The overall organization of the book is small to medium to "gigantic" projects, and Grace leads this all with a beefy introductory section that is 30 pages long. This is a beginner-friendly book in every way. Sprinkled like bright confetti throughout the book are tips and Q&A surveys from 17 different contributors (a couple of whom are guys - yay!). There are several very nicely done hand-drawn illustrations, although actual real-life photographs are also included. I've not yet made any of the projects, but the level of instructive text is quite amazing and lively.

Just now I spotted a tiny elf, some hippos, and bunches of alarmingly garish prints that I could never before picture myself buying, yet I just have to start collecting them all NOW. Even when I look at the predominantly grey 9-patch project on this chilly November day, I start to warm up. It's just not possible to have a down day flipping through this spirited and playful book by Chrissie Grace and her lucky community of contributors.
