A Spoonful of Sugar
By

Rating
This sewing book, chalk full of projects sewists will truly want to make, speaks to the zakka style. Each project graduates in difficulty to build sewing skills and teach a number of different techniques -- including patchwork, simple raw edge applique, sashiko, candlewick embroidery, crochet, and ribbons/trim embellishment. Most projects can be completed in an afternoon to appeal to the busy, modern sewists. Savvy items are practical to use around the home but attractive enough give as gifts.
