I LOVE this book. Gorgeous pictures, simple instructions. I haven't had the opportunity to make anything from the book but I will.
Review by bookcaterpillar
This book is everything that I want a simple, beginner craft book to be! Her instructions tell you precisely what type of fabric should be used and why. In fact, sometimes the instructions border on the "isn't that obvious?" variety. In my experience, it is the little (obvious to some) details that go overlooked and are missing from pattern books. I like that each pattern easily complements the next and that this collection of patterns truly can be made for one household. I also like that they range from the simple afternoon project (e.g. placemats & napkins) to the more complex (e.g. quilt).
