My Handmade World

My Handmade World includes 15 original sewing patterns that incorporate Giovanna Monfeli’s eye for detail and her unseen mastery in shaping fabric into amazing objects.


The patterns range in difficulty, so beginners may easily complete projects from start to finish, while other patterns will challenge a more advanced sewer to learn some new techniques. Projects include gorgeous nursery mobiles, cute keychains, soft pillows, an adorable doorstop, a handy paperweight, as well as toy animals and poufs that will decorate your living room, and many more.


Instructions are thoughtfully hand-illustrated throughout in a clean and simple style and the inspiring photographs showcase the possibilities using different color combinations or fabrics.

Giovanna Monfeli (Rome, Italy) finds pleasure in analyzing the construction of everyday objects. She spent hours looking at the skilled hands of her grandmother, working on her old sewing machine. By looking at her work, she learned sewing from scratch. Her imagination now comes to life in her beautiful and super detailed and ingenious patterns.
