Many of us are stuck at home during the Coronavirus pandemic looking for activities to challenge and engage ourselves. If you’re a creative individual, I think you may enjoy White Owl Books’ new Craft Series. Eight titles will be rolled out this year including Seasonal Plant Dyes, Modern Rainbow Patchwork Quilts, Sewing Animal Dolls and more.
White Owl Books has teamed up with one of the industry’s leading content creation teams to produce this beautiful series of craft guides for people who are currently at home and looking for activities to do.
Each craft guide starts at a “beginner’s stage,” and builds to more complex projects using the skills acquired along the way. The guides are thoughtfully assembled and easy to understand.
In Modern Rainbow Patchwork Quilts, readers will learn the basics of color and fabric selection, work through tutorials on construction techniques and then create quilt projects, cushion projects and mini projects.
In Seasonal Plant Dyes, crafters will learn how to harvest plants, choose fabrics, identify dying tools, and dying basics. Later chapters discuss varieties of seasonal plants along with offering seasonal projects, such as the Spring Project, a linen cushion cover, using green, red, pink, mustard and yellow plant-dyed linen.
Sewing Animal Dolls offers everything you need to know to create Daisy Dog & Mimi Puppy, Rosie Rabbit, and Ben & Betty Bear, along with Fairy Dress Up and Sleepover projects for your completed dolls.
Titles rolling out later in the year include Modern Brush Lettering, Amigurumi Style Crochet, Floral Embroidery, Colorful Fun Embroidery and Craft Your Own Happy.
