Our customer reviews

I really like this book, it's colourful and fun and gives you all the info you need to get started with freehand however it is not comprehensive and some of the information is a little basic, so I would not recommend it to anyone who isn't confident with their sewing machine. There are some very nice projects and it's great for inspiration! The only thing I didn't like was some of the font used, I found it a little hard to read but that is just a minor niggle!show more
