Fun Sewing Books

I saw these books online and requested them from our local inter library loan system. They are wonderful! They were first published in Denmark two years ago. It's easy to see how the ideas from these books have been adapted and used all through blog craft land. I'm sad I have to return them this week.

Most of the patterns are for sewing. However, if you look at the rooms that the crafts are sewn in you can see various ways that fabric has been used to decorate the home in the simple Scandinavian style.

They have ideas for rugs, dolls, fabric boxes, fabric roses,apples, pears, strawberries, purses, quilts, wall hangings, etc. You'll need a basic knowledge of sewing to follow the instructions and the English translation isn't perfect. But if you are into sewing and crafts, you might want to check these two out.

Pin It!
