I ordered this mostly going by the front cover and the name of the book. I wanted a book of sewing projects that would be fun and imaginative and relatively easy to sew. I don't have a huge amount of experience with sewing so the 'easy' bit was important to me.
The book contains 24 projects: things like simple tote style bags, a pincushion, pencil case, table mats, a photo frame and a box. I didn't expect to say this but I was disappointed that the projects are by and large, too easy! There are a few things (like a zip organizer and a handbag) which are more complex and require more time and concentration but all in all, the projects are really straightforward. This is not a bad thing as if you're a beginner, you would want simple projects. The problem is that as a beginner, you would really benefit from diagrams or photos that visually show how to do everything step by step, which you actually don't get here - it's all just written instruction.
I think maybe this book is probably best used as a source of style inspiration, if this is the kind of style you want to use in your sewing projects. I can imagine if you've been sewing for a while, the projects themselves are just going to be too simple for you but you might still get something from the way fabrics are put together to create that modern, natural linen style. I DO like the book and I found a few new projects that I don't already have in other books and I think the style of the projects is lovely. I just wish there had been projects suitable for different levels (it doesn't say the book's just for beginners after all) and a few diagrams would have been great.
