If you love patchwork and cute gifts (or heck, even making things for yourself) you will love this book! Filled with cute things, and the projects are divided into groups by the approximate time they should take to be finished. Need something for tomorrow? There is a section for crafts that can be made within hours. Do you have a few days or a week? There is a section for crafts that take longer...along with everything inbetween.
This is an awesome sewing book! I made the elephant, but also plan on making the birds and the pin cushion. This is definitely going on the future wish list (I checked it out from the library). Make sure to read the instructions carefully. Sometimes they are a little unclear, but make sense as you go. Many of these projects are small enough that you could make them over and over.
This book has a sweet, simplistic sensibility that I really like. The projects are separated into how long they should take you to complete from 2 hours up to 12+. They range from a pin cushion and needle book to a stuff elephant and table coverings to wall hangings and bed quilts. Many of the latter are very simple and yet have a big impact.
This book has scads of lovely ideas for gifts. I'm not much of a quilter, but I did get a lot of joy out of some of the simple quilt ideas. I was especially thrilled that it has a pattern for a Puzzle Ball in it. I had one as a child and have been wanting to re-create it for my son, but had no idea of where to start.
