Welcome to A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR Blog Hop.
I first “met” Lisa on Craftgawker a few years ago. Her works were so intricate and charming, so I always remember that sweet name, A Spoonful of Sugar.
Later on, Lisa became one of my first Instagram friends.(thank you social media!) and I am completely honored to introduce to you her very first book, A Spoonful of Sugar.
When I saw the first page, I was so thrilled to try something I feel very comfortable with, Sewing Illustration!
I followed her instructions for the Nautical Treasure Bags and embellished it with her Love to Bake Wall Art. I think the results are charming!
My second make was her Fabric Gift Baskets.
She made three baskets in the book (I know the process of book writing and I am sure she must have made more than three to write the wonderful instructions.) so I decided to make three baskets for myself, or for my three girls, if they care to take them. This mama makes things all the time, but they say mama’s works are “too cute” even for my six year old. 🙁
These little baskets are perfect for storing the little spools.
I used Flower Sugar Holiday line from Lecien Fabrics and Cosmo threads for the hand embroidery. I was enjoying Christmas in April.
Lisa was right when she said that these baskets make perfect gifts. I just love to sew something that is easy to make and yet beautiful to give.
There are 20 simple projects in the book; raw edge applique(I would like to call, “Sewing Illustration”), Sashiko and English Paper Piecing, patchwork and even crochet!
It seems like a “Encyclopedia of sewing ” book. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my A Spoonful of Sugar book projects. Check the list of all the blogs to visit and the dates of this tour. There are so many talented sewists and beautiful projects! I promise you won’t want to miss a single day of it!
