I am very delighted with this "Learn Easy Sewing Skills" book of 11 wonderful projects I feel confident I can do. As a retired 9 to 5 office worker, I never made the time to learn to sew. Next week I am having 2 nieces over to do something with me from this book. I am especially pleased with the quick delivery of my shipment.

With 11 easy to sew items that make great gifts or home decor for your own home, this book will walk you through making each item. It begins with an 11 page basics of sewing that covers things like how to stitch, how to mark and basic sewing supplies and equipment. Then the written patterns begin which include such things as tote bags, potholders and aprons. They have colored photos of the finished item, along with finished size and a materials list. Colored boxes are found throughout the book with extra tips. There are enough graphics included to be sure you are going in the right direction. Each project is easy enough for a beginner but even a seasoned stitcher will find items that will be interesting enough to hold their attention. Besides, don't we all need a few easy projects, now and again especially when we are looking for those Secret Santa gifts?
