Do you fancy a book to start your sewing off? This might be the one.
The introduction talks you through the essentials you need for the projects in this book – sewing machine through to marking and measuring tools. There are some projects which include fabric paints, again important tools to help talked about.
Tips for fabric painting -stamps and stencils, attaching bias binding, modifying simple patterns, button holes, curves and embroidery notes are also useful references in the beginning of this book.
There are twenty five projects to work on. There are quite a few bags of different shapes and sizes, cushion covers and fabric wall hangings, some little girls skirts and dresses, note book covers, embroidery embellishments, badges, patches, a soft toy and other various holders for around the house.
Alexandra Smith tells her story of what inspires her along the way, choosing a variety of styles to suit different tastes.
It might be the book for some lovely home made presents?
