Nervous about sewing along curved edges? Fear not! This book only includes patterns that can be sewn using straight lines. Many of the projects can be altered so intermediate or advanced sewers will find inspiration among these pages.

This book is inspiring. If you aren't interested in the skirt on the cover, take a look inside at the beginners quilts, cardigans and totes. A great confidence builder.

I am a beginner and this book is great that I have learnt a few new things. There are many projects for beginners, from clothing to household items. No pattern required, just measure, cut and sew. The instructions are easy to follow.

Add a Summary

Dec 02, 2012

This is a great little book for quick and easy craft projects and simple sewing. The beginning of the book has information on getting started, that is, basic tools that are needed, basic stitching by hand techniques, basic stitching by machine techniques, basic sewing techniques, and fabric basics. Each design is easy to finish with great instructions. Each design starts with finished dimensions, supplies needed, fabric suggestions and any notes needed. Next it goes into details about measure and cut, then how to sew or put the item together, then finishing touches for the item. There are also pictures to show the end product as well as details throughout the making of the item to know how things should be along the way. Not to mention there is a “Go Custom”, for example, section as well. There are lots of helpful hints from working with chiffon to patterns to tips of how to create the item. It is a great book for first time or beginner sewers, but also great for easy projects for experienced seamstresses as well. Sometimes the funniest things are the easiest. Not everything has to be difficult and many seamstresses tend to do this, I know from experience. Great book.
