Say a library patron needs a Halloween costume but is on a budget and doesn't have time for a labor-intensive sewing session. Astroth's (Fast, Fun & Easy Scrapbook Quilts) creative ideas for mix-and-match costumes-designed for anyone with basic sewing-machine skills and a supply of fusible interfacing-may be just the ticket. Her book of patterns and instructions for child, adult, and even pet costumes includes ideas for simple last-minute costumes (with accessories like wands, hats, or eyeglasses) as well as complete patterns for pirate, nurse, hula girl, cupid, knight, and elephant costumes. Full-size pattern pieces-always a good feature in a quick-to-sew book-add to the overall ease of use. Purchase for public libraries where demand warrants.
