sewExpecting is the new eBook from Leigh Ann Tennent (The Object Project and Strawberry Truffle). If you’re an expecting mother, or know someone who is pregnant, or just like to have sweet baby gifts on hand just in case, this eBook is for you. In it, you can find patterns and instructions to make 20 – yes, TWENTY – different projects for baby:
- A basic infant bib, plus a patchwork and appliqued version.
A basic toddler bib, plus a patchwork and appliqued version.
A toddler bib with a storage pocket that doubles as a crumb-catcher!
A basic burp cloth, plus a patchwork and appliqued version.
A burp cloth with an innovative storage pocket!
Three styles of changing mats.
A very cool diaper clutch with instructions for 2 looks.
A textured securtiy blanket to keep little fingers busy!
A satin lovey.
A very simple, super-quick quilt!
All of these projects are boutique-quality, assuming of course that you construct them of quality materials.
The instructions are straightforward and are geared toward those with limited or no sewing experience. (Experienced sewers can probably skip straight to the patterns and use the instructions just as a quick reference guide.) If you’ve wanted to learn how to sew but haven’t known exactly where to start, sewExpecting is a good place to begin. The beginning of the eBook gives quick instructions for basic sewing, applique, and patchwork skills that you’ll need to create the projects. Most of the projects are constructed with from simple shapes, with minimal fuss.
sewExpecting is available from Strawberry Truffle for $22.00.
