Book Review: Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing

Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing
By Kathy Cano-Murillo

I just received "Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing" from Random House, Inc. I really like how Kathy has her own unique style that's reflected in the book. It's vibrant, creative, and fun. And at the same time anyone can customize the projects to their own taste, it's very versatile. Besides the projects, she shares about sewing basics, fabrics, fabric techniques, and even making appliques. The tag line at the bottom of the book reads "for the everyday crafter". I couldn't agree more.

Below are a couple projects that caught my eye!

Fabric Postcards

Pocket Bag - I will not give away how this is made but I will say it's very clever!
