I feel like there is a strong overlap between people who love to sew and people who love to read! I’ve been working on a list of sewing-related books to read but first I’ll share this post of sewing and hand embroidery patterns that are perfect for book lovers. I’ve got book-ish quilts, reading accessories, hand stitched books, and more!
