Sewing Happiness: A Year of Simple Projects for Living Well

Sewing Happiness: A Year of Simple Projects for Living Well

by Sanae Ishida

Twenty Japan-inspired seasonal sewing projects that the author designed as part of a year-of-happiness regimen. There are a gazillion sewing project books out there; this is the only one I've seen where I've looked through it and liked every project. Sanae Ishida teaches useful, practical skills like pattern drafting, origami-like folds and motifs, and how to do sashiko embroidery. Projects include a neat bag, a bucket, a dress, yoga pants, a tooth fairy pillow for kids, and more simple and elegant things that you could actually use and like. Read, sew, and get happy!
