Praise for this book

The book's design has some lovely touches that make it fun to look at. The pages that divide the chapters are collages of pretty fabric scraps. Fabric scraps are used as decorative elements on the materials lists for each project. The sidebars are outlined in circles that look like wrapped thread. I love these little decorative elements. --While She Naps
