Annie's releases new book of slipper patterns
The book features eight slipper designs to fit children -- both boys and girls -- in sizes from toddler to tweens. The patterns are quick and easy to complete, with step-by-step instructions, full-color photos and templates for each project. Patterns are written for all skill levels and are suitable for beginners.
Also included in the book is an introduction of general sewing and pattern instructions covering how to select the right size pattern, things to consider in fabric selection, and information on stitching specialty fabrics, such as faux fur.
Sew Slippers for Kids will go on sale in July and will be available in select stores and from the Annie's catalog website at AnniesCatalog.com.
Julie Johnson of Fort Wayne, Ind., is the designer of the book's projects. After receiving a clothing and textile degree from Madison Area Technical College, she worked for two different sewing machine companies and traveled the country working at trade shows and state fairs as an educator to sewing machine dealers and consumers.
