I have an entire shelf in my book case dedicated to just books about sewing. I’ve looked at them thoroughly from cover to cover and have made at least one project from each book. The two books that I use the most are “One Yard Wonders” and “Bend-the-Rules Sewing”.

“Bend-the-Rules Sewing” is written by the Angry Chicken blogger Amy Karol. This book has thirty projects, but what I loved most was all the advice and ideas. She writes about choosing and using different fabrics, and an entire section on techniques. She gives step by step instructions and illustrations of different hand stitches, embroidery techniques, and a lot of sewing vocabulary and descriptions of how and when to use different sewing notions. This book is perfect for a beginner to intermediate sewer.

The full title of this book is “One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric!” Really, what more can I say then 101 projects in one book!? This book has projects for everything and everyone. The sections from this book are: Dwell Redux, Household Affairs, On the Go, From Head to Toe, Carry it All, Outfit your Small Wonder, Accessorize your Little One, Playtime and Your Furry Friends.
