Favorite sewing books

I have shared that I love the book Sewing Bits and pieces

But here are 2 more that I consider must haves in my collection.

Oliver & S Little Things To Sew

This is perfect for Moms of Boys and Girls alike. A tutu, a penguin backpack and an explorers vest are on my children's list of things for me to sew for them. They had a great time looking through and marking pages.

and this book is an absolute must have for me. It is fairly new on the market and I really debated on buying it seeing that I have so many other sewing books.

Stitch By Stitch: Learning to Sew, One Project at a Time

The projects are pretty useful items but what it really does is show you project by project how to sew. It really builds on what you did with the first project and teaches something new with each progressive item. It is also a fun read. She has a great sense of humor. I made a skirt for my 2 y/o from this book I will have to take a picture to share. It is pretty big. The skirt is a size 3 but it is really a 3/4 and she is in a 2/3. Since it is a longer skirt it will last her the next 3 years. I love it so much I bought fabric to make another on (smaller this time). So if you are wanting to learn to sew, are rusting sewing or want to learn so new techniques, this book is fabulous.
