If you remember my review from a few months ago (see here) you know I have a weakness for crafting and DIY books. My plan is to share reviews of my favorites. I have bought my fair share of stinkers but we won’t talk about that. Today I want to talk about “Happy Home” by Jennifer Paganelli.
I bought “Happy Home” quite a while back, ironically enough, before I had discovered her beautiful fabrics. The entire book is like an impromptu journey through the countryside with old friends. It is a book of 21 projects where every one is filled to the brim with vibrant pictures of happy people enjoyed the final piece and surrounded in sunlight.
The tutorials and directions are clear and easy to follow. She includes projects for different skill levels. Some can be projects to work on with your little ones and some can be great starters for the teen novice. And they all feature her luscious and bold fabrics! The book features a fantastic list of resources for a multitude of sewing and crafting supplies. And, before diving in to the projects she provides a complete glossary of sewing terms as well as detailed tips to get you started. Thankfully, she also includes a selection of patterns!
If you’re an avid seamstress, you’re probably familiar with Jennifer Paganelli’s amazing fabric collections. Since discovering her book I’ve become a huge fan. She seems to be quite a prolific artist. I highly recommend this book to anyone with and interest in textiles and DIY projects.
