I borrowed a copy of Sew Liberated by Meg McElwee at my local library. I have been on the waiting list for the book for a couple of months and was pleased to finally have a chance to look through it. I am a big fan of appliqué and the book has 20 projects to incorporate elements of appliqué into projects for house and home; projects for babies and children; and projects for spoiling yourself.
The book includes full sized pattern pieces in a handy envelope inside the back cover. The projects are modern, fresh, and contemporary and would appeal to the new generation of sewers. Projects are suited for the beginner through to the more experienced sewer.
Some of my favourite projects are:
All in all, I would recommend Sew Liberated. It has lots of useful and inspiring projects that can be easily customised with a few simple appliqué techniques.
I hope to do another library run tomorrow – there are a few other sewing books waiting for collection. Reading about crafty things is about all I have managed to do this week on the crafting front. I am hoping to tackle a few projects next week when my work commitments settle down.
