The reviews I have read so far about this book all seemed to think it was geared more towards a beginner seamstress. I have been sewing for 25 years and I learned a lot of new things from this book! Amy Karol has a great writing style and sounds like a friend. She goes over basics but she also covers more difficult topics, too. Her explanation of making continuous bias tape is the first one I have truly understood- and I also learned how to apply it the best way. The projects are all fun, and the photography is beautiful. This is a fantastic book that I know I will turn to time and time again.
I received this book in the mail and had so much fun going through it. I promptly got started on some of the projects. I simply could not put this book down! The writer is very down to earth and the projects are simple and fun to put together. I am by no means an expert sewer but when I see the end results of my projects I'm very thrilled with the outcome. The authors ideas for projects are somewhat unique - you will not be disappointed. The projects I have tried and will try again include the zippered pouch, a small tote, charming handbag, pleated beauty handbag, and coasters. The other projects look like great fun as well. You must check this book out!
Saw this book at a local quilt store. However, didn't want to pay the full price for it. I came home and did some shopping and overstock had the best price w/ cheap shipping. This book is great for little quilting or sewing projects! Can't wait to get started. Price was great, received product in timely manner.
