Stitch Savvy Book Review

Recently, I added Deborah Moebes  class on Craftsy for sewing A line skirt and then shortly I saw she had this book called Stitch Savvy releasing soon. I thoroughly enjoyed Deborah on Craftsy and wanted to check out her book . So here I am today going to talk about the book "Stitch Savvy" which I received recently for review.

This book has 25 skill building projects from easy to advanced level in homedecor, patchwork and quilting, bags, sewing for children and clothing. The author at every project you finish will ask you to try a little more complex project.

The book starts with explaining the different terminology and technique and  is then immediately followed with 3 warm up projects, which I thought was neat before you actually start with a little more complex project.

The each section i.e. home decor, patchwork and quilting, bags, sewing for children and clothing has 5 projects. At each project you have small sections of crash course on certain technique, analysis and tips..which again I thought was useful for all level of sewers. The project are just awesome from the lady elbow bag, to lay flat backpack or sassy pants all are great. I did not get the material yet but the sassy pants is the project I plan to start with. Also read through all the instructions and see images before you start on project.

Lastly the best part is the book is spiral bound and lays flat so you dont have to worry about pages turning . Also, all the patterns come on CD which I thought was a great advantage as far as storing is concerned. Just choose the pattern and size, print it and attach the pattern pieces with a tape and you are all set to sew..isn't that cool.

All in all I think it is a book worth buying and for all skill won't be disappointed.
