Book Review: Home Sewn Nursery by Tina Barrett
Published by GMC Publications, it's a book dedicated to sewing all things baby related from toys to clothes.
When I thumbed through the book, I was right to be excited! It's jam packed with patterns for the little person in your life, with each project being cuter than the last.
It's quite rare for me to look through a book and want to make 90% of the items in it, but that's exactly how I feel about this book!
What's it about?: It's a baby themed sewing pattern book. It includes patterns for games, clothes and toys, as well as useful items like a buggy liner and changing bag.
The intro: The author introduces the book with a little insight into her background and how she started sewing, and encourages readers to create whether you need to for financial need or not.
The projects: 20 different projects, each one of them really cute and lots of them practical too. I'm finding it a hard task to know which to make first! My favourite projects in the book are the floppy eared bunny (as pictured on the cover of the book) and the buggy liner, which is a practical idea for keeping your buggy clean and stylish.
Each project is also accompanied by a pull-out pattern contained in the back cover of the book.
What else is there?: As well as the pull out pattern sheets at the back of the book, there is also a detailed section with step-by-step illustrations and instructions of sewing basics. The sewing basics section details tools, machine sewing, hand sewing and finishing techniques.
Craft type?: Crafty mums or indeed crafty people who want to create for the little people in their life. It's a book suitable for beginners and experienced sewers; beginners will enjoy learning the techniques shown step-by-step, and experienced sewers will enjoy the new ideas and drafted patterns.
