Make yourself a mini studio, stock your sewing basket and try out some hand stitching. Finally, make some Art to Wear. There's a mix of easy step-by-step projects to sew by hand or using simple machining, from a hair bow to a little black dress (but in the colour that suits you best!). Packed with gorgeous illustrations, step-by-step project s, tips and fun activities, you will be creating unique clothes and accessories in no time.
