Choose from 365 imaginative, fun, and easy projects you can make – one for every day of the year. The book features 52 weekly themes, along with 7 coordinating projects to round out each week.
You can choose from finger puppets, garlands, wall art, cupcake toppers (awesome!) soft & cute critters and much more, all aimed at the beginner stitching enthusiast.
A few of my favorites include Dog Week (see below), Cat Week, Fox Week, Racoon Week, Penguin Week and Gnome week – because there’s no place like gnome…
The critters all have a unique personality and I want to make them all! As I flipped through the pages, I found myself giggling over whimsical ideas in this book, and the variety of projects styles and types, and the multitude of ideas packed between the pages.
Using this book, you’ll learn basic sewing skills, as well as easy embroidery stitches that you can use to enhance the projects.
