Lena Corwin's Made by Hand

Gone are the days of a crafter only having a single interest. Between Design*Sponge, Apartment Therapy, Pinterest, and thousands of gorgeous blogs, today’s makers are constantly inspired to make things by hand. All a crafter really needs are inspirational examples and excellent step-by-step instructions. Made by Hand provides plenty of both. The talented Lena Corwin shares a wide array of crafts—including advanced screen-printing, beginner’s embroidery, simple sewn dresses, beaded jewelry, candle making, and soap making—in her new book, which is packed with gorgeous photos. A great gift for any crafter.

Literary Knits by N. Lohr

If you’ve ever had a hard time deciding whether to knit or read, you’ll understand how 100% awesome this book is. How could you not love mittens based off civil war-era patterns and a copy of Little Women? Or a cabled fisherman’s sweater and Moby Dick? A lined hood with a color-worked ermine and The Golden Compass? A hand warmer muff and Anna Karenina? It’s time: knitters and bookworms, UNITE!

Mend It Better by Kristin M. Roach

For anyone who’s ever gotten a hole in their sweater, ripped their favorite jeans, wished for pockets where there were none, or wanted to change the length of a skirt, this is the book for you. Mend It Better is an incredibly charming, easy-to-use, and, dare I say, fun book about mending. Crafters, sewers, and anyone interesting in patching or repurposing clothes, bags, and more will adore it. The critics love it, too: “An excellent addition to any sewer’s collection. This is the rare sewing book that will be pulled off the shelf for reference again and again.” —Publishers Weekly.

Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman

I love the seasonal layout of this all-encompassing guide to style, beauty, home, food, and entertaining. This summer I've learned how to utilize local fruit, make a mint julep, find the perfect vintage sun dress, and give myself beachy tousled hair. To look forward to this fall? Wearing tights right, rocking bright lipstick, and decorating for Halloween on a budget.
