Even my husband couldn't help!!
on 29 December 2014
Different ideas on each page but I get the feeling that some of the patterns in this book have been condensed to fit. I started out with the 'simple' table runner and found with the odd word missing here and there and complicated references I needed to get my husband (yes I know!!) to try out his logical approach to instructions and help me out. Easily misleading. I got in to a real mess and even after scrapping my hard work I still couldn't work out how I went wrong. But I did!! There are other patterns to try but I think I will give them a break before I go back to it. None of the patterns are what I would call 'simple' either. If you aren't capable of fitting a zip for example, you aren't going to be able to do at least half of them. Oh, I hate to say it, but I would avoid this unless you are really competent on the sewing machine to start with.
