Crafty Book Review: Made by Me
I recently ordered a copy of the book, Made by Me by Jane Bull. I ordered it hoping it would give me some good ideas to use with the sewing classes for children that I teach from my home. I was NOT disappointed. This is a true piece of eye candy. The photos, graphics, and layout are so charming and adorable. I loved poring over every page. I was happy to see that it does contain some ideas that I would not have thought of otherwise. I like how in addition to straight-up sewing projects, it also includes ideas for embroidery, needlepoint, and knitting. It's giving me lots of ideas for a Needle Arts camp I'm hoping to offer this summer. I highly recommend this book.
NOTE: If you are looking for projects that will appeal to boys, I have to say that this book is much more geared to girls. I'm excited that I have some boys signed up for Sewing Club this semester though. I'll be posting about our projects soon at Walnut Hill Studio.
