I have another fun book to share with you today!
If you are following me over on Facebook, you have probably seen me share projects from Lisa of A Spoonful of Sugar. I just adore her style – everything she sews is so pretty and her fabric choices are always perfect!
Lisa has a new book out called A Spoonful of Sugar, after her blog, and it is so sweet! You are going to just love it. I’m so happy to be a part of her blog tour for the book!
The book is a sweet mixture of home, kitchen, and even projects for kids. There is a fun mix of hand and machine sewing that I loved – I have so many projects I want to make!
For the book tour we are each showing off a project we’ve made from the book. I was looking through deciding what to make and came across this darling mixer hoop art. No decision there – I just had to make one of my own!
The book has a full pattern for the design and great instructions too. So if you’ve never done machine embroidery outline stitching – this is a great place to start!
Lisa has several hexie projects in the book as well. I took that idea and made a little flower garden hexagon hoop to go with my mixer hoop.
I made the hexagon flower and then hand stitched them to the base fabric with a running stitch. It was really quick to make! I love how they look together.
There are so many amazing bloggers on the tour – you’ll want to check them all out to see what everyone made!
