Veteran author Knight (Sew Kawaii! 22 Simple Sewing Projects for Cool Kids of All Ages) takes beginner sewists under her wing with this informative collection of projects aimed at teens and young adults. The first third of the book focuses on the basics, with topics ranging from choosing the right machine to color theory to types of fabric and their uses, and has enough straightforward content to help new sewists confidently choose notions and material for their first projects. The rest of the book consists of beginner-friendly ideas with a youthful slant, including simple fabric flowers, embellished hand towels, a mobile phone case, and a small zippered pouch. Each project has step-by-step directions with photographs of each stage, as well as tips for working with any new notions, such as interfacing or zippers. VERDICT Though this guide is not as thorough as Deborah Moebes's excellent Stitch by Stitch: Learning To Sew, One Project at a Time, young novices will find these projects very appealing.
