I really want to like this book, but I'm still on the fence. I'm not new to sewing (I've been sewing for 20+ years and have a degree in fashion design), but I pre-ordered the book hoping to find some *new* ideas for quick, fun, projects.

I don't need instructions to cover a cork board or line a bookcase with fabric. Most of the other projects are the same old thing: aprons, laptop and CD sleeves, laundry bags, a yoga mat bag, a basic bias skirt, placemats, handbags, a sewing machine cover, pet beds and toys, lunch and trash bags. Over 30 (out of 101) of the projects are for children's items (clothing, toys, etc.). There are some fresh ideas though, I love the origami box and a couple of the women's summer tops are cute.

Overall, if you are new to sewing, you'll probably love this book and it would be a great place to start. It has a great section on basic sewing techniques and the book itself is beautifuly photographed and laid out. I like the spiral bindng and I appreciate that it came with pattern pieces for all but the most basic projects.

If you are not new to sewing, don't expect to find many new ideas here. However, it is a great collection of classic projects all in one place and nicely photographed.

I am an experienced quilter but a beginner for all other types of sewing, so for me the projects in this book are new and fun. I have tried four of them so far: the kid's apron, the wine glass coasters, the bean bag booster seats, and the catch-all/charging station. I have two main problems with the book so far:

1) Many of the projects don't require a full yard of fabric, but except for the wine bag/coasters project, I haven't seen this fact addressed. It would be nice to have the minimum fabric requirement for each project, so that if I'm intentionally purchasing fabric I don't have to buy a full yard unless it's really needed. For instance, I made the charging station with 1/2 yard of fabric.

2) My bigger issue is that there is not enough detail in the written instructions and not enough pictures for 3 of the 4 projects I tried. The wine coasters were easy, but the other three all could have benefited from more information. For instance, the bean bag booster seats have you create a 3-sided box and then sew on a square of fabric for the bottom. The instructions just say to sew them with right sides together, but it is more complicated than that and I had to drag my sewing machine over to my mom's house to get her help figuring it out. Similarly, the apron says to fold over a 3/4" seam along a curved piece of the fabric, which is nearly impossible to do without a million pins and even then it created unwelcome pleats in the fabric. I realize I might be missing a simple technique to get it right, but without extra pictures I don't know how to do it and I ended up improvising a completely different way to attach the neck loop and ties for the apron. Finally, the charging station instructions are confusing for sewing the corners that create the boxy shape for this project.

I was shocked when I received this book and saw all the great ideas and patterns in it. In many books, there are a few usable ideas and mostly, I have been satisfied with that. But this book has so many great projects, I don't know which to start with. For the price, you can't go wrong. You get your money's worth and so much more.

I am very new to sewing and found a lot of good info on basic techniques in this book. The projects are really cute and fashionable, and seem to be fairly easy to whip up for the most part. The book itself is spiral bound to lay flat and sturdily constructed. I would definetly recommend it to other.

This book is terribly disappointing. So far I have tried 3 projects and each of them have had at least one problem.

Ballet-neck dress: The hole for the neck casing ends up being too low and I had to make a new hole at the top.
Folklore Bag: The top band is wider than the bag base, so they do not fit together properly. The band has to be made smaller. The bag turns out smaller than the picture makes it look.
Flouncy Bag: The lining does not fit the base. It should have been made wider than the base in order to fit after the side seams were done. Also it is MUCH smaller than the picture makes it look.

There are 2 other BIG problems with this book.
First, the directions are not very good. There is a lot of guess work involved because things are not stated clearly.
Second, the pictures are VERY misleading. Both bags look very large in the pictures, but are in fact quite small. They look like large totes. The folklore bag must have been photographed on a child size chair, or they made it bigger for the pictures. I am certain the flouncy bag was made larger for the pictures, because the proportions are entirely different.

I wonder if any of these patterns were even tested. So far I have had nothing but problems and disappointment with this book. I have done quite a bit of sewing, so I have been able to make adjustments to the projects I have done, but have still been mostly disappointed by the finished products (the dress did end up being cute). I doubt that a beginner would have much luck at all.
