Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Crazy patchwork is all about adornment. Sewing irregularly shaped fabric swathes to a foundation fabric and embellishing them is a great way to use small fabric remnants left over from other projects. It may also serve as an excuse for purchasing a small amount of a luxury fabric too expensive for use in larger endeavors. All the patterns Barnden (Embroidery Basics: All You Need To Know To Start Stitching) offers are aimed at the self-taught, crazy patchwork beginner andmay be completed either by hand or bysewing machine. Following an introduction to materials and techniques, Barnden takes the reader step by step through a series of projects of increasing difficulty, from a simple potholder to a more complex teddy bear. Chapters on the stitches and fabrics used round out the book. One of the best introductions to crazy patchwork for the absolute beginner this reviewer has seen; highly recommended for public libraries.


—Jan Zlendich
School Library Journal

Adult/High School - This craft book is a model of helpful organization-clear directions supplemented by large and clarifying photographs, useful explanations of both techniques and supplies, and attractive projects. Providing instruction on how to sew patchwork, quilt, and embroider using hand techniques and sewing machines, the chapters are brief and focused on specific aspects of the work: preparing fabric, using such tools as scissors and needles, selecting and using batting, creating or copying paper patterns and templates, and making additional designs with embroidered stitches, ribbons and lace, and beadwork. A true beginner could move beyond inspiration to attempting a "real" project-a potholder is the smallest one detailed-while those teens who have confidence in their sewing will be inspired to follow the directions for making handbags, photo-album covers, and maybe even a full-size quilt. Crafty teens, and those wondering if they might be able to turn their hands to creating something substantial, will be well served by this volume.-Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley Public Library, CA

    Highly Recomend.

    I got this book at the public library. I checked it out twice and decided it was a valuable resource for my own library. Several good projects and great instructions for making several different types of crazy patches.
