This book is everything that I want a simple, beginner craft book to be!

Her instructions tell you precisely what type of fabric should be used and why. In fact, sometimes the instructions border on the "isn't that obvious?" variety. In my experience, it is the little (obvious to some) details that go overlooked and are missing from pattern books.

I like that each pattern easily complements the next and that this collection of patterns truly can be made for one household. I also like that they range from the simple afternoon project (e.g. placemats & napkins) to the more complex (e.g. quilt). ( )

Had this book only a couple of weeks and have already made one of the projects. The patterns are simple and directions easy to understand, but that is part of the charm. The completed item is unique and better than store bought. And using the completed project gives such a sense of accomplishment. I can't wait to find the time to put together something else. ( )

Charming projects, but I didn't feel a need to make any of them. Also, the patterns aren't particularly complex, so really you're just paying to see the style, use of colour, etc. I've bought one of her dress patterns on the back of reading this. ( )

I LOVE this book. Gorgeous pictures, simple instructions. I haven't had the opportunity to make anything from the book but I will. ( )
