Very TWEE for Mums & Young Children,
This review is from: Creative Makers: Simple Sewing with Lola Nova (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unfortunately this book was just not for me - most of the designs were for things I just would not make - the small sort of things you can pick up quite cheaply at craft sales - not ones you would want to spend time making yourself.
However one thing that I might make is the HOOK BOOK - a roll up case for small items like crochet hooks or brushes - (I made a similar one for knitting needles years ago and still use it) - this one looks like it would be worth making.
This book is definitely aimed at people with lots of time on their hands! The author lives in America and maybe this appeals more to the market over there.
It has suggestions for using old/vintage materials and if you have these or can pick them up at charity shops then this would be useful.
Many of the clothes/items are for young children.
The book is aimed at beginners and is nice to look at with many good photographs and instructions - it might make a good present for a young person wanting to try out some sewing.
