great range of patterns
on 17 November 2010
Hats off to Laura for not jumping on the Scandinavian bandwagon. Although I love the Scandinavian style, it's being done to death and no-one does it as good as Tone Finnanger in my opinion. So it's nice to see someone who has followed her own style. This book scores in many ways - it looks good, the contents are top quality and biggest bonus of all - it has full size patterns.
Fashionable clothes for kids - I'm thinking that summer hat will fit me. A selection of bags, cushions, makes for the table, aprons, pyjamas, a quilt and gorgeous little playhouses. A very basic techniques section, so if you are completely new to sewing, you may need a techniques book. Great for a gift for the avid sewer. Suitable for a wide audience - I could well imagine anyone from 14 to 60 loving this book. You really are missing out if you do not buy this. It will be a firm favourite if you love stylish things for your home and family. This is my favourite book I have seen of this kind. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.
