4.0 out of 5 stars Sew recycled fabrics, 4 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Sew Fabulous Fabric: 20 Charming Ways to Sew Fabrics into Your Life (Paperback)
This book is very simple in terms of items to make, and how to make them, and as always with David & Charles craft books the presentation is good. When I first looked at it I wasn't sure about the content - not really inspirational and when one project starts with "take one pair of unlined ready made curtains" I wonder why you wouldn't buy a suitable pair in the first place?

Apart from that one puzzler I've decided I like a lot of the projects after all. One project is a sunflower applique picture decorated with beads,and complete with instructions and templates, on the same page there are 2 other pictures - one of a poppy and another of a pansy - these can also be made. The flower corsages, bags and purses are lovely, there's a delightful soft toy dog (made from soft woollen check fabric and white wool), also included are a couple of aprons made from several different pieces of fabric nicely constructed(odd fat quarters would work well). A patchwork cushion with an embroidered centre, and a wall height chart are included.

I've already have a request for the pegbag (appliqued with a clothes line of washing). Some items could be made by children if an adult took care of the machining and there are opportunities to involve children in making several of the items. Templates are given at the back - the downside is that all must be enlarged - if you can cope with re-drawing them, or pay for them to be photocopied OK - if not you may want to give this a miss.
