Home Sewn

Home Sewn by Cassandra Ellis is a wonderful collection of projects and inspiration for every room.  The book is divided into three categories, Living, Resting, and Eating & Sharing.  Each project then gives you a list of things “You’ll need,” some of which you may have to purchase, things “You’ll also need,” which are common items you probably already have, and precise instructions on how to go about the project.  The directions are very easy to follow.  I really like how the author included numerous photos of the finished product in different settings you can truly be inspired.


I have bookmarked many ideas within the book that I would like to someday begin.  The first project I would like to tackle is to make linen ottomans.  I believe it is for beginner to intermediate crafters.  There is quite a range within the book of projects from beginner to advanced.  Some of the quilts, although have great detailed instruction, are more for the advanced sewers.  In the back of the book there is a great resource for purchasing some of the materials as well as kits to make the projects easier to tackle.  For example, you can buy a lamp shade kit or a headboard kit online.  Another great feature of Home Sewn is many of the projects and patterns can be downloaded from the author’s website
