Introduction

My mother sewed mostly from necessity, as our family was large and she needed to make every dollar count. She sewed items for the house and outfits for herself, my sister and me. They were not fancy, but I know they were most certainly sewn with love.

The first time I ever really paid attention to my mother’s sewing was when I was 7 years old and a young lady from a neighboring farm asked Mom for help with a cowboy-style shirt. The fabric she was using was the prettiest shade of turquoise I had ever seen.

While the color of the shirt was certainly what drew me in, I was fascinated by the fact that someone was asking Mom for help with sewing. Didn’t everyone’s mother know how to sew?

As I grew older, Mom showed me the basics of her sewing machine, and I made a few dresses and shirts for myself as well as some doll clothes. In the process, I found my passion.

This book is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn the basics of sewing while creating fun projects through the combination of interesting fabric print and color combinations.

Each project in this book is designed to introduce a new technique while utilizing newly mastered skills from the previous project.

I hope you enjoy this book and make good use of your new skills, planning sewing projects and making them pretty with confidence.
