Interweave Press always releases fantastic, informative books, and this one is no different.
Here is the book description:
Meg McElwee puts her signature sewing style into gorgeous children’s clothes and creative activity-focused designs. From simple clothing to toys, Growing Up Sew Liberated is packed with innovative, playful sewing patterns. Following the structure of a child’s day are 18 projects including:
- Getting up and getting dressed: create kid-friendly clothing patterns such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, and pocket pants.
- Homemaking and cooking: engage children in helping around the house and in the kitchen with aprons, bibs, and placemats.
- Playtime: explore indoor and outdoor activities with dolls, a cape, a satchel, and a tent.
- Bedtime: snuggle in for the night in cozy pajamas and a sleep sack.
Meg also adds suggestions for projects designed to create adventures both kids and adults can share together, while incorporating tasks that children can accomplish on their own.
Growing Up Sew Liberated includes a techniques section with how-to photos, extra tips and tricks, and a bonus full-sized pattern section. This sewing project guide is jam packed with creative ideas that are perfect for integrating creativity and adventure into the daily lives of sewists, children, and families alike.
