I was contacted by the wonderful folks over at YouCanMakeThis.com http://www.youcanmakethis.com/ and asked if I wanted to review a great eBook of Personalized Name Pillows! How perfect!! I have been saying lately how I wanted to sit down at my sewing machine again and relearn how to sew and make cute things. It's been since Junior High since I have really sewn anything. What a neat site they have, I've bookmarked it for future reference.
Well, I haven't had the chance yet to get to make my 3 name pillows, but let me tell you a little about the book. I would consider myself a newbie at sewing, and by reading the instructions to this, it seems pretty darn easy! Trace out your letters, iron them onto your main panel, sew a few fabric strips together for the border, sew on your back panel and stuff! How easy! I think it's perfect for beginners and novice seamstresses. Once I can find all the fabric colors I'd like to use, get some thread, I'll sit down and have my hand at making a personalized name pillow or 2 or 3!
You can also watch some of the How-To video here. This 27 pg eBook comes with step by step instructions, photos, patterns and comes in a PDF file for your Acrobat Reader, a $6.95 value!
So, do you sew? If so, I bet you could whip a couple of these out in no time! Would you like to win 1 of 2 eBooks? Let me know if you're a beginner, or have been sewing for years!
