Unique and personal, handmade gifts are the presents everyone loves to get. There's something more special about a gift that reflects your personality, time, energy, and love. Even when time and energy are scarce, Simple Gifts to Stitch shows you how to craft a one-of-a-kind gift in a single afternoon.
Sewing star Jocelyn Worrall relies on simple, intuitive techniques that provide elegant results for beginners and experts alike. She'll show you how to create unique gifts--from sophisticated to funky--by taking a fresh approach to working with fabrics as diverse as linen, oilcloth, and even rickrack. The variety of projects in Simple Gifts to Stitch allows you to tailor each gift to your time frame and tastes, with ideas for every occasion:
- For birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions, you'll find special creations such as a fanciful botanical tiara or an elegant beaded silk wrap, as well as ideas for stitching your own gift wrap.
- For housewarming gifts or host gifts, Jocelyn offers a variety of easily made necessities for the home, including a striped duvet cover, sculptural place mats, and--for the perfect hostess--a modern apron.
- For babies and children, Jocelyn shows you how to stitch up gifts for every age, from cute terrycloth toys to a fleece imp hat with matching mittens.
Some of the projects are super simple while others are a little more challenging, but you'll want to make all of them more than once. Plus, Jocelyn has a wealth of inspirational ideas and expert advice, so your finished product is guaranteed to look like it took longer than just one afternoon to make.
With Simple Gifts to Stitch, you'll never be left wondering where to find a meaningful gift--you'll make it yourself
