Make something fun for the kitchen—pretty placemats, or an apron for the cook. If you like animals, make George the giraffe, or an owl pillow, decorated with pretty stitches. Gifts to sew include a raindrops and rainbows mini quilt that friends will love to receive. If you adore long lie-ins then sew the sleepy head pillow with appliqué embellishments, or a Holly Golightly-inspired eyemask. Last but not least, there are murals and hangings to add a splash of color to your home.

Each project comes with step-by-step instructions and adorable artworks by Gemma Correll—so just grab a needle and thread and get down to some seriously creative crafting.
