I was contacted earlier this summer about reviewing this new book by Gooseberry Patch, titled Stitching for the Kitchen: 30 Easy Projects for the Heart of your Home. Because I just had a baby two weeks ago, instead of making a project from the book, I'm just sharing a little review for you today.
This book has some great projects for handmade items to either keep for your own kitchen or give away to others. Many of the projects in here are also great for young aspiring seamstresses who want to make a gift for a grandmother, aunt, or close friend. The instructions are easy to follow, pattern pieces are included, and the back of the book includes some instructional techniques for learning how to sew.
My favorite part of this book is that they give some instructions on how to hand embroider. This is something I've wanted to learn, as I would love to be able to personalize items without using a machine. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at embroidering some napkins with monograms.
If you're looking for some handmade projects, this book is perfect!
Be sure to check out the other bloggers who are participating in this blog hop. Some are giving away copies of the book, and others are highlighting projects from the book. Don't miss out!
I received a copy of Stitching for the Kitchen in exchange for writing a review. All opinions are mine.
