Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects

Ages ago I pre-ordered Simple Sewing by multi-talented blogger Lotta Jansdotter. Today it came in the mail and I am positively drooling over every page.

She presents simple yet beautiful projects in such a readable way that I am convinced that this time I will actually make something lovely. She even goes so far as to include several patterns in a convenient envelope. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the binding. It’s spiral bound & I have a personal hatred for spiral bound books — I’m always worried that I’ll tear the pages, and these pages are much too pretty to tear so I’ll have to be extra careful.

I’m almost afraid to show the book to Miss M this evening because I know she’s going to want to get cracking on a project Right Away! Even though I’m a little scared to dive in, I can’t wait to see what we make :-)
