If you have a couple of hours and you'd like to sew a few holiday gifts this year, take a peek at Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects. This resource includes young and clean-lined patterns for the home. There's definitely something for everyone on your gift list.
Patterns are organized into four chapters: Cook, Go, Nest, Organize. In the Cook's chapter, you will find great gift ideas—everything from a Placemat with Chopstick Holders to Coasters to a Reversible Apron. Other fun, easy projects perfect for your Mom, MIL or Aunt: Kitchen Towels, Simple Tote, Gardening Tote, Draft Snake, Door Stop, Checkbook Cover, Bed Pocket.
Throughout the resource, patterns are organized by their Level of Difficulty (1, 2, or 3), but Jansdotter assures us: "The easiest projects (labeled level 1) even a beginner can complete in just a few hours. Others (labeled level 2 or 3) are a bit more complex and will take perhaps a weekend to complete. But none are beyond the skills of an adventurous novice." The icing on the cake: all patterns are free of zippers and complicated buttonholes!
Available from Amazon for $16.47, this resource is a great gift for the seamstress in your life or for those looking to sew their holiday gifts this year.
