Sewers no longer have to be hemmed in by traditional patterns. The "Sew What!" series introduces a whole new sewing style - free-form, improvisational, and self-expressive. With no prior experience, crafty young women can now create simple, colourful wearables using not much more than a tape measure, some fabric, and a basic machine.In this adventurous new world of sewing, it's all about the fabric, and fleece is the perfect choice for the creative sew-what woman. Soft, luxurious, incredibly forgiving, and relatively inexpensive, fleece is the fabric of a new generation. It doesn't fall apart easily, needs no edge hemming and comes in bright colours and contemporary patterns. And fleece isn't just for outerwear any longer! Lighter weights and finer finishes are wonderful choices for creating snug, casual indoor clothing.Designers Carol Jessop and Chaila Sekora have created 30 fleecy projects with endless possibilities for personal variations. Plush hats, scarves, wraps, and jackets fulfil the original purpose of fleece - superior outdoor warmth when cold weather hits.
Yoga pants, a robe, and adorable baby accessories, including booties, buntings, and blankets, are excellent projects for fleece so thin, it's hard to believe it's fleece. And what collection of fleece projects would be complete without a few dog accessories? Doggie Do Rags, a collar, and a jacket are simple projects, quick to sew and guaranteed to please the most discriminating canine.A creative approach, playful photographs, and super-simple instructions give sewers the confidence to try every project and experiment with personal touches and embellishments. Sewing is officially fun again. Those cumbersome old home-ec patterns are truly a thing of the past!
