I love this book! It has alot of different project ideas, many of them useful or giftable. It has some projects simple enough that a child could do them, but others interesting and challenging enough for an adult. It teaches you several useful stitches, then gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with them. The vibrant, colorful photos give you many great ideas. I have very little sewing experience, yet I have made several projects from this book and they actually turned out looking the way I wanted them to! I highly recommend this book.
