Super Simple Sewing,
This review is from: Happy Home: Twenty Sewing and Craft Projects to Pretty Up Your Home: Twenty-One Sewing and Craft Projects to Pretty Up Your Home (Hardcover)Fabulous fabrics give this book the wow factor, and if you're not an amazingly experienced sewer, give it another wow because everything is easy.
Plenty of lovely, clean, bright fabrics to shop for and items that are easily achievable to end up with. Some items need small pieces of fabric such as a patchworker will have, but most items are made with yardage, and as such are easier and cheaper to buy fabric for.
The fabrics are from Jennifer's own company -Sis Boom, and shows them used as large cushions with trims around the edges, table cloth with napkins, laundry bags, bunting, there's a doggy bed cover and also covered boxes to store your bits and bobs in.
The patterns are all full size and in a handy pocket at the front of the book.
I think this book is likely to inspire anyone new to sewing but, on the downside, there's nothing actually new in here, and unless you don't have any books on basic makes you won't need this for instructions. If the look of this appeals to you, and you have books on simple makes, then save your money for the fabrics.
