Sew Subversive

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, April 14, 2009

This book caught my eye last week... "Sew Subversive... Down and Dirty DIY for the Fabulous Fashionista", put out by Stitch Lounge.

All in all it's a great book! Within the pages are heaps of inspiring photos and projects, as well as a run down on the basics of sewing at the beginning of the book.

Who would have thought to make a tote out of your favourite (but too old to wear) labelled t.shirt... or to make legwarmers from the arms of an old jumper!

I really enjoyed the 'down-to-earth' projects in this book - very inspiring!

Has anyone else read this one??

Check out Stitch Lounge's blog here... they even have some free tutorials!
