Book Review of Sew Small by Jennifer Heynen


Ever since I heard about it, I’ve been so excited to get my hands on Jennifer Heynen’s new book Sew Small: 19 little bags, and it’s finally here! Jennifer is the super adorable and talented artist otherwise known as Jennifer Jangles. If you stitched up our Mini Quilt of the Month last month then you already know this because she designed it. 🙂

As soon as I opened the book I was flooded with bright happy projects to sew… so many to choose from!

I picked that adorable tiny backpack pouch in the second row…

It’s the Birdcage Bag, and here’s mine! Since it’s obviously way too small to wear as a backpack (unless you are Barbie – oh, that’s an idea!), it has a wrist strap instead. My Chloe is turning 12 in a week and I’ve hidden this away to give to her.

All of the projects are designed and embellished in the bright and whimsical Jennifer Jangles style, so in addition to 19 little bag patterns, you get tons of inspiration for embellishing everything else you make.

Man, I would love to see her stash of ric rac, pom poms, and other trims, wouldn’t you? I should ask her to send me a picture, lol!

Just a couple more pics of my Birdcage Bag. Wouldn’t you want to brag about something this cute too?

My favorite part might be that turquoise gingham piping, eeek!

Check out Sew Small: 19 little bags on Amazon or wherever you buy books. This is one you’ll definitely want on your shelf! And don’t miss her first book, Stitch Kitch.
