This is an amazing little book, a total little gem I'm thrilled to have in my textile book collection stuffed full of brilliant little projects!!
I'm thrilled this book encloses patterns, which many craft books I've recently come across haven't bothered including. The patters are half actually size, as the projects aren't large, this can be achieved with a home printer.
The projects are
1. Patchwork dog
2. Bookmark & book cover (beautiful)
3. Drawstring bag (small and fabulous)
4. Thread pot (super cute)
5. Mini bunting (pretty)
6. Hanging fish (my favourite)
7. Flower hair snap
8. Stacked Pincushion (handy to use up odds and ends)
9. Hair Scrunchy
10. Plastic bag despencer (useful to make gifts)
11. Russian Dolls
12. Needle Book (good for a totally new sewer)
13. Buttoned up cushion cover (stunning)
14 itsy Bitsy bag (love this, but I would like to make a lager version, great as a small gift bag!)
15. Tissue Pouch (incredibly useful, brilliant to make as gifts, love it!!)
16. Sunshine pot mat (this involves making a small Dresden plate circle and a spot of beautiful hand quilting, very beautiful)
17. Patchwork placemat (love the concept would make it into the front of a bag)
18. Pincushion scissor keeper. (Very sweet, good practice in using hexagons)
19. Tabby cat cushion
20. Coin Pouch

One of the best thing about this book, is it caters for all skill levels.
This book is also an excellent resource to try out this small project to learn new skills without committing to a large project.
I have so much fabric left overs from other projects and this book will be great to use up all those fabulous fabrics in creating beautiful gifts.

I am an experienced sewer and thought this would be a good way of using up all those scraps you end up with.
I have attempted two patterns both were difficult to follow and did not turn out anything like picture.
Do not waste your money on this book there are better ones on the market

It's a very simplistic book and is probably more for total beginners to patchwork. OK for some of the bigger projects.

I like some of the projects but quite a few are very similar. Time will tell if this becomes a well thumbed tome.

This book is okay. There's not a lot in it I want to make but it depends what you're looking for. The bag on the cover is a lot smaller than I expected and there are things like pot holders and tissue box covers that I find a bit redundant. Lots of little projects to make up quickly. Templates are a bit small - have to be enlarged. Overall I don't think I would have bought this book if I'd looked at it first but I suppose the name tells you what it is, using up scraps. I'm sure it will suit some people.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 7 January 2014
In the Twenty To Make Series, this book features quick and easy projects to use jelly roll scraps and mini charms. There is a one page tips and techniques section and two pages of templates to enlarge. The remainder of the book shows the 20 projects. Each project is shown over two pages. The description and techniques are clear and there is a superb photo of every project. Make hanging fish, a patchwork dog, drawstring bag, pin cushion, tissue pouch and other useful items. An excellent little book.

Great ways of using up small oddments of material. Plenty of ideas for making unusual creative gifts for presents and for the home.
