When Daisy Braid started sewing, patterns were out of her budget – so she just started DIYing! Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy is a colourful, size-inclusive and inspiring book for sewers of all stages and abilities, beginners included. It includes guides on everything you need to get started (including equipment, materials and basic techniques) and step-by-step projects with clear instructions, photographs and illustrations that will take the scary out of sewing. Daisy’s designs use simple shapes to create playful, classic and comfortable pieces that can be styled for all occasions, whether that’s a picnic date or a work from home day. The book features ten small accessory projects and ten more advanced clothing projects, each with a fun variation (but with potential for endless customisation). There’s no standard sizing – just your own body measurements – and no zips or buttons required! They also encourage intentional sewing practices, with projects that produce minimal waste and can even be made with leftover fabric scraps. 

So get out that sewing machine (or borrow one from your granny) and join Daisy Braid (aka DIY Daisy) as she shares her tips and tricks for getting started in sewing something one-of-a-kind. Books will be available for purchase on the day or bring your copy from home to be signed. To reserve your place phone the library (07 3407 1490).
