We have a treat for you today! Not only am I going to share my insights of this lovely book, but you get a FREE project download from the book. Yahoo! What is better than a sneak peak??
Inside A Spoonful of Sugar you will find an intro to tools and material, as well as techniques. There are a total of 20 projects seperated by category: for the home, for the bedroom, for the kitchen, for the craft room and for the kids. The book also comes with a CD that contains all project patterns. Each of the projects emulate the Zakka style. If you are not framiliar with the Zakka style all you need to know is that simplicity is beautiful. Zakka is a design style from Japan and refers to anything and everything that may be improved in your life. I personally find the Zakka style sweet and practical.
Everything inside A Spoonful of Sugar is just that, sweet and practical, even down to the fabrics. Within the projects you will learn techniques ranging from English paper piecing to hand embroidery techniques, and Sashiko stitching to crochet. The small details of each project make them charming and unique. This book is sure to please your stitching fix.
