Seasons Must Read Books

As I parooze the web, I’m finding many of the same books on peoples wish lists.  So much that I thought to share what the common trends for this seasons creative book reading are.  Here it goes…

Handmade Home and The Creative Family are both written by Amanda Blake Soule (you may have heard of Amanda through her blog SouleMama).  Handmade Home offers 33 projects using repurposed items and The Creative Family teaches you to “…awaken your family’s creativity…”.   Each book runs less than $15 on Amazon.

The title says it all – One Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins offers projects to do with only a single yard of fabric.  Projects are stylish and most can be made in a few hours.

I have always wanted to learn to print on fabric (especially screen printing) and Printing by Hand offers step by step instructions using stamping, screening, and stenciling methods.  This book has lots of great reviews and I hope to get my hands on it this year.

Bend-the-Rules Sewing by Amy Karol is a book made for the novice sewer.  Amy discuss various techniques, how to choose fabrics, and even covers the basics of supplies and equipment.

This has got to be one of the most popular decor books on everyone’s wish list.  And really, how can it not be?  Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy was released in 2008 and still holds popular today.
