There is a Pretty Petite Dress to make out of your favorite fabrics that will add a darling decorative element to any room in your house! The sweetest cylindrical shaped panda pillow would be so fun to place on a couch or chair and delight your guests! I was excited to see the Log Cabin design with four pockets surrounding a bucket to fill with toys and other items to keep the kids occupied when out. One helpful extra is the strap attached to the bucket that hangs over the seat in the car -- great for long car trips!
The cute two-sided Patchy Wrap Skirt with the scalloped bottom edge would match with many different types and colors of shirts. I love reusable items, so I thought the easy patchwork Nesting Bowls would be nice to fill with sweet treats for a friend or neighbor, who could then refill it with trinkets or treasures after the treats are all gone.
Making tiny flags for cupcakes in fitting shapes for holidays and other celebrations is a simple way to use up even your tiniest scraps. So, if you are looking for ideas to use up your fabric remnants, Stash Happy Patchwork is a great place to start!
The photography is beautifully done and the book itself is laid out well. The instructions are easy to understand and broken down into step-by-step instruction (as opposed to trying to cram in three parts of instruction into one). The "basics" chapter is short and sweet, giving you just the bit of information you need without lengthy explanations, making it the perfect book for someone that has at least a very basic knowledge of sewing. There are plenty of photos to help illustrate the steps.
Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves patchwork and sewing.
This one did!! I love this book and most of the project which is rare.
Some of the project that stand out are: The most adorable pattern for a petite dress,
really like the honeycomb sheet set which is a clever way to revive a plain sheet set.
It would also add some life a set of towels (just a thought)!
A bento box pattern is a very practical way packing a dry lunch for a picnic.
The cupcake flags a convenient way to decorate!
A lovely vest for boys.
This is a great book at a great price for all the projects.
Many of the projects look pretty easy and quick, good for using some of the scraps in the stash. I like that there is a mix of simple and more difficult projects. Some of the more demanding ones, like the houses lap quilt, Dresden plate rug and honeycomb sheet set, can be good practice for more elaborate piecing and quilting.
The step-by-step instructions are not hard to follow and the ideas for variations on the projects are a nice plus.
Overall, a good book for using up some remnants, although I wouldn't say this is a have-to-have sewing book.

Some of the projects look a little complicated, but we'll see. There are a couple I might try. Kinda cute. Really not the kind of book I was hoping for though.Published 3 months ago by 224perweek
