The book offers instructions on making a range of things from beautiful book jackets, cushions, quilted style blankets, needle cases, curtains, bathroom mats and much more. It is not hard to imagine how you could really transform your home with these projects. The instructions are written clearly and illustrated with diagrams which really helped a novice like me understand what I was supposed to be doing. Clear guidance is given on what is needed for each project and the estimated time it will take you to complete each one. There is something in this book for everyone - from beginner to accomplished sewer, and you don't need a fancy sewing machine to complete the projects - I rescued my antique Jones sewing machine out of the garage which can only do 3 different lengths of stitch. It really is a beautiful book, I love it.
I have just completed my first project - a fabric recipe book jacket. I am really pleased with the finished result - it looks like something you would buy in the shops and has inspired me to make a few more as gifts. I have gone from being a bit nervous and dubious of my own ability to planning my next project with excitement and confidence.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves sewing. You won't be disappointed.
You should be in doubt, you do need this book!!
There are projects of all sizes and for each area in the home, the best part I like about it, is the aprox time it takes to complete. I am sure it takes me a lot longer, but it is usefull to know if something is going to take 1 hour or 3.
At the back is a technique guide which is great if like me you have no clue how to sew for example a running stich! I have made lots of things out of this book already and ordered another 2 of her books.
Very simple instructions to follow and great unique ideas
I agree with the other reviwer who said that the bath mat instructions were wrong and that it was too much hassle to try to re-do them. Maybe someone with more experience of sewing could do this with no effort but dont forget, this book is aimed at newbies like myself.
