My dear friend Kerry Goulder has written a sweet book that is quite lovely, enchanting and full of fun whimsical characters, and projects galore. She has asked me to review her book and give you all the good deets on why you need to get your very own copy!!! For one, you can create creativity for your children by sewing such fun characters!
Look at these charming forest friends!
This cute Moses Basket would be adorable for a little girl to have during quiet time, traveling in the car, or even just while you are in church. I remember having one as a little girl.
So the project I chose to sew for today's post is the Sew and Go Project bag, in the child's size so I could use Heather Bailey's fat quarters from Lottie Da that were given to us by Free Spirit. Here is a picture of what was in the book in the size small.
The instructions were easy to follow with clear images. I even quilted my front with low loft batting. It was quite fun to put this little bag together.
Even though it's the child size, I think it's perfect for taking my cross stitch or needle work projects with me in the car. Next time i will probably do smaller handles. I chose to go 20", but I would probably do 14" next time.
Here is the side view, so you can see that it has a 4" base.
Here's the other side. I think it turned out quite fun and cute! Another detail I liked in the book is the tools section, and why she uses certain tools for certain projects.
I loved using number 6, the Quick Turn Tool by Dritz. I would totally get it. It's worth every penny.The tool made it a quick and snappy in turning those strap handles! I will be making more from this book, and I'm planning on making some of the woodland characters very soon.
I would completely reccommend this book and would invite you to check it out! You can get her book on Amazon or any book retailers. I would like to thank Free Spirit, Dritz, Fairfield, F&W Media, Bosei Foam, Fiskars, and especially Kerry Goulder for suppling such fun goodies to play and explore her book. It's been fun to be a participant in the Sewing Tales Blog Hop.
I want to invite you to go and visit these other fabulous ladies and their blogs that are posting their reviews today.
