Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Packed with everything the modern baby (and mom) needs, this book is separated into occasions: party time, home time, go time, dress-up time, and of course, play time. The designs are creative and imaginative, yet practical. With such a variety of projects, and the option of colorful fabrics, your baby and you will be very stylish.
--Threads Magazine; July 11, 2012

If there's a baby on the horizon in your family, this book by designers Marcea Owen and Janice Liljenquist will ensure that they are welcomed into the world surrounded by handcrafted goodness. Instructions are provided for 20 different projects, including quilts, cushions, bags for carrying baby's stuff around and some softies to cuddle. Some are quick and easy - perfect for novices who have been inspired by the baby's birth to start crafting. Others will require a greater investment of time, but are still very achievable for a determined beginner. The instructions are detailed, and are illustrated with diagrams and photographs. The templates are provided full size on a tear-out pattern sheet inside the back cover.

What a great book especially a great gift to any mommy or to be who loves to sew. This book covers everything you can imagine that you would need for the baby. The quilts, hat, bib, toys are just too adorable. I wish for the ebook they had patterns in small scale that could have been enlarged as some of them need pattern pieces to finish the projects. Having said that I am still very mush satisfied with the projects I can work on...lovely design and colors used in each projects.

This book makes me smile with all the adorable projects for babies...cute hats, nursery decor, sweet little shoes, bibs, a fabric storage box, and so much more. The two things that make this book great besides the projects themselves are the many color photographs and two large pull-out pages of full-size patterns so the user doesn't have to guess at dimensions or enlarge a pattern. I also like the modern tone of the fabrics used that inspire getting away from the typical pastels and ginghams and instead trying brighter colors, bold polka-dots, etc. Besides the expected projects such as bibs, quilts, booties, burp cloths, and hats, there are also fun items such as baby washcloth "candies" and "lollipops" for a different shower gift presentation, a changing pad, nursing cover, baby car seat canopy, diaper bag, soft toys, elastic flower headbands, and a unique diaper clutch bag for those times when a full diaper bag isn't needed. The book does assume that the user has some sewing experience but there are projects that even beginners will be able to make, with clear instructions and diagrams. This is a wonderful resource for unique and personalized gifts any new mom would love. 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.
