All sewing projects tell a story, but the ones made as gifts have the happiest end. Whether you're sewing a baby blanket for a newborn or a quilt for an old friend, the finished project tells both the story of its making and of the future memories to be made.

In her new book, Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love, Kerry Goulder showcases 18 whimsical, endearing projects that will remind you just how fun storytelling can be. From sewn dolls to tote bags, Goulder takes the reader through intricate projects that each come with an imaginative backstory. It's not hard to imagine Piper and Sage the dolls watching some lucky little girl or boy grow up from their hallowed place on the bed or in the toy trunk. Well-designed, adorable, and clearly explained in the tutorials, these are projects that will remain for years as beloved keepsakes.

The projects in Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love vary from simple to intricate, and the skill level required to sew them falls along the same scale. Still, Goulder's step-by-step tutorials are incredibly easy to follow. She includes a detailed photograph of each step, so you can be sure that you aren't making any mistakes.

Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love is a book concerned equally with the process of sewing as the finished project. These are dolls, toys and accessories that Goulder clearly enjoyed designing, and that sense of whimsy and fun will transfer to a sewist following her patterns. These truly are sewing projects that will live a long time in the hearts of the lucky person who receives them.
