Inspiring for Practiced Sewists too! I do like this book for several reasons. First of all, I bought it because it contains projects for things I want to make!

What it does have are cute and useful projects I actually liked (as opposed to other “beginner books” filled with ugly and/or dated things I would never want to purchase let alone make) Each chapter is…
