My Craft Book, “Crafting with Flannel”, is Now Available!

The wait was long, but I’m THRILLED to announce that my craft book, “Crafting with Flannel”, has been officially released and is available for purchase!

After so many production delays due to all of 2020’s shenanigans, it feels AMAZING to finally hold it in my hands.

I feel as if I’ve been thinking and talking about this book forever. In fact, you may already be sick of hearing about it!

But I wanted to make sure I announced its official release here on my blog, in case you don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram

What’s Inside My Craft Book?

As most of you already know, I’ve been making flannel crafts on my blog for several years. So, it’s a natural fit for me to write a book- THE book- on crafting with flannel.

There are 55 projects in my craft book. Many of them involve flannel shirts (no surprise), but there are quite a few that use fresh flannel fabric from Joann Fabrics, as well.

A handful of projects were inspired by projects (flannel or otherwise) that have appeared on my blog in the past. But the vast majority of tutorials in my craft book are brand new and were never published before.

I wouldn’t want anyone to feel like they wasted their hard-earned money on a book full of projects that were already available online.

Like most of the ideas on my blog, though, the craft projects err on the “simple” side. And yes, there are lots of projects that involve basic sewing skills. But there are also plenty of ideas for non-sewists, as well.

Perhaps what I am most proud of, though, is that I did everything in the book. All the writing, and all the photos (save for any photos of me) were my doing. So, it is 100% authentically ME.

Gratitude and Thanks

I’ve already heard such wonderful things from many of you about the book. Your kind words (and 5-star reviews on Amazon!) have truly buoyed me during an unfortunately sad time (i.e., losing Wrigley recently).

I won’t lie- releasing a craft book during a pandemic has been less than ideal. No in-person events at local bookstores and libraries, etc. But, it is what it is and I’m trying to make the best of it.

And hearing enthusiastic reviews of the book has been just wonderful! So, I sincerely thank everyone from the bottom of the heart for having faith, purchasing it, and reviewing it with glowing words.

If you would like to purchase a signed/personalized copy of the book directly from me, I’m happy to work with you on that. Please note, however, that this will be a more costly option due to postage plus the cost of the book.

I also know that other bloggers will be hosting book giveaways, as well. Please make sure you follow me on Instagram and Facebook to find out about those as they happen!

A Labor of Craft Book Love

Of course, this begs the question- will I write a second craft book?

Another book, yes. Another craft book? Maybe…

Ultimately, I want to stretch my creative muscles with an attempt at a novel. I’ve had a couple of plot ideas rumbling around in my head for a few years now.

I’m not ruling out a second craft book, though. I just want to try my hand at fiction next.

No matter what happens, though, I am thrilled at how my first book turned out. And I’m ecstatic that, so far, the reviews have been positive!

Hate Amazon? It’s also available (online only) at Target, Walmart, and Barnes & Noble, as well.

And if you really did love it, please, PLEASE, leave a 5-star review. I sincerely appreciate it!

Craft on!

  1. Laying on my couch enjoying your book right now!! Was so excited to get it the other day!

  2. Awesome, Sarah!! Congratulations!!

  3. Congratulations! I’m sure it’s full of wonderful ideas… can’t wait to see if I win a signed copy, but if not, I’ll probably buy one anyway.

    I’m not sure who Wrigley was – (assuming cat or dog), but I’m very sorry for your loss.

    • Sadie Seasongoods says

      Thank you, Margaret- and yes, Wrigley was my sweet old man kitty. He’d been in my life for nearly 18 years, so it’s quite the adjustment. 🙁

      Good luck!

  4. Scotty Race says

    congratulations! just wonderful ideas!!!!!

  5. Congratulations, this is so exciting!!


  6. Congratulations Sadie! I’d love to enter the draw but I live in Canada! Best wishes for great success with all of your books!

  7. Wendy Oyler says

    So glad your book is finally published. I would certainly LOVE to win a copy, but if not, I will still order. You are an amazing crafter and I love how you repurpose things! Congratulations!

  8. Love that you have done this! I have always enjoyed your blog- your ideas are so fresh and fun! Congratulations!!!!

  9. Anita Gash says

    Enjoying your book! Bought copies for my granddaughter and stepmom. I’m not a crafter but looking through the book I found several projects I’d like to try.

    • Sadie Seasongoods says

      Thank you so very much, Anita- I sincerely appreciate it! It just feels amazing to finally see it and hold it in my hands after working so hard on it and then dealing with COV-19 delays!

  10. Congrats!!

  11. Amanda Pennington says

    Congratulations! What an accomplishment to be proud of, especially doing the crafting, writing AND photography yourself! Each area requires such a different skill set and you nailed all 3 in a lovely, well-reviewed, published work in the middle of a pandemic. That’s absolutely awesome, I can’t wait to enjoy it! Hats off to you.

  12. Helen Jane Peters says

    Love, love, love your book Sadie. And to think you did it all by yourself. Outstanding. Ideas, text, directions and photos!! Amazing. Because of my Scottish heritage, I love everything plaid/tartan. Must get out my old wool tartan skirts from high school.

  13. Elizabeth Mims says

    Are they selling it at Barnes & Nobel?

  14. I didn’t know that there were so many projects you can do with flannel you got me thinking!

  15. Congratulations, what an awesome accomplishment Sarah! I am so happy for you. Again, my heartfelt sympathies go out to you. xoxo
