Book Review - Weekend Sewing

Photo from Amazon

"Weekend Sewing", inspired by the STC bestseller "Weekend Knitting", features unique sewing projects that can be completed in a weekend or less, plus fun ideas for incorporating sewing into a relaxed, creative lifestyle. Projects for both beginning and intermediate sewers include dresses for girls and women, pyjamas sized for the family, pillowcases, throw pillows and travel bags. The book also includes recipes, such as soup to simmer on the stove while you're sewing, ideas for sewing with friends and children, plus useful information about setting up an inspiring sewing space, buying a new or used sewing machine and the basic sewing skills needed to complete the projects in the book. All of the instructions are clearly and beautifully illustrated by the author and the requisite patterns are included on two pullout pages at the back of the book.

Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching I like this book but it is not one of my favourite books.  There are quite a few errors in this book regarding the patterns and you have to go to Heather Ross's website for the errata .  Weekend sewing has 29 projects with full instructions as well as recipes and tips for setting up a home sewing studio.

Weekend Sewing is available from Amazon.

Disclosure: I buy sewing books from on-line shops with my own money, I am not being paid for writing this review. All my reviews are honest and on things that I genuinely love and would recommend to my readers.
