Editorial Reviews


"Carestio (Fa La LaLa Felt) believes that fabric obsession isn't only for expert sewists. This collection of no-sew and low-sew projects takes a variety of materials, from quilting cottons to recycled clothing to paper maps, and transforms them into garments and accessories appropriate for everyday use. Upcycling is a recurring theme in the projects, and Carestio makes clever use of repurposed fabrics and garments. The projects that work best are the designs for children, such as the colorful sock monsters, the pencil roll made out of wool felt, and the teddy bear backpack . . . this is a fun set of projects that fills a gap in crafting collections." —Library Journal

Format: Paperback
I’ve been sewing my whole life, but I love a good project that doesn’t require pulling out the machine. So, I was very interested in the projects in Never Been Stitched, which include ideas from many different textile designers. I’m working on the No Sew Message Center, which requires no sewing, only gluing, and starts with an wood embroidery hoop. I’m just using fabric scraps that I have around the house, so it’s a zero cost project for me!

Another creation I have my eye on is the Fabric Wrapped Wreath, which uses a wrap and pin technique that’s really simple. I love the rainbow effect and I certainly have a lot of spare remnants to use for it. I also like that my daughter, who is new to sewing, found so many things she wanted to make. She loves all the bright and happy ideas, including several adorable ones specifically for kids like the cute Caterpillow!
