All Sewn Up: 35 exquisite projects using applique, embroidery, and more by Chloe Owens is published by CICO BOOKS.Introduction
Who is Chloe Owens? No, we might not immediately bring her name to mind, but she does promise ’35 exquisite projects’ for our perusal.
This book has a bright happy cover makes us stop – reminiscent of the 1960s floral fantasies, is this one worth a purchase?
Who is it for?
All the projects have step by step visual guides, so its great for anyone with a little less confidence or those who want a nice little project to do with an adventurous child.
Because its so colourful and pattern based, its a real magpie find for all the Cath Kidston or Liberty lovers out there.
The style of projects echoes vintage with a modern twist, so would appeal to grannies and grandchildren alike. It would also work well for students, who maybe want to pretty up their rooms. There are lots of projects where you don’t need loads of materials, making it ideal for University life!
There really is something to appeal to any crafter…..
What makes it special?
The photos are really cute. Take this example:

What is wrong with the book?
We think that when you have tried all the projects, you might not get it out as often, however if you are anything like us, you tend to forget how to do something very quickly and need to turn back to the book you got the idea from!
The handy technique section is a ‘go-to’ for any keen crafter:
Hands up, who has loads of teeny tiny scraps of colourful fabric, which are just too pretty to throw out, but too small to have used…yet?!
This book is ideal for those who want to fill themselves with pretty and create something in only a few hours.
What are you waiting for…pick your project!
