"Sweetly Stitched Handmades" includes 18 original designs that incorporate Amy Sinibaldi s love for patchwork and embroidery, natural linen, and a carefully chosen color palette of patterns and prints. The projects range in difficulty so that a beginning sewer may easily complete a few projects from start to finish, while others are more difficult and a more advanced sewer may be challenged to learn some new techniques. Projects include a color-block baby quilt, a crayon-castle caddy, a jam-jar pincushion, an airmail tote bag, and a simple Home Sweet Home embroidery."
"Cute, chic and so now. Everyone who loves to sew and loves patchwork will adore the projects in this book. I love the bear cushion, the tote bag, crayon caddies and quilts. Aimed at babies but easy to alter a little for someone older. For the home there are accessories such as coasters, mats, mug rugs and my absolute favourite project I ve seen this year fabric boxes. More home makes include a pouch, tote, hanger and cushion. It s sort of Tone Finnanger meets Zakka style. There are 18 projects in all, and they all have great charm. Nicely photographed and easy to follow instructions." yarnsandfabrics.co.uk"
