5.0 out of 5 stars Another Brilliant book from a brilliantly talented Lady, 28 Aug. 2015

Another Brilliant book from a brilliantly talented Lady.
The projects at things one would actually want to make. I love the Draught Excluder and the Cactus Pincushion, which is very quirky.

Debbie doesn't do jargon, she keeps it simple and the instructions are easy to follow, along with clear photographs for each step.

If you buy this book you will not be disappointed. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a brilliant book. I was pleasantly surprised at how many ..., 31 May 2015

What a brilliant book. I was pleasantly surprised at how many different styles of makes Debbie has managed to cram into this book.
Even my daughter, who doesn't sew, was impressed, liking very much the monochrome chapter.

The projects in the book range from very simple to a little more advanced, but a novice sewist would be able to produce all the items in the book and more advanced sewists would have no problems in tweaking the projects to put their own stamp on them.

All in all a very comprehensive book with beautiful photos all taken by Debbies professional photographer husband.

Buy the book... it's fab!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING!!!, 25 Mar. 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed this e-book. The concept of an e-book is very new to me as I am not particularly technically minded but this book was very easy to navigate around and the interactive videos are a dream. It's like having a Masterclass with Debbie herself.

Although I thought these gorgeous looking pin cushions would be very difficult to make.... I was shocked to see how easy they were..... thank goodness for glue guns!

I want to make every single pin cushion in the book..... my favourite one has to be the gothic one.

I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone. There are pprojects for total beginners as well as those more confident. Go for it... I promise you will love it!!

Thanks Our Deb for yet another awesome book. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!

Many different bears with full sized patterns, clothes patterns and instructions for each bear, Instructions for doing the bear faces with different ideas on stitching the nose and mouth to give different character faces.

Another wonderful book by Debbie Shore.
This book contains so many different and simple projects which look so effective.
Debbie has included a tips section before you start, with beautiful coloured photographs, showing different stitches, how to stitch bias binding to a circular item and then follows many different projects from homewares to gifts.
Inspiring to both the beginner and experienced sewists and all projects look professional.

Don't even think about it... buy this book. Trust me you will be impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 13 Sept. 2013
I have Debbie's previous books and DVDs and this latest one does not disappoint in any way.
I have looked at the smocked and pleated cushions in the shops, wishing I could replicate them but having no idea how. They looked so complicated.
Not any longer...... Debbie takes you into this mysterious and fascinating world and shows you how easy these designs are to create... and I do mean EASY.

If you can draw a simple grid and sew two stitches together.... you can smock!
When I saw how easy it was I felt like a great secret had been imparted to me, like the secret of eternal youth.. hehe.
With grid and pattern Debbie gives you the tools to create some beautiful... and very expensive looking cushions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Book, 9 Sept. 2013
I bought this book a couple of years ago and it was well worth the money. The patterns for all the sizes of dolls, their clothing and hair designs are all at the correct size. You just have to trace them off and get sewing. The instructions for each doll and the assembling of the clothing is extremely clear and step by step. There are a good range of dolls to make, both boys and girls.
I have made 2 of the dolls and they both turned out looking exactly like the pictures in the book. I am a total novice and found the instructions very easy to follow. I will be making more.

I highly recommend this book

3.0 out of 5 stars My Review, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be honest This book is more like a pamphlet and vastly overpriced for what it is.

The projects were ok but not particularly inspiring. You can do much more with the Simplicity Felting machine than the ideas shown in the book.

To get the most out of your machine, think outside of the box.
I have felted strips of fabrics woven together and made background fabrics for cushion covers, on top of which i have added applique shapes.

To enable anything you felt, to stay permenant, one needs to felt the item from the front, then the back and then back on the front again. The book does not make this clear.
