Book Review- Sewn Spaces

Joel Dewberry's Sewn Spaces: Fresh and Modern Projects for Your Life and HomeSewn Spaces : Fresh and Modern Projects for Your Life and Home by Joel Dewberry is a book full sewing projects that showcase lovely prints to decorate your home.
Most of the projects are very simple even for someone who is an absolute beginner at sewing. The emphasis is on the fabric, not in fussy construction techniques and the introduction has instructions for the various skills and techniques you'll need to know to complete the projects.
The simplicity of the ideas combined with great colors and palettes is inspiring. From the first couple of projects which are appliqued cards, and going to more involved pieces, almost everything in the book can be completed in an evening to create one of a kind decor items for your own home or making a perfect gift.
One of my favorite projects in the book is the bird sachet. The shape reminds me of the pretty little felt doves that my great aunt made for everyone in the family for Christmas trees one year, but they are updated and made usable throughout the year by using brightly colored flowered prints for a very folk charming appeal.
There are lots of good projects in the book. Some wearables that are actually wearable. Designs that look modern and fresh. The home projects are good ones.
My favorites are the pocketed memo board, the butterfly mobile, the very roomy farmer's market tote, and the quilt and pillow cases.
