Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
If you enjoy making gifts for children and embrace the upcycling trend, then this book will appeal to you. Broken down into makes for babies, little ones (toddlers) and children up to ten years, the book contains 25 projects to sew, stitch or knit and comes complete with a tissue paper full sized pattern in an envelope inside the back cover. My particular favourite projects include reversible baby shoes, corduroy pull-on trousers, an easy-wrap dress and a hooded winter coat. The projects are clean and organic in their styling, embracing the popular zakka look.

Sweet & Simple Handmade by Melissa Wastney is full of beautifully constructed clothing and toys for children from infants to teens. Each piece is lovingly designed with a child’s needs in mind, from corduroy pants made to fit through a growth spurt to a warm winter coat that can be made with materials best suited for your child. Sweet & Simple Handmade includes pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions for each piece in the book. It includes knitwear as well as sewing and has patterns and clothing ideas for every season. The instructions are easy to follow, with clear sketches of each step along the way. There are even tips included for upcycling old pieces into new ones that children will love. It also includes tips on getting the little ones involved with the different projects throughout the book. Even if you’re not ready to start crafting, the book itself is absolutely beautiful to just look at. The colors and patterns of the materials used are inspiring and the finished projects are so fun to look at.
