This contemporary collection allows stitchers to be eco-friendly and mobile, as they carry their projects along with them just as knitters do. And with more than 20 items ranging from fashionable pillows and aprons to practical totes and pincushions, sewers will produce gorgeous results while they experience the simple joys of traditional sewing.

Click here for purchasing info on Sewn by Hand: Two Dozen Projects Stitched with Needle & Thread.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, December 18 2012 at 11:59 PM (EST). One lucky winner will be chosen.

Good luck!

    Oh goodness! Since I handsew almost everything there’s way I could choose just one! My favorite thing to handsew however is doll clothes. :o)

    Well, I’ve only made a pillow, so I guess that’s my favorite thing! :)

    Not so much a project, but my grandmother and I used to sit together and do cross stitch when I was a child. To this day I still relax doing hand sewn projects.
