Do you love to sew but can’t seem to find the inspiration for your next project? If you are an advanced sewer, then this may be the inspiration for projects in every room that you have been waiting for. Home Sewn: Projects and Inspiration for Every Room can be a great inspiration for your upcoming projects if you are an advanced sewer but may be discouraging for those just starting out.
Although the book is a decent read and has some cute sewing ideas for the home, it lacked details. I found that the book lacked some important instructions. Yes, you can find the step-by-step instructions in the book. However, there are no real detailed instructions for the steps. Some of the projects that are listed in the book are very simple and easy to do. There are some that are more complicated and would be for advanced sewers, and the book lacks the detailed instructions for those that have never performed certain sewing tasks.
I do want to try out some of the projects in the book like the linen ottomans, the roll-up blinds, scrappy-quilt sofa throw, and the sari quilt. As well as maybe a few others. I’ll just need to do some research on some of the instructions since the book lacks details on how to do some of the things as well as what the best material is for stuffing. For the linen ottomans, the author lacks telling you the best choice of filling, only telling you that it’s “Up to you.”
Similarly, the instructions for the roll-up blinds lack detailed instructions for several parts of the instructions. This could be because I’ve never done any projects similar to this, and I’m not sure how to do the steps.

I would recommend the book to those who are more advanced with sewing crafts. However, I wouldn’t recommend it for those just starting out.
