Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Haven't tried all of the projects yet, so I can't speak for all of them, but the ones I did try were nice and simple for a beginner like me. However, I found that some were a bit vague in the instruction, and while a veteran sewer could probably figure out what to do, a stupid n00b like me struggled to figure out just how to do some of the projects.
However, I suppose all that can be blamed by my lack of skill.
I love the designs in this book, but I hate the fact that the templates are printed right inside the book. This means you'll have to copy and enlarge them. Enlarging can be a real challenge.
This book is great and gorgeous. It's great to learn how to make your first softies (softies that I know well from the artist's blogs). It's gorgeous with beautiful pictures and a very inviting layout. The artists are so generous to share their patterns! I have tried already a couple and it was easy. And it also help me to open my mind and make my own designs! It's a book worth it to buy, have and enjoy!
