Animal (and Alien!) Headbands in Sewn Together

Today I'd like to introduce you to fun crafty book: Sewn Together.

This new book from Lark Crafts features 25 projects to make with your kids, to introduce them to the joys of sewing. Aimed at kids aged 6-12, the book includes hand sewing, some easy embroidery plus simple machine sewing.  

You can make Woodland Puppets, a Drawstring Game Board, a Pennant Name Banner, a Patchwork Throw, a T-Rex Tote and more...

... including some cute felt headbands, designed by me! :)

These are easy to sew and soooo much fun to wear. You can dress up as a lion...

 ... a deer...


... or an alien!


I had a huge grin on my face when I made these and tried them on. I hope people will enjoy sewing them with their kids and will have many happy hours of creative play while wearing them!

Sewn Together: 25 Fun Projects to Sew with Kids is published by Lark Crafts. It's available from Amazon USA, Amazon UK, the Book Depository and many other bookshops.

P.S. Talking of books, I am sooooo excited that the new Christmas craft book from Lark is already out in the US and will be out very soon here in the UK. 'Tis the Season to Be Felt-y is the follow-up to the awesome Fa La La La Felt (which has a special place in my heart as it was the first book to feature my work, way back in 2009!). 

'Tis the Season to Be Felt-y includes 8 projects designed by me - I'm really looking forward to sharing pics of them with you guys and seeing all the festive felt loveliness stitched by the other contributors. You can see a preview of some of the projects in the book here, buy it on Amazon USA here or pre-order it on Amazon UK here.

P.P.S. Also coming soon from Lark Books: Sew Sweet Creatures. This features 16 "plush" creatures with cute accessories and it looks completely adorable. I stitched four of projects for this, including the bunny on the cover and a superhero pig. You can take a peek at the pig and some of the other creatures in this preview (I am especially in love with that llama!).  

Sew Sweet Creatures will be published later this autumn/winter, and is due out in the USA in October and here in the UK in December. I can't wait!
