Sew Creative—A Book to Sew Playfully!

Sew Creative—A Book to Sew Playfully!

Posted by Jennifer Pol Colin on Jun 5th 2018

This is my book's release month! Sew Creative is live, and I can hold it in my hands! I'm so happy to introduce you to this C&T Publishing book from Fun Stitch Studio featuring thirteen sewing projects designed for kids and teens!

Thank you to everyone who already ordered it!

Don't have it? You can purchase Sew Creative on or directly from me if you are in San Diego. 

If you follow me here and there, you certainly already heard about this book and the numerous sewing projects. Inspired at first by my daughters, this is a selection of projects I adapted for kids' sewing lessons. Beside "fancy" projects, you can also find "classic" garments and "basic" accessories. But the idea with this book is definitely to have something fun in each project, classic or not, always including a way to make it differently or to customize it with a zest of fantasy.

At Little Print Fabrics Studio, I enjoyed teaching a playful way of sewing for four years, so I wanted a book that reflects my classes, where we always sewed creatively.  I wished to infuse in this book the fantasy, the creativity, and the playfulness of my aesthetic, which were the foundations of my studio's success. Now I'm moving back to France and closing this piece of sewing heaven, but with this book, anybody can still enjoy some stuff we did there!

As you can see, this sewing book arrives just on time to end and start a new chapter of my life, even if I'm not done with kids' sewing. For now, I'm done teaching, but I'm certainly not done being inspired by my three daughters and creating. My girls were very involved in this book, and I'm very happy we can see them sewing and showcasing the projects.

Limited by a strict number of pages, we ended up needing to cut some projects and photos. As the author and also the photographer of the book, I'm happy to share with you now through my blog and C&T's blog some extra projects and pics I have (and I have a ton!).

Stay tuned, free tutorials of sewing projects are coming up on both blogs!

Parents, kids, and preteens alike will love this selection of playful projects based, for the most part, on personalization. You’ll develop your sewing skills through very useful techniques and explore all the ways to personalize your sewing project by using all the art supplies available to modern sewists and crafters, such as regular fabric paint and puffy, glow-in-the-dark, or chalkboard paint.

Each project is described with a step-by-step tutorial that is easy to follow and gives you the chance to create your own design. For most of the projects, various templates are provided so you can choose the version that matches your personality.

I hope you will love this book, and if you want to have one for free, don't forget to follow me here and there to maybe win one! I'm launching some giveaways this month!

And of course if you love Sew Creative, don't forget to rate it on and to spread the word around you!
