Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Growing families are the focus of craft blogger Horner's (Seams to Me) second collection of sewing patterns. Inspired by her family, Horner's designs include maternity clothing, baby clothing and toys, and fun extras for the new baby's older siblings. The projects include a convertible top for breastfeeding, diaper bags for mom and dad, and the standard baby quilts and soft toys that turn up in many sewing-for-baby books. It's really the aesthetic that will attract readers—Horner's samples have an appealing modern-vintage feel.
