Sewing Happiness

A Year of Simple Projects for Living Well
Sanae Ishida


Inspired to succeed at just one thing, the author vowed to sew all of her daughter's clothes (and most of her own) for one year. This is the story of that year and how doing one thing right inspired her to cultivate many happy habits.

The book consists of 20 simple sewing projects plus variations (including Japanese-inspired home goods, children's and women's clothing), stitched together with charming and relatable personal stories about how sewing brought the author profound happiness. Part 1 includes the incredibly moving essays as well as a look-book of photos of the projects, and Part 2 includes all the instructions with detailed illustrations. The book is 30% memoir and 70% practical sewing projects.
