Fall and Winter Sewing books are out in full force! With longer sleeves, hemlines, and warmer fabrics. It is also time to start sewing for Christmas! If you haven’t already, hop on over to my Facebook page to take part in the Christmas fabrics giveaway. Those of you sewing for cooler weather, check out the new releases below.
Cotton friend Kids! 2015-2016 Autumn-Winter
Unfortunately I can’t find sneak peeks of it anywhere. But this replacement for the Cucito magaine (by the same publishers) should not disappoint! No baby patterns though, unlike Cucito. Patterns included are for kids 100-150cm.
Disney Kids Costume (Lady boutique)
Too late for Halloween sewing this year, just spotted this book that was released 3rd Oct but the costumes are so cute! Check out the Donald duck costume! Other costumes include Mickey & Minnie, Alice in Wonderland, Disney Princess, Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., Lilo & Stitch.
Clothes made of Natural materials
I love the simple yet refined looks in this book! Other than the linen fabrics used, you can also find projects using cotton, wool gauze etc. No polyesters here 🙂
Edgy neutral pieces for both you and your SO to share!
Everyday wear using Kimono reform
Learn how to upcycle old Kimonos into everyday dresses (if you have any old kimonos lying around)
Easy sewing for Ladies 2015-2016 Autumn/Winter
I bought this a few weeks back and I love it. If you are a compulsive crafter like me, you will love this. There are sewing patterns (including a regular column with a free pattern by Yoshiko Tsukiori), crochet, knitting, quilting and even handmade crafts.
Cotton Time November 2015
This issue is all about Christmas as you can see. They are giving a small piece of Christmas fabric (the one with the presents print) away with every magazine.
I get comments and emails regularly asking me where to purchase these new books. I’ve usually linked them to Amazon.co.jp which should deliver to most of the countries. If you have other regular sources, you can use the ISBN information as well to search for these books. Those of you who have a Kinokuniya in your country can try searching on their bookweb as well. Even if it is not in their store at the moment they may be able to order it for you from Japan.
Once again, don’t forget to take part in the giveaway for the Christmas fabrics on my facebook page. Good luck! I will be back next week with a new book review.
