Overview

Sought after for her one-of-a-kind handmade gifts, Jenny Ryan has created a collection of adorable projects in Sew Darn Cute that anyone can complete in a jiffy. Simple sewing techniques and quick yet stylish projects combine in this appealing book that teaches readers basic sewing skills while they create adorable yet useful items to keep for themselves or give as thoughtful presents. Use surface embellishment techniques including applique and embroidery to transform plain tees or old linens into pretty and unique signature items like a pillowcase purse or a skinny summer scarf; create lovable critters or a set of crafty coasters from scrap fabric and felted sweaters; or clean up the clutter in your craft room with easy-to-sew organizers for your crochet hooks, knitting needles, pins, and more. A focus on using vintage and thrifted, repurposed fabrics shows readers how they can whip up unique sewing projects that are also easy on the planet (and on your pocketbook). Colorful photographs reveal the projects and fabric selections up-close; step-by-step instructions, plus Jenny's tricks and tips, make it easy for home sewers to re-create these sew darn cute items for themselves.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sew Darn Cute is more like Sew Darn Clever! Jenn Ryan has whipped up a collection of projects that pop with personality! Easy-to-follow directions matched with her happy tone make for a must-have book. The juicy photos prove she put a lot of thought into every pattern, seam, and stitch. From a cupcake tote to a sassy sewing machine cover, these ideas will send any fabric hound straight to rickrack heaven!" —Kathy Cano-Murillo, founder of CraftyChica.com

"The brilliant fabric combinations Jenny Ryan creates are the icing on the cake of her projects. I just want to make and wear the whole book!" —Jenny Hart, founder of Sublime Stitching

Library Journal

Ryan's first book is cute without being cloying. The 30 projects range from the usual plush toys and baby clothes to a table runner made from vintage tablecloths and a makeup bag made from a recycled terry-cloth towel. It's difficult to do cute for adults effectively, but Ryan's patterns, including embellished tank tops and cardigans, work surprisingly well. Teens and parents of young children will especially enjoy Ryan's creations; most are easy enough for beginners.

    Sew Darn Cute Really Is!

    Sew Darn Cute is packed with enchanting projects for the beginner to intermediate sewer. I was worried the projects would be TOO cute, but they weren't. They were simply charming. This book is well worth the investment. See my full review at my blog: http://pinkededge.blogspot.com/.

    Great little sewing project book!

    This is a great book! I really enjoyed flipping through the projects (haven't made any yet, but directions look easy to follow and photography is great). I'm selective about the sewing books I buy--this one is a keeper! Great for inspiration. Very sweet projects, but it's not just kids' stuff (even though the book's name might make you think that). Cool, hip stuff for adults too. Definitely recommend!
