Simply Sewing

Know someone itching to learn how to sew? This could be their motivation. With 25 easy sewing projects designed to last for 30 mins each, this is a great skill and confidence builder. Ideal for getting beginners started on a project straight away.


This is an essential book for the beginner sewist.

With 25 projects and a double sided pattern sheet, it is a complete lesson on how to sew.

Every project has a different skill to learn. From zips to applique, there are helpful tips and finishing ideas to guide through each process.

This bright colourful book is perfect for a complete novice, but the projects are brilliant for gift ideas for every lover of sewing.

I love how the ideas included are great for stash busting. Some using just a small amount of fabric, and can be completed in an afternoon.

Highly recommended
