TOP 100 REVIEWERon 20 September 2010
A neat little book with 20 fabulous projects that will improve your sewing skills. This book is perfect for anyone who loves making things but also makes a superb gift in itself. Techniques and templates support the projects which include bags, cushions, hangings, an ipod case and a sewing roll.

This book contains 20 simple to make projects split into the following sections: Beautiful Bags, Gorgeous Gifts and Perfect Pillows. The projects in this book are gorgeous and are suitable for a beginner, but the items are so nice that a more experienced sewist won't be able to resist either.

For a small book it contains a lot of information, each project has several pages devoted it to it with clear step by step instructions and diagrams to guide you though and by the end of the book you will have picked up many new techniques. I think all the projects in the book (not just those in the gift section) would make brilliants gifts making this book an ideal pre-Christmas purchase.

You will also find a very useful techniques section at the back of the book along with the templates for the projects. I like the fact that at the bottom of the page for each project it tells you what pages to refer to for help with the techniques.

This book is beautifully presented and has some lovely patterns and ideas for things to be made. It's bright, with lovely colours and you can't help but want to read it. It's step by step instructions are also clear and helpful, but in one respect I do believe it misleads. It states it is "simple enough for beginners" but in reality this probably isn't the case.

As a complete beginner, I certainly was not able to pick this book up and start working with it. It assumes that you understand fabrics, cutting and in some cases what the appropriate finishing techniques and stitches are - none of which I knew. Having now read and worked through another book, designed specifically for beginners and advanced on to this book I really do enjoy it but please, don't buy this as your first stab at sewing as it's really not suitable for TRUE beginners.

This book is great. It has fun, easy, creative and simple to use sewing ideas. I found the bag idea's great. The other great thing about this book is that it's small and easy to store inside your sewing box to be close by:)

I agree with the reviews already posted, this book is lovely. It is so cute and gorgeous you'll want to keep it with you where-ever you go. I love it. The images are inspiring and the projects are great for beginners like me, I'm buying another one for my friend, it is a beautiful gift for someone interested in sewing and crafts. Very highly recommended.

This is a nicely put together, well presented and illustrated little book. Whilst it really doesn't have anything very groundbreaking or amazing, it does have a number of pretty little projects which are relatively easy to follow for someone with a small amount of knowledge of stitchwork. I bought it mainly for a few ideas for a workshop for adults with learning difficulties and we have already made a couple of the projects which have turned out successfully and have given much pleasure to the makers - which, in the end, is exactly what I wanted.
