I found that the author's taste and mine were wildly divergent. Yes, the apron from men's shirts is attractive, and the technique for making flowers from zippers is clearly explained. There is no compelling reason to hand-sew any of the projects though. I agree with commenter koehnerp about the instructions, the photography, and yes, the instructions are clearly written and make sense.

This is a charming book with really "super-cute" and "natty" projects (author's words, not mine). The focus is on items that can be made without electrical machinery using recycled materials. My favorites are the apron made from two yard sale men's shirts, flowers made from zippers, and a pilot hat made from recycled sweaters. The instructions are clearly written, the photography is very attractive and it is well-written. Most of the projects would work well for those who want to teach young people how to sew.
