Despite the attractive presentation, many of the crafts are dull or downright awkward-looking. However, the scarf and the afghan made from felted sweaters are interesting.

I have mixed feelings about this. Yes many of the crafts are lovely and cute but she spends so much time talking about how wonderous it is to make your own crafts rather than instructing one how to make them. Further, I dislike her section on fabric, she totally disregards synthetic fabrics and actually encourages people to go shopping for remnants. Hello? weren't you just saying we should use what we have? Why not teach people how to make their own prints from old sheets or how to mix solids wth prints in crafts.

That being said, projects are nice and the instructions are good.

Fun to read. It's an Australian book, so there are some different names--as in "pegs" for clothespins. Several of the projects are actually useful, including a shopping bag pattern.

Modern spin really on simple "old fashioned" sewing projects such as bags, baby bibs and Christmas stockings. This Australian book is arranged by season but the projects beautifully photographed with step by step instructions could be completed at any time. Many projects suitable for age 12 and up.
