Sewing Books

Here is a list of some of my favorite sewing books for beginners. All of these offer some really cute projects for those learning how to sew. You will find that each one presents the directions for making each project in simple, user-friendly language to meet the needs of the beginner sewer to even the highly advanced. Some of these books also provide sewing patterns for each project directly in the back of the book! Happy sewing…

This is by far the BEST sewing book I have ever come across! It is in essence a “sewing for dummies” book. It explains all of the sewing lingo, offers trendy and cute sewing projects, and it provides free sewing patterns! This is a must have for any sewer!
