Sew Quick, Sew Cute: 30 Simple Speedy Projects by Fiona Goble
30 projects to make - whether you've got half an hour or a whole weekend.
When Fiona Goble started out teaching sewing, she was surprised by how many novice sewers had been thinking about learning for years. What put them off? The idea that sewing anything worthwhile would take ages. Sew Quick, Sew Cute does away with the idea that sewing can't offer speedy, cute results. Time frames vary from under an hour to a whole weekend, but there are plenty of ideas in the 30 on offer that will fit a spare afternoon, and how-tos are given in easily absorbed illustrated steps. Projects are divided into home, personal, and kids stuff, and there's plenty of scope for you to showcase a special fabric even when you don't have much of it. From toys to totes, and pillows to pincushions, you'll be amazed at what you can make (and how good it will look), however time-poor you are.
