Cute Clothes for Kids by Rob Merrett
Cute Clothes for Kids by Rob Merrett
This is a brilliant book. The patterns are easy to follow and make up. The clothes are lovely and are really children's clothes, not adult clothes in children's sizes, if you know what I mean. I've made 2 patterns already- the romper and the pinafore dress. There is a size chart - at the back of the book just before the pull out patterns so I don't know why another reviewer said there isn't a size chart. I'm an intermediate sewer and I find this book very easy to use. A confident beginner could definitely manage most of the patterns in this book.
Pirastro Oliv and Evah Pirazzi Dark Violin Rosin by Pirastro
1.0 out of 5 stars this stuff sucks big time, 29 April 2014
I got given a cake of this as a complimentary gift after buying an advanced student violin. this stuff is ever so soft and it felt like it was weighing down and coating my strings and the sound quality was more scratchy. maybe it wasn't the best rosin for my particular strings but I think I'll stick with my budget pirastro piranito. I do live in a hot climate (Africa) and apparently harder rosins are better for hot climates.
Violin Exam Pieces 20122015, ABRSM Grade 2, Score,&hellip by ABRSM
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
This book is essential for ABRSM exams because they don't allow you to play from photocopied music. The cd has the alternate pieces as well (and I fell in love with hedwigs theme and had to buy the book for that as well). The print is nice and clear and the piano music pulls out for the pianist. This book is exactly what the title suggests so don't be surprised when you find that it only contains the 9 pieces of music for the exam (u have to choose 3 pieces).
