Should have listened to some of you guys!
on 24 January 2010
I really should have listened to some of the critical reviews before I bought this book! I have only myself to blame - I even "Looked Inside"!
It's a lovely book of its sort but there is nothing new in it for me. I find it nice to flick through in bed on a Sunday morning but can't see myself making much from it.
I've given it 3 stars - not because of my personal preferences but because it bears the dreaded words "These templates are printed at 50% of their correct size. To use scale them up to 200% on a photocopier" and "Draw up full size on paper"
In the case of the aprons how much easier just to give dimensions or even to print a - full size - template for the top shaping for the arms?
Having said that it's an attractive book, nicely laid out and with a number of projects suitable for beginners: ribbon tie cushions; no-sew curtains; simple bags etc and it's not exactly expensive.
