Book Description

25 Jun 2010
This title allows you to look at the features in your trusty sewing machine in a completely new light and discover how practical functions and stitch settings can become creative goldmines. A mixture of feature spreads that burst with tips, ideas, tricks, inspirations, and creative projects covering everything from applique and quilting to using scrap fabric for sewing that's a bit more 'off-piste'. The flexible 'dip-into' format makes for a highly accessible and inspirational product - funky page layouts hold a wealth of must-know bite-size information. It is a 'go-to' book that will be referred to again and again for sewing techniques and inspiration, even as the same reader's confidence and skills grow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well I think it's cool 10 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
I think this book is great - really modern and funky with tonnes of ideas, techniques and projects to get your teeth into - just what I need to revitalize my enthusiasm for my sewing machine. I suppose it is not to everyone's tastes but I think it is a real fresh take on sewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and inspiring! 10 Feb 2011
By AnaBea
Format:Paperback
I liked the look of this book - I got a sewing machine for christmas and really wanted to learn how to use it. This book didn't teach me HOW to use it, but showed me loads of cool things I could use it for. I especially liked the section about sewing on materials like plastic - the bag project is great and I'm going to have a go. Lots to read too - curled up on the sofa with it for a really good browse for good ideas and inspiration. Great fun book and cool design too!

5.0 out of 5 stars FAB2 18 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Great book. I bought the sister book to this as well, ie, Make the most out of your clothes. A well constructed book, easy to read and understand instructions. Loads of good ideas on what to make which certainly inspired me to come with some of my own. I would recommend this book and the other one. Do look through it though in case you think the ideas are all too easy. They were just right for me.
