    There are times that I want a book filled with the work of one designer, and there are times I am interested in looking at a variety of different ways to approach the same question. This book has 25 different projects from various designers all answering the question, "What should I make for my friend?" I love that for a 'what to make for a gift' book. As always, the photographs are great, the patterns clear and the quality of the book 100% Martingale/Patchwork Place. This is a book that you'll want on your shelf if you prefer handmade to purchased for your gifts.

    One book, many designers. The book contains so many different projects that it is hard to tell all of them without writing the “great novel”. A few of them are pillows, bags, scarves, wristlets, cup cozies and many, many more.

    Fabrics include wool, cotton and repurposed denim. I can’t wait to try the Tiny Table Topper as I can use my scraps and pick a main color to create it. Plus it is a “twist” on normally pieced blocks. There are also designs for embroidery work and applique.

    The instructions are well written and easy to follow with graphics for those of us that are more visually inclined. Each has a paragraph about it to begin the pattern. Tips are given throughout the book and set off in a dashed box.

    There are 25 projects and many are small enough to make in a day or two. If you need a gift and want to give a hand-made one, then this is the book for you.

    This book is a joy to look at with the colorful photos of handbags and totes, pillows, quilts, table runners, bracelets, a curling iron case, and upcycled projects including a cup cozy and wristlet purse, plus many more...25 fun projects in all by top designers.

    Many of the projects include full size patterns to trace or photocopy, and the rest are given as measurements for cutting. There are plenty of photos and diagrams that accompany clear instructions that even a novice seamstress will be able to follow. Some of the items require machine sewing and others are hand-sewn. The first project that caught my eye was the felt journal cover that is sized to cover a composition notebook, but I will revise it to fit sketch pads as Christmas gifts for the little girls in our family who love to draw and color.

    I'm a fan of craft books by Martingale & Company and this one met all my expectations with the color photos, glossy pages, and inspiring crafts.

    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.
