Whatever your skill level, these Mary Engelbreit designs to sew will bring out the best in your creative spirit. Choose your favorite fabrics and start stitching aprons, baby bibs, place mats, and sewing accessories, just to name a few! Spiral binding makes the book easy to use, and there's a Sewing Primer to help you gather your supplies and sew every stitch, whether by hand or machine. And when a project calls for a pattern, you'll find it in the beautiful envelope on the inside cover. We like this idea of keeping the full-size patterns tidy and close-at-hand so you can reuse them as many times as you wish. These 26 designs are more than just exciting items to sew; they're also gifts you'll be proud to make for everyone you know.

About the author (2009)

Mary Engelbreit had her first success as an illustrator of greeting cards in the late 1970s. She formed her own greeting card company in early 1980s after becoming impatient with the process of working in the greeting card industry as an independent contractor. Engelbreit's style depicts simple scenes in intricate detail, with amusing quotes to distinguish them. Successful in greeting cards, her business soon expanded to include Engelbreit's popular art on tee shirts, mugs, calendars and gift books, to name a few. Engelbreit has also published many books illustrating crafts such as quilting and decorating. In 1993 she illustrated The Snow Queen by Hans Christen Andersen, fulfilling a lifelong dream of being an illustrator of children's books. Mary Engelbreit was born in 1952 in St. Louis, where she lives today.
