Book Review Corner

Hi All,
It's been a while since the last book review corner, but I just couldn't resist sharing this new find.

Growing Up Sew Liberated is the new book from Meg McElwee, and it is a beautiful collection of clothing, toys, accessories and parenting advice.

You may recognize Meg's name from her other book Sew Liberated, which I reviewed in this space about a year ago.
Meg's genius for easy-to-follow and carefully planned projects is again highlighted here.
The projects in this book are divided up into 5 chapters -
Greeting the Morning
Bread Sharing + Homemaking
Inside Play
Outside Play
Good Night, Sleep Tight
In this way Meg guides us through a day in the life of a child.

There is a nice range of difficulty represented in Growing Up Sew Liberated.
From the quick and easy Reversible Hooded Play Cape
to the Little Amigo Cloth Doll
which is a much more labor-intensive project.
Don't hesitate to try the projects with a higher degree of difficulty, however.
The directions are clear, concise and designed to guide sewists of all levels through to a successful project.

The clothes are sized for newborn through size 5.
The accessories, however, would be appropriate for children up to age 10.

Meg McElwee is a AMI-certified Montessori teacher, designer and mama to two young boys, find more of her inspiring projects here at SewLiberated.

Just a reminder, as well, that the final day of our Summer Clearance Sale is tomorrow, Sunday the 17th of July.

Happy Sewing!
