More About the Author

Tina grew up within a multicultural environment, including English, Greek and African heritage. A family of migrants from England and Cyprus to Africa, and then on to Canada and the United States. From a very early age, Tina has been sewing & collecting, but layered onto this knack for creative sewing, she is a true artist at heart. Her illustrations, paintings and collage art play a large role in Tina's apparel collections, paper design and lifestyle products. Rich vintage textiles, vintage elements and ancient African materials have always been her everyday inspiration. This fusion of history and present design is reflected in all of her work, from apparel, jewelry, home decor and surface design. There's this uncanny twist of 'Out of Africa' Linen, English garden prints, Mediterranean color and yet set into a subtle tribal city farm girl aesthetic.

Well I love the projects in this book. That being said, there are a couple of issues that I'm surprised to find in this book. I made the Moses basket, and the material requirements were inaccurate, leaving me short on 3 items and with an extra 1/2 yard of another. Also, the pattern pieces are printed on very nice heavy paper, but are double sided, and in some cases, need to be enlarged first. I personally don't have access to a copier, so in addition to paying for the book, I will also need to purchase tracing paper to make my own pattern pieces AND paying for the enlarged copies from Kinko's. Why not just print them on thinner paper so that we can actually use them? I do really love the projects, and the directions are written clearly and in a way that make sense, but the production errors are pretty disappointing.

I looked through this entire book, but my trouble started on the first few pages. The LARGEST size is 6-7, and I'm 12. Some of the projects were not clothes, but overall I doubt I'll make any of the projects. They are very nice projects, just for a younger group. I got it for my birthday, but was very disappointed! But, the projects were very pretty.

I would highly recommend this book! The illustrations are delightful. The projects are original, and the author encourages readers that the projects are a great place to begin and to add your own ideas and creativity. Love this book by the most talented Tina Givens!

Tina Givens has really out done herself with this book. It offers a wide variety of projects and is a must have for any seamstress. The projects are like no others I have ever seen which is a plus. Create unique gifts, clothing and decor with this book. The instructions are easy to follow for any stage seamstress-from beginner to advanced. I highly recommend this book. It's my go to book for anything unique I feel like creating.

wow..I really love the creativity of Tina Givens. This book is a joy to hold, to look at all the design ideas and to read about how
Tina designs. This is one of the best books I have come across in making one of a kind children's clothes. Can hardly wait to
get started.

Sew Tina! 30 Cute Projects & Adorable Decor Items For Kids by Tina Givens features clothing, accessories and decor projects for kids age newborn to roughly 8 years old. The book is broad and spiral-bound for easy use while sewing (yay!), and comes with 18 full-size patterns in the inside pocket (just trace and cut, and you're good to go!).

Sew Tina! starts with a brief but thorough section on techniques like pleating, gathering, binding, mitering corners, with lovely drawn instructions. The projects are then split into two sections: for the Little Ones and the Bigger Ones. Tina Givens' adorable illustrations pepper the pages.

While I've made a lot of baby gifts over the past few years, I continue to be hesitant about making clothing for kids or myself. Well, until I read this book! Tina's voice is so fun and encouraging, you can't help but be swayed by her enthusiasm and confidence that you'll do just fine. She's warm, funny and definitely not fussy. Her fabric designs and illustrations are a good reflection of her attitude: exuberant, playful and upbeat.

In Tina's own words, this is a book "in which I celebrate sewing for kids". The patterns are whimsical and fun, perfect for playtime but stylish too. The clothes are roomy and meant to grow with the child. Tina gives the reader little tips throughout, including confidence-boosting gems like: "Remember to use your judgment and enjoy the creative journey, people!"

Some of my personal favorite projects include the Squeaky Cap and Booties (unbearably cute!), the awesome Moses Basket (wish I had seen this when I was still pregnant!), the Baby Lounge Suits and the Maryjane Booties.
