Bake Knit Sew showcases a year of creativity in baking, knitting, and sewing. Each month, an original baking recipe is partnered with a knitting pattern or sewing project, made with the seasonally-inspired ingredients and materials. These twelve baking recipes, seven knitting patterns, and five sewing projects are yours to make your own. Written by Evin O’Keeffe, author of the popular blog EvinOK.com. Inspired by her Irish-American Grandma’s recipe box and craftiness, this book showcases a year of creativity in baking, knitting, and sewing. Whether it is sparkly snowflakes and fleecy mittens in the Winter, brave new leaves in the Spring, dandelion clocks flying in the Summer breeze, or golden leaves and honeycomb in the Autumn, the seasons await you with new opportunity for creativity.
In this age of mass consumption and branding, there is magic in being able to create something unique and special. Something all your own, from the heart. The materials were carefully chosen from local artisans in Ireland and Nova Scotia who sell globally online, most of whom are woman-owned and operated. The recipes were perfected over generations, then given a modern twist and tested by volunteers. Each knitting and sewing pattern was tried and tested as well. Finally, this book was funded by an enthusiastic crowd of Kickstarter backers.
A complete year of projects! Over 50 full-color photographs shot on location in scenic Cork, Ireland make this book a feast for the eyes as well as an inspiration in the kitchen and at the craft table. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how simple it is to make and create these functional projects from scratch.
