In Stitched in Time Alicia Paulson shares 30 beautiful, inventive, and thoughtful projects that encourage you to take your memories down from the bookshelf, out of the closet, or off the hard drive and bring them into your daily life. Creator of a charming line of handmade gifts and accessories called Posie: Rosy Little Things, Paulson organizes these adorable handmade mementos—each one incorporating unique elements such as photos, drawings, and other ephemera—into three sections: For the Little Ones, For Every Day, and For Special Occasions. Many projects are easy enough for the beginning sewer to complete, and Paulson explains all the necessary techniques, from hand- and machine-sewing to embroidery, appliqué, stenciling, and transferring photos to fabric.
In as little as a weekend anyone can create a keepsake for the ages that will be enjoyed every day—whether it’s a quilt made from outgrown baby clothes, an apron featuring a favorite family recipe, a tote bag documenting a treasured vacation, or a stuffed animal fashioned from a child’s drawing. With love incorporated into every stitch, these sweet projects each evoke the feeling of a special time and place, and are so much more than just a commemoration of events. Whether you want to remember your family summers at the beach or a daughter’s first apartment, a perfect gift for a loved one or a memento to keep all to yourself is just stitches away.

Ah, the joys of technology, which can, in (almost) split seconds, photocopy old family photos onto treated fabric and transform wedding-guest signatures atop a picture frame. What’s even more remarkable is the way Oregon designer Paulson pays homage to the power of memories while imaginatively repurposing scrapbook-type items into keepsakes. Thirty projects fall into one of three categories—for babies, for everyday, and for special occasions—all with casual instructions that rely on only the basic knowledge of sewing, embroidery, and finishing. “Welcome Stork” greeting cards become a mobile in a baby’s room. Patches of Mom’s and Dad’s clothing are stitched into a first-apartment laundry bag. All directions, narratives, and tips and hints are intended to seduce even beginners into fabricating their first memorabilia; who could resist a two-page spread on the ease of taking pictures? One more poignant touch, much in line with the warmth of the author’s crafts: the book is dedicated to her first corgi: Audrey, a good dog, queen of my heart. Appended are general sewing techniques: hand sewing, transferring photos to fabrics, embroidery, appliqué, freezer-paper stenciling. --Barbara Jacobs
