My Favorite Sewing Books

The list author says: "Sewing books that are actually worth purchasing--projects that are fun and doable."
One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric!
One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects; Look How Much You Can Make with Just One Yard of Fabric!
"Great book for easy to make gifts at the last minute.  All you need is one yard of fabric and one to two hours.  The simplicity of the instructions and projects make it easy to get creative with fabric choices and embellishments."
The New Handmade: Simple Sewing for Contemporary Style
The New Handmade: Simple Sewing for Contemporary Style
"Cute book with great projects!  Int level.  Instructions are "fair."  One of the problems I had with them is they referenced the specific fabric used in the example.  It's unrealistic to think that readers would have access to or the desire to use exactly the same fabric in the example.  I crossed those references off and replaced them with "fabric A, fabric B, etc" to make it more universal."
Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits
Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits
"Absolutley adoreable projects!  Definitely clothes most kids will love.  I've made the Feliz dress several times for my daughter and she loves to wear it--and loves the compliments she gets!  The price is completely worth it--it comes with a pattern for each project."
Sew Special Fat Quarter Gifts
Sew Special Fat Quarter Gifts
"Great craft show worthy projects!  Unique and (mostly) quick to make with little fabric.  I love the crayon roll up case!  Great gift for little ones."
All Dolled Up: Sewing Clothes and Accessories for Girls and Their 18-Inch Dolls
All Dolled Up: Sewing Clothes and Accessories for Girls and Their 18-Inch Dolls
"Great book with cute projects!  Makes creating doll clothes easy.  My daughter loves matching her 18 inch doll and--considering the price of store bought doll clothes, it's definitely worth the price to buy the book!  A great CD comes with it."
Lunch Bags!: 25 Handmade Sacks & Wraps to Sew Today (Design Collective)
Lunch Bags!: 25 Handmade Sacks & Wraps to Sew Today (Design Collective)
"In this day and age, what better gift than an upcycled reusable lunch and snack bags!  These projects are unique and adorable.  Intermediate level sewing.  Some projects are very similar to each other, but there are so many projects in the book, it's still worth the price."
Softies: Simple Instructions for 25 Plush Pals
Softies: Simple Instructions for 25 Plush Pals
"My daughter bought this book at Half Priced Books for $2.48.  The projects are adorable--but a little complicated for younger sewers.  Great gifts--our favorites have been the tea bag and the "lonely dollop"."
