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!
