Sweet Booties! Sewing Book Giveaway

Today kicks off Sew Mama, Sew Giveaway Day week and I want to share a fun sewing book with you! Sweet Booties by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader, a former editor at Lark Books, is a book full of almost 30 modern sewing projects for babies, from bibs and hats to toys and blankets. And of course some sweet booties! All are adorable, and all are the perfect place to show off contemporary fabrics (or your favorite baby classics!)


The book also includes a CD with templates and full-size patterns, which is my favorite. I wish all sewing books would do that!

Want to get your hands on the book? Use the rafflecopter form below to enter! Good luck!

If you're new to my blog, please look around, or follow me on social media so you'll be reminded to come back once giveaway week is over ;)

And don't forget to head to Sew Mama, Sew to check out all the other great giveaways going on this week!
