If you love sewing, you will love this book by Amy Butler. The book is divided by room so you get sewing projects for each room and there are also some fashion items to sew. The instructions are clear and easy, the book comes with an envelop full of patterns ready to use straight away. The list of projects are: decorative patchwork throw, floor cushions, kitty tunnel, big dot pillow, round ruffle pillow, pom pom pillow, placemats and napkins, giftable recipe card bags, apron, square pot holder, patchworks duvet cover, bedside organiser, lounge trouser, sleeping mask, kimono style bathrobe, hanging toiletry basket, laundry bag, hanging towel, CD holder, desktop organizer, document duvet and photo file, fashion checkbook clutch, clutch handbag with fabric flower, scarf with beaded fringe, leather handled shoulder bag, patchwork handbag with zipper charm. Amy butler patterns are usually for sale for about £8 each in UK so this book is a bargain as it comes with so many projects and several patterns.

I bought Amy Butler's In Stitches together with Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing, I was immediately struck by the similarity between the books and their projects. I have to agree with some other reviewers in saying the books scored more on style than content. I was disappointed to find I had to draft many of the projects myself as there was no pattern, this adds so much more time to a project. The projects themselves were either ridiculously simple and needed no instruction, ie hem a piece of cloth and call it a tea towel, or were fiddly and lacking clear instructions, some were just plain pointless, the Giftable Recipe Card Bags, and the Document Duvet for instance. To finish on a more positive note some of the patterns look useful and having spent all that money my pride will ensure I make some of them up.

LOvely book with beautiful photos. Just don't bother buying this AND
Sew-it Kit by Amy Butler as most of the projects in the Sew-it kit are also in the book.
A range of project ideas although can't see me making them all just because I don't need fabric embellished towels or a laundry bag etc.
Beautiful Butler fabric.

I ordered this book along with One-Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Fabric Projects and Sew What! Bags. The difference is huge! These two books have a lot of fantastic and EASY projects with straightforward instructions that are perfect for a beginner like myself. To clarify: I can make simple things like messenger bags, laptop covers and shopping totes, so I am not an absolute beginner. Still, Butler's book is confusing, the patterns complicated and the instructions clear but overwhelming. I have to say the book is really well written and wonderfully presented, and if you are advanced you will find some fascinating and stylish projects in it. However, this book is not saying anything new. Most of the projects can be found in other books (like the One-Yard Wonders) in much simpler and easier versions. For instance, there is a great project for a magazine/glasses/ipod pocket that can hang on the side of the bed: Butler offers the advanced version with a pattern and instructions that gave me a headache just to read through. One-Yard Wonders has the same project but in a MUCH simpler version that you can complete within a couple of hours.

So, I give this book three stars not because it is not good--on the contrary, it is really good--but because it is misleading. I really expected 25 SIMPLE sewing projects, but I did not find this to be the case, especially in comparison to other similar books that make the same claim.

This is a lovely book. The patterns appear to be simple to follow and as usual the design and fabrics are beautiful. Now I just need to find some time to make some of the patterns. I particularly like the short kimono and lounging pants. Will probably try the storage baskets / boxes aswell. Definately worth a look if you like Amy Butler's patterns as this book certainly works out cheaper than buying individual patterns.

I can only give this book the thumbs up. I have used some of Amy Butlers patterns before and after seeing the book and the patterns in it, namely: (a beautiful throw, floor cushions, a kitty tunnel, pillows for the couch, placemats, recipe card bags, an apron, pot holders, patchwork duvet covers, bedside organiser, wide leg lounge pants, a sleeping mask, Kimono style bathrobe and a few more) I just had to buy it. It is great value as you would normally pay about 12 euro for one of her patterns and the book consists of 25 projects. Most patterns are included in the envelope at the front of the book and some you will have to draw out yourself.
So a few of these items may be a little easy for some, but there are projects like the patchwork duvet or the beautiful clutch handbag or the kimono bathrobe that are fabulous. The patterns are very well explained in writing and have very helpful diagrams. I have already started making things and found the instructions easy to understand and if you read every bit your bound to get perfect results.
This book has the kind of projects that let you personalise you and your home and if you like being surrounded by your own unique creations then this is a great start.
