The introduction includes tips for setting up your studio with a short list of useful tools as well as a section on time management. The main part of the book is divided into four chapters that focus on seasonal projects with each season having two projects. At the beginning of each chapter, there are pages for noting sewing goals and planning for gift giving that season. The author then presents specific sewing advice on techniques that are utilized in the projects following that section. For example, she explains how to sew an inset zipper which is then utilized in the wristlet project. After each project, there is a page for noting how the project went and what new skill was learned while making that project. At the end of each chapter there are additional pages for making notes. This is a great way to keep track of learning new techniques, especially for those new to sewing.
In total there are eight quick projects that will help you expand your toolbox of skills including a fun apron, a patchwork skirt, insulated lunch bag, and fleece scarf. Each project includes lists detailing the fabrics and notions needed and the assembly process is detailed step-by-step and accompanied with colorful hand-drawn illustrations and photographs.
If you enjoyed Kay's other books, you will love this one as well. If you are new to Kay's patterns and style, this book serves as a great introduction to her teaching style and aesthetic. The projects are all well-explained and most are easy enough for beginning sewists as well as those that are more advanced.
