Sew The Perfect Gift - A Book Review

It was love at first sight when I saw the pincushion on the cover of this book!



Could it be any more darling!

Sew The Perfect Gift is a compilation of smaller items to make, all designed by different craftspeople, and all suitable for gift-giving.  You will recognize many of the names:  Kim Diehl, Kim Brackett, Vanessa Christenson, and other names your will know from their blogs, books, and patterns. 

In the quilting section, there is a candle mat, table topper, table runner, and a small wall hanging.  But anyone with quilting skills will be able to tackle other projects, such as the pincushion, gardener's apron, pillows, and various bags.  There are even a few Christmas themed items as well as cool things made from recycled fabric such as the wristlet made from an old sweater.  This would make a good case for holding an ipod or cell phone.

If you like to make gift items and are looking for some new ideas, check out Sew The Perfect Gift. 

I have a few sewing gifts planned but I haven't even started yet.  There are only 45 days left until Christmas so I need to get cracking!   What am I making, you ask?  Pillowcases and boxer shorts pajamas using novelty fabric.

Cathy, I'm going to have to watch for this book. It sounds like the perfect book for finding those kind of special gifts I will want to make for Holiday giving AND year around. Thanks for the great review! Hugs...
