I am so excited to have received this book, "Simple Sewing with Lola Nova" By Alexandra Smith. If you haven't seen her blog, please visit it, Lola Nova. I love her ideas and have been following her for years. So I am kind of late to the party with her book! It was published in 2012...yeah....very late! But better late than never! She has so many beautiful designs and I am sure I will make my way through each one at some point in time.
For my handmade holiday gift to my little grandson, Emmet, I will be making this Wee Bunny. I love how sweet his little face is.
I really believe in simpler toys for babies, it sparks their imagination if everything isn't done for them! And in a world of bells and whistles and tablets and smart phones, something like this is a breath of fresh air. Whatever happened to the days of pots and pans as toys? Now toys do it all for you. My kids learned to read by opening a book, not pressing a button....but I digress on my original intent for this post. I will save the soap box for a later date. Right now it's about this book!
So many beautiful things to make....Thanks Alexandra for the gift of your talent!
What are your handmade holiday plans?
