Book Description

9 Feb 2012
By replacing pens and pencils with needle and thread, and paint with fabric appliqué, Chloe Owens has applied artistic principles to sewing and created these unique projects showing her true passion for handcrafted things. Packed full of 35 crafty ideas, Chloe uses a wide variety of techniques from embellishment and adornment to freehand embroidery that are forward thinking but still inspired by vintage style. Split into five chapters, start by making something fun for a lunch with friends in Cooking Up A Storm. There are pretty placemats, table decorations and even an apron for the hostess. In Cuddly Companions you will find a giraffe, lion and bonkers bobtail bunnies to sew, each one decorated with pretty stitches. Gifts comes next, with tote bags and quilts that friends will love to receive. If you adore long lie-ins then Rest Your Weary Head has pillows with appliqué and embellishments, plus a Holly Golightly inspired eyemask. Finally, Room Decorations has wall murals and hangings to add a splash of colour to your home. Every project comes with step-by-step instructions and adorable artworks, making everything so simple to stitch. There is also a handy techniques section and templates to help you along the way. So what are you waiting for? Grab a needle and thread and get down to some seriously creative crafting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 3 May 2012
By Donster
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received All Sewn Up this morning and haven't stopped looking at it! The styling is fresh, vintage and quirky, right up my street, and the fabric choices are very inspirational. I particularly liked the cartoons of Jake the cat. There are some very clear templates, especially the birds, which could be used for a variety of projects. I also liked the boy and girl dolls which may well be my first project. I am quite an experienced sewer but I reckon anyone could be successful in these projects. Although you may find similar items in other craft books, such as lavender hearts, tea cosy and cushions, Chloe Owens' style is very distinctive and the pages are laid out very prettily so I don't mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 18 July 2012
A lovely book full of projects of varying difficulty. I am not a very experienced sewer and find the explanations very clear. Thankfully measurements are in cm and inches to help the UK and US markets. This would be a great gift or if you're like me you can gift it to yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sunshine for a grey day 20 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have just received my copy of this book, and I am so happy. The weather outside may be grey and overcast, but I can feel the sunshine radiating out from this lovely book.
This is such a great book, it is hard backed and cloth covered, the paper inside feels nice and the photos of the projects are clear, and the styling is lovely and homely. It is full of really easy to follow projects, that range from beginner to more complicated ones (I'm not very good at machine embroidery but I know this is the book that will make me persevere with it) the illustrations by Gemma Correll are lovely and will appeal to anyone who gets assisted and distracted in their sewing by their pets (I'm sure Chloe's Jake wasn't the only kitty who runs away with the cotton reel) already I am sticking post it notes to the pages where there is a project I want to try out, and I seem to getting through them rather quickly.
This is such a nice original book, the projects to make are in keeping with the patterns and colours of the retro fabrics that are used and there is more than a gentle nod to items made in the 60s and 70s....the whole book has a lovely vintage feel without trying to be something it isn't, this certainly isn't one of those 'jump on the vintage bandwagon' style books but instead seems written and created from the heart. Go on, spoil yourselves and buy yourself a copy, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars All sewn up 22 Feb 2012
This book is gorgeous, everything from the tactile front cover to the beautiful fabrics used throughout the book. I bought this book as I wanted to learn how to use machine embroidery and appliqué. Everything is so easily explained I dont feel daunted, There are easier items to get you stared which can be made with the children,to bigger projects you would be proud to display in your home. Can't wait to get started!

3.0 out of 5 stars Attractive looking book 4 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very pretty cover, nice colourful pages with easy to follow instructions, but I should have inspected the contents before I purchased as it is meant for a much younger person not a granny like me so this one will be going in little 7yr old grand-daughter's collection as it's more suited to her age group with the help of a mum or teacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite craft book! 22 Feb 2012
This book is a breath of fresh air! Full of gorgeous projects... it's the first sewing/craft book I own in which I want to make all of the projects. Chloe Owen's demystifies machine embroidery and makes it seem fun rather than scary. I can't wait to start making!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, not more than that 22 April 2012
By astrid
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Book with a retrostyle which is fun, but also a bit childish and not so very original. I'll make 1 or 2 project out of it.
