for two weeks which will give you plenty of time to complete a project or two from the book.  Amy Sinibaldi from Nana Company is the Guest Judge, with fantastic prizes for the winner of each round, plus a Grand Prize Winner, generously sponsored by Alisha from Ministry of Fabric.

You’ll be able to read more the Instagram Sew Along on  on Lisa’s blog, where she just posted this darling Hexi Pincushion Tutorial.
