There's a great variety of projects included in this book including decor, women's clothes, children's clothes, pet projects, household accessories and even a rug! The amount of fabric each project uses varies greatly which is fantastic. If you have only scraps, you can make some adorable cupcake flags. If you have a moderate stash, you can try a hobo bag or cozy cones. If you have tons of fabric, try making the patchy wrap skirt.
Each project has a gorgeous, full cover photograph of the finished item. There is a section that details the items you need - one from your stash of material and one from the craft store. Also included is a detailed, step by step instruction area that references step by step photographs. The back of the book includes the necessary templates you need to create your patterns. Some of the patterns need to be enlarged which I did easily on my printer.
I found this book very inspiring and easy to follow. The projects include ideas for both adults and children as well as items that are suitable for gifts and decorating. There's a wide range of projects for every skill level. My sewing skills are fairly basic and I found several projects that I felt comfortable doing. The projects are easy enough to modify slightly if you have different embellishments or accent pieces. The flexibility allowed me to use some items from my craft stash and just purchase the items I didn't have on hand. This is a wonderful way to use up those smaller pieces of fabric you have in your stash.
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.
