I think I might have found the very thing you've been looking for...
Stylish Home Sewing by Torie Jayne, published by CICO Books, is the perfect book for Mother's Day and to welcome in the Spring.
I'm happy to report that this book is chock full of stylish DIY sewing projects, there's not a dud in there. It's all killer and no filler! Torie Jayne, who studied fashion, is a paragon of style; her blog toriejayne.com gets 100,000 hits a month (that's right: A MONTH!), and she has designed for many high street brands such as M&S and Zara.
Her style is very feminine and pretty, using a trademark palette of tasteful pastels, which makes this book feel like breath of fresh air. Even if you don't share the same taste in florals and linens you could still make up your chosen projects in geo-inspired prints and neon colours.
It's all about sewing for the home, and the projects are grouped into rooms: hallway, kitchen, bedroom etc. There's also a very handy how-to section at the beginning with very easy to understand instructions and helpful illustrations.
The lovely team at Cico Books have given us a copy of Stylish Home Sewing to give away to one of our lucky followers. To be in with a chance of winning head over to our Stylist Home Sewing Facebook photo album for further instructions.
For Mother's Day, or just as a treat to yourself, this book is the bees knees.
