Great beginners’ book It’s been only a few months since I started sewing and in this little time I’ve “hoarded” a silly amount of sewing books that are meant for more experienced sewers. I got my copy of “sewing in a straight line” because the projects seemed perfect for my current sewing skills. I have to say I love it! The projects are super cute and it’s nice to see modern home sewing projects for once. I love the fact that it features a quilting project which I’ve also been curious to learn about. I would strongly recommend it to beginner sewers. This would make a terrific gift paired with a sewing machine.

Incredibly Inspiring I haven’t had the chance to make anything from this book because I’m working on The Quilt That Will Never End. However, I was thrilled to crack the cover and see really current projects that would be great finished as directed – or taken whatever direction you wanted to go.I like that the projects are simple, but look cool and cover a smattering of project types from clothes and accessories to home to gifts. And everything relies on your own measurements – so not only could you easily adjust things to be however big or small you wanted, the clothes can be made for anyone, which is refreshing. This weekend, I’m going to put aside the aforementioned quilt to make the purse – with a few modifications to suit my style. That’s one of the things I like the most – I feel like this book is a great jumping off point for many ideas and every project leaves a lot of room for you to customize however you like.Another plus – the directions seem very clearly written and…

Best project book! I just got a sewing machine last month. I am very excited about it and have ordered a lot…A LOT of books for project inspiration. This one is one of the best. I have already made the “one hour skirt” twice! Im nervous to start with patterns and this book is great because you cut your own! She gives you the dimensions to cut and you piece them together, no tissue paper! There is variety too with lots of home dec projects and baby projects. This book makes sewing seem a little easier!
