Featuring kitchen-centric sewing patterns from 13 different designers, Kitchen Stitches: Sewing Projects to Spice Up Your Home is the only book you need if you’re looking for ideas for fabric kitchen accessories. This extensive book, compiled by Karen M. Burns, is full of different thematic ideas for all your kitchen needs, from aprons and pot holders to table runners and napkins.

Divided into three major categories, cooking aids and supplies, table setting, and the rest, each pattern in this book is fully laid out and explained in thorough detail. Each individual project is grouped into a certain theme within each category, so you’ll get an apron, basket liner, and baguette tote together as a “French-Farmhouse Chef” theme, for example. For almost every step of the process there is a diagram that accompanies the directions so that you have a constant visual of how you’re supposed to proceed. Bright and vivid full-color photographs are included for every project to give you an idea of the finished product. At various places throughout the tutorial, each designer sometimes offers her own tips on a particular technique or step.

Boasting just under 30 projects, Kitchen Stitches is the perfect book to use as the inspiration and guide for your kitchen update. With project diagrams and color photos, even the most novice sewer can sit down at a sewing machine and turn out any of these projects. As if all that wasn’t enough on its own, there are pattern templates included for every project that requires a specific shape, eliminating the guesswork and uncertainty from your work.

Karen Burns has done a fantastic job compiling all these patterns and projects that work so well together. Give your kitchen a much-needed makeover, or make any number of these projects as a housewarming gift. Your kitchen will thank you.
