As a house warming gift, I received Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts from a great friend at work.
This book is full of so many techniques and projects, with beautiful photography and clearly illustrated instructions. This book will become an essential reference book and I definitely recommend it. The book has a beginning section about various techniques, then goes through projects A-Z. It includes a CD with printable templates 'BONUS'.
My favorite projects are the box pillow and cases and woven-wool pillow covers, shown below. But there are many, many more.
I can't wait to get started!
Also, Over the weekend I made my Etsy Shop and Blog cohesive to my new business card.
