Simple Sewing with a French Twist

I received this book as a Christmas gift, “Simple Sewing with a French Twist,” by Celine Dupuy. It really opened my eyes to a whole new section at the bookstore. I don’t know why I didn’t think of there being sewing books, especially with all the reviews and tips in blogland… but I didn’t. This book has some great ideas and gorgeous photos. There are numerous house items–ottomans, lamp shades, upholstery projects–and I love the way everything is coordinated. Her fabrics are luscious, too. I’m excited to try a few, especially the hat pattern. I’ll let you know how it works out and whether or not I recommend the book once I do!

    I saw this book the other day in Borders and immediately added it to my Wish List (it took all my strength to walk away and not charge it to the bugetary nightmare that is currently my VISA!). Gorgeous book. I love that shabby French look–so wish I could pull it off without just looking tattered and grungy!

    I’m really curious to hear what you think of this book, because it is gorgeous, but it may end up being more for “inspiration” than acutal instructions. What a lovely gift for you though.
