We are writing a step-by-step sewing book!

Following the visionĀ of The Minimi Project we have started writing a sewing book!

We want to share our experiences about the writing process, the creative journey from thinking of the concept to developing the sewing patterns, deciding on colours, fonts, ways of presenting the final pieces and getting all the material ready.

The book will be published in Dutch, since we live in Belgium, but it might get translated in the future.

The idea of the sewing book is that you can sew cool clothes starting from what you already have in your own closet and are not wearing anymore. Everybody has clothes forgotten in their closet that could be used in one of the 20 pieces for kids that we are coming up with.

The philosophy behind the book is: everyone can sew. You can reuse a lot of nice details in existing clothes and make something unique with very little effort.

The title of the book will be Minimi, but at the beginning we were thinking about something like: “Upcycle Mama”
