Book Giveaway #5 – In Stitches AND Fabric by Amy Butler

in stitches amy butler love fabricTHE PRIZE

One reader will win In Stitches by Amy Butler (published by Chronicle Books) & a selection of 9 fat quarter’s from Amy Butler’s LOVE collection (produced by Westminster Fibers)!

MY REVIEW

If sewing for babies isn’t your favorite, In Stitches is the book for you. With another 20 great sewing projects for you and your home you’ll find plenty of ideas for your living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, office, and personal style.

projects from amy butler's book in stitches

Pictured above are the oversized laundry bag, kimono-style bathrobe, and fashion checkbook clutch. Also pictured are some of the great schematic drawings and the pocket with patterns in the front cover.

I love that the book is spiral bound too – no fighting to keep it open to the right page and that can be a serious blessing in the middle of a project…

wide leg pajama pants amy butlerI made this pair of pajama pants from the book out of a flat sheet I picked up at a yard sale for $.25. I cut them out so the hem at the bottom of the pants was the top edge of the sheet – no hemming, yahoo! All the projects in this book work great with reused fabrics, so go thrift shopping!

In Stitches collage of projects

There are 2 fabulous Amy Butler quilt patterns in this book – the decorative patchwork throw, as shown above, and patchwork duvet cover. The instructions include instructions for all sizes (twin, full/queen, and king) which I love because I don’t have to do all that thinking by myself!

Also pictured are the floor cushions, short pleated apron, and square pot holder, all projects I can’t wait to try!
