  1. I checked that one out from the library recently. It’s been a very interesting read, lots of good details, and I love all of the photos. Looking forward to seeing what you make!

  2. I also wonder about the book. How useful is it? Do you like it? Is it worth the money?
    I love all your creations and you certainly do SEW WELL. I am so impressed!

    1. I actually won this book from a giveaway over at SewCranky a couple months ago, so it was definitely worth it for free! I do actually like the book a lot. It’s got a lot of information, most of which is really useful but some of which seems a bit esoteric. I’d recommend checking it out from the library at least so that you can gauge how much use you’d get out of it.
