Editorial Reviews

Review

'A practical step-by-step guide to making gorgeous clothes for not much cash... projects include ear muffs, bows, flowers, headbands, skirts and capelets.' SEW TODAY 'not only is this book very useful, it's a joy to read. Farry's instructions are clear and straight-forward, but sound nothing like a manual. And because it's so gosh-darn pretty, it would make a fantastic gift for the girl of slender means in your life.' www.domesticsluttery.com 'The very talented Eithne Farry's new book... is full of clever, not too challenging ideas for making really great clothes & accessories from sometimes unlikely sources' www.libertylondongirl.com 'This inspiring little hardback tome is positively brimming with quirky stitching tips and tricks that show the reader how to create gorgeous clothes on a budget... a must -buy book.' CRAFTS BEAUTIFUL 'Guaranteed to put the fun back into sewing, this is the perfect title for those who love to make fashion items with minimum fuss and maximum impact.' SEWING WORLD

About the Author

Eithne Farry has had a patchwork-quilt career. A former backing-singer (and tambourinist) with indie band Talulah Gosh, she is now a freelance reviewer, writer, literary editor and radio personality, who makes most of her own clothes (or at the very least, customises those she buys ready-made).

I bought this quickly after I read Eithne Farry's "Yeah I Made it Myself". I love her style, humor and ideas. I just wish she would write a few more.
