Sewing school 101

I want to be good at sewing.

A sewista.

A sewing ninja.

I dream about stitching clothing for my kids and creating personalized items to decorate my home.

Sewing is something I've dabbled in, but not pursed enough to actually be considered adept. Mostly because it seemed so daunting.

But now  I'm excited to learn again because my friend Nicole (of Gidget Goes Home) has written and excellent book that's perfect for aspiring sewistas like me: Sewing School 101: Simple Tips to Get Your Stitching

Sewing School 101 is full to the brim with straight-forward, easy-to-follow instructions.

Nicole has created wonderful tutorials that teach the basics of sewing, but also help you create real products you will want to use in your home, including a simple pennant banner and a refashioned tank top. 

I love how everything is broken down into simple steps and lots of color photos are included to help make everything easy to understand. 

I am excited to go through this book since I know very little about sewing! I plan to do so alongside my 13 year old daughter.

Check out the table of contents:

  1. Hi, I love yout posts and trying to find my way around sewing too. 🙂 guess this book will be a nice and helpful guide. Of course, when I become a sewing ninja I’ll create a wedding dress 😉
    Thnx 🙂

  2. I would love to win this book. I need to sew some curtains, I want to sew some clothes for myself and my daughter and my 2 little boys.

  3. I would use this as a teaching book for my 15 year old homeschooler…would be a great curriculum.

  4. I would sew a queen size quilt. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with how they are made.

  5. Oh, I would sew everything! Curtains for our home, pretty dresses for our girls, skirts and shirts for us…and on and on! I would love this book!

  6. I would love how to sew everything as well. My grandmother was an excellent seamstress but passed away before she could teach me how to sew. I would love to learn so I could teach my daughter.

  7. I took Home Economics in high school and even made a skirt. I’ve lost everything I learned by not incorporating it into my life. I would love to win this as a refresher for me and to teach my two daughters who would love to make their own stylish modest clothing! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  8. Gasp!! I need this! My 7 year old asks me to teach her to sew whenever I get my sewing machine out. Unfortunately, I am self taught and mostly just do little projects here and there. Have always wanted to become more skilled. This book sounds great!!

  9. I would just love to be able to sew my own skirts! I seem to never be happy with the fit or length of the ones I buy at the store and with cash being tight, sewing my own sure sounds like a good idea!!

  10. I have been wanting to learn to sew for years now. It can be hard to find stuff that fits my body, esp my shoulder and bosom area which are not so endowed and sometimes i think if I could just cut out some of the extra arm pit area or sew a dart in there it would fit me perfectly but I don’t know how to make it happen. This would be helpful!

  11. If I had super sewing skills, right now I’d make some great pajama bottoms – because mine are worn out!

  12. Ohh perfect timing! I would live a copy as I’m starting my journey. I just had a miscarriage and want a hobby to help me recover and find myself.

  13. I’ve been sewing for a while but could use some improvements! I need to start making doll clothes for my daughter – store bought is too expensive & doesn’t hold up well. 🙁
