{Book Review & Giveaway} Happy Stitch: 30 Felt and Fabric Projects for Everyday -Free!!


Happy Stitch:30 Felt and Fabric Projects for Everyday by Jodie Rackley is a delightful book bursting with colourful and fun projects to make. Best of all, the projects can be easily constructed with felt, fabric, and floss - all you need is basic sewing skills, and you can be whipping up some modern and cheerful projects in next to no time!

The book includes a helpful section to get you started that explains the supplies you need and basic stitches and techniques used in the projects. Jodie also provides tips on how to personalise the projects to really make them your own. The book includes all the templates in the back, they do need to be enlarged. 

The projects are cute and whimsical and range from Gadget Cosies; Embroidered Totes; Pillow
Covers: Wearables; Softies; and many more. Many of the projects would make lovely handmade
gifts.  Some of the easier projects, such as the felt ornaments, would be perfect to inspire 
children and teach them a few sewing basics. 

Jodie Rackley is known for her bold use of colorful and simple designs, that comprise her 
handmade line, Lova Revolutionary. You can see more of Jodie's work on her blog,
Lova Revolutionary. 

I couldn't wait to get started, and made up the Owl Softie today (pictured below). The instructions 
were clear and easy to follow, with photographs showing how to construct the project, 
step by step.
