This book is a pleasing from the cover and on!
The projects are a variety of useful and desirable items.
the photographs are colorful, bright, and inspiring.

I would buy any book with Cassie Barden's name on it! Her other book, The New Handmade, remains one of my favorite books.

The projects in this book are in four sections; Bags and Totes, which has four projects. The bag projects are a tote bag, a wristlet, a shoulder bag, and a messenger bag. The In The Kitchen section has coasters, a tea service set, a very cute apron, and a pot holder. On The Go includes a mustachioed man iPad case, a cute little box bag, an e-reader cover, a ladybug coin purse, and a wallet designed for the traveller. Gift Worthy Goods has a great knitting needle case, a darling woodland sewing set, a beautiful baby quilt, a jackalope stuffed toy, and a science-y lap quilt.

Also important and included are good directions, patterns, and diagrams....yup, this book is a good buy!

Never have I encountered a project book with so many appealing designs. I started right off covering buttons for the first one, the bag shown on the cover. I discovered there is nothing more satisfying than the push and whoosh as I click the backing into the button. Wow.

I really do intend to work through the whole book, except for one item, an iPad cover with a gigantic mustache on it. I'm already trimming off the printed selvedges of fabric for a cute wrist bag project that incorporates the thin strips, and I've pulled together the materials for the stuffed jackalope, sweetly named Finn, who is also pictured on the cover.

Some of the projects, like a messenger bag, are pretty challenging. Others, including a ladybug coin purse and a hedgehog pincushion, will go together quickly. Bags, pouches, kitchen items like tea towels and a jaunty apron, coasters, cases, and quilts--all of the ideas are fresh, original, and irresistible.

Cute projects, ultra-mega-clear directions/technical illustrations and good project photos - it's everything I want in a sewing projects book.

I have made the tote bag project (pictured on the cover). It worked out so beautifully someone asked to buy it from me. "Make your own," I said, then recommended this book.

I enjoyed receiving this book and deciding which project to do first. Since I was looking for a quick bazaar item to make, I chose the little Ladybug Coin Purse. The directions were very easy to understand, and before you know it, I had the purse in hand. It's very cute and I will certainly make more! Thanks!

This is a beautiful book! A great resource for all your handmade sewing projects - it's clear, concise and very detailed. The book is really well laid out and each outline is easy to follow. I would highly recommend this book.

This book was sadly disapointing. The front cover and reviews showed so much promised, but sadly this book didn't really inspire me. There are a few bags and an apron and nothing else I would really use unless I were sewing for a child. The home decor items mentioned are pot holders and napkins. Since I haven't made anything I can't comment on the clarity of the directions. I would suggest not getting this book unless you have had a chance to look through the entire book first.
This is a delightful book full of projects that will appeal to crafters of all levels of experience. I love the tote shown on the cover decorated with fabric-covered buttons and have already started sorting through my stash for buttons to use when I make a revised version of it for myself. I'm envisioning something done in shades of blue using decorative plastic buttons. One thing I like about this book is that the projects inspire me to come up with some of my own ideas using what I have on hand.

Projects include a cover for an e-reader, quilted coasters, stuffed toys, handbags and totes, a messenger bag that includes a section for a laptop, a knitting needle tote, an adorable ladybug coin purse, potholders and other kitchen items, and quilts, to name a few. Instructions are given for assembling and sewing the projects, there are plenty of photos and diagrams, and some full size patterns are included. Other projects give instructions for measuring and cutting fabric instead of patterns. Although I haven't made anything from the book yet, I did read through the instructions for each project and found them to be clear and easy to follow.

At this writing it is only February, but many of these projects would make wonderful Christmas gifts or holiday bazaar items so this book would be a good one to have now to get an early start.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
