Cynthia has literally written the book
and I can't wait to
peek inside its pages!

Last-Minute Fabric Gifts: 30 Hand-Sew, Machine-Sew, and No-Sew Projects (Sewing)

The idea of creating these sweetly chic beauties
to give as holiday or birthday gifts
has genuine appeal, yet...

Felt Penguin Kit

how would I ever hand them over?!?
Think I'll hand over the kits instead since
I know many kids and grown-up kids
who would love to make them.

Cynthia is working on the next book
(sewing and embellishment techniques),
and I am so grateful she shared a few
glimpses of her gorgeous artistry.

Learn more about the artist at her blog.

I'll keep you posted on the new book
and do consider the felt kits as you holiday shop.

Perfect gifts for those 8 years and up,
and requiring only basic sewing
(a whipstitch).

Which little Cynthia Treen kit is your favorite?

Peace to you right where you are.
