A little french sewing excitement, 9 Jan. 2012
I bought this book having purchased a couple of french sewing books from Amazon France which offer something a little different from the norm. This one does not disappoint with gorgeous inspiring photographs and lovely projects including an applique bag; corsages; book cover; a hanging heart with pockets for momentoes and notes; a patchwork cover/quilt; a sweet angel and garland; mobile of little houses and patchwrk vehicles; little rag doll; wall hanging; birds in a cage; pictures; lovely sewing case with fabric roses; sewing bag; fabric decorations and a garland all made from vintage linens; lace and pretty vintage trims. This is the perfect book for fans of vintage french fabric and most of the projects do not take much material to complete. There are patterns and photocopiable pages for decoupage/ printing onto fabric. However I think only an experienced crafter would get away with a scant knowledge of french and able to make the items from looking at the pictures, as the book is written in french only.
