Gooseberry Patch Stitching for the Kitchen: 30 Easy Projects for the Heart of Your Home
From the back of the book:
For more than 25 years Gooseberry Patch has been your source for homestyle cooking and happy memories. Now, with a collection of 30 beautiful sewing projects, Gooseberry Patch Stitching for the Kitchen will inspire your creativity in the place where those meals and memories are born…your kitchen!
With super-easy ideas for sewing, patchwork, applique, crochet and embroidery, this book will delight stitchers at all levels of skill and experience. The handy guide to essential techniques and the full-size patterns and embroidery motifs will make creating these sweet accessories, home decorating items, and gifts even easier.
I’ve been a fan of Gooseberry Patch for a long- long time. Probably 20 of their 25 years. So I was excited when I was asked to review this book. There are a wide variety of projects to choose from – not just napkins and tea towels like I was imagining- some practical and some not. I love the mug Cozy but the Pancake and Waffle Warmer doesn’t seem very useful at all. I mean, it’s cool to look at but wouldn’t it get food all over it every time it was used? Maybe I’m just being too practical?
The Vintage Doily Runner is one I’ve seen on Pinterest quite a bit lately but there are also fresh, new ideas to be inspired by.
There are lots of cute and homey images and fabrics like you would expect from Gooseberry Patch but if that isn’t your thing projects could easily be made with fabrics YOU love.
Here are some details about the book:
- 30 projects

All-in-all I think it’s a great book for the patterns, ideas and inspiration.
