Debbie Shore has a passion for sewing, and her fresh, contemporary designs coupled with simple, easy-to-follow instructions make this book a recipe for success. All of the projects use just half a yard (about half a metre) of fabric, making them ideal for using up scraps and oddments left over from other projects or sold off cheaply by your favourite fabric store. All you need is a sewing machine and a basic sewing kit, and in no time at all you'll be making one of the gorgeous projects in the book. There are twenty-six to choose from, including beautiful bags, aprons, a craft caddy for storing your making kit, padded coat hangers, a chicken doorstop, a handy wash bag, a notice board and numerous other gifts and accessories for you, your family and your home. The basic techniques you need to know are explained clearly at the beginning of the book, and every step-by-step project is accompanied by a fabulous photograph of the finished piece, which will not fail to delight and inspire you

I've made two projects out of here so far - the tote bag, and sunglass case; instructions were clear, well written, and easy for me, a beginner sewer, to follow (I did have to look up how to do a ladder stitch on youtube - the picture in the book didn't offer quite enough guidance for me, but it at least gave me the proper term and idea to search for and figure out what to do). My projects came out very nice looking, the bias finishing makes them look almost professional; the tote seems sturdy enough to carry my library books, with a convenient front pocket to store my library card so I don't have to hunt through my purse for it, which is what I wanted it for. There are a few more projects I'd like to try that look pretty and practical and will help grow my sewing skills, and would make gifts that I wouldn't be embarrassed to give away. I would definitely recommend this book.
