So here we have it folk’s the last installment to the David & Charles sew series
Patchwork is my new found friend, we are new friends but friends all the same! My first bad with patchwork is I don’t wash the fabric….. If I’m honest I don’t wash ANY fabrics! But for quilting I think it’s more a preference to the sewer?!?There are fab tips on ironing, pressing seams and cutting triangles too. The 1st of 3 projects actually made my stomach flip! No really BUT I have to say purple does that too me! This book shows you what is do-able, even to the newbie, and it there really is wow factor. The next project is a great stash buster, that the kid’s will love… See the pigs above I mean cute or what! Once again templates are provided, so your good to go! The last project may seem scary, a backpack, but I reckon the earlier you are introduced to the zipper the better, saves you getting the fear! I am only just getting over!
So in conclusion for me the
How To Sew Series By David and Charles.
The books as a series, for me have been a good read, I think anybody looking to get in to sewing would thoroughly enjoy these books, and as a person who sews already I got a couple of tips too. Another bonus for me is that I am a hoarder of books. I now think that E-books have a place in my life, I mean I don’t need to have every book on my shelve now do I! Also there is the pollution/waste issue too….. I mean all the P&P and the delivering. I am in no way saying I will never buy a book again, just that my eyes have been opened and there is space for a E-book or 2!!
