In addition, Amy walks readers through easy, inspiring patterns designed for the fashion-savvy crafter. Playful, modern projects, which include pillows, aprons, and purses, help novices master sewing skills while providing immediate sewing gratification-and confidence.

Our customer reviews

I had heard wonderful things about it and it is a lovely book with great projects but unfortunately they are all things that I already have done in the past and have books and patterns for already. I found this book a bit simple for my needs. The photo's are stunning and the fabrics are beautiful so it was nice to look more
