    Gorgeous Projects, Gorgeous Book!

    This book is visually beautiful. The photographs are gorgeous and the technical illustrations make the projects easy to understand. The back of the book contains a pocket that has folded pattern sheets for many of the larger projects. With over thirty projects, the book is a real bargain. To buy similar patterns singularly, you would spend a lot more money. I like how the book is divided into sections: Handmade Handbags, Sewing for Little Ones, Home Style and Personal Style. There is something for everyone. The instructions and patterns are explained well and easy to understand. A novice seamstress should have no trouble succeeding with this book. This is a great book that will inspire your creativity to sew. I was so inspired by this book that I have purchased a number of the author's fabrics and they are beautiful as well. I am very happy with my purchase and I will be using Sew What You Love a lot.
