I will have to warn the daughter and son-in-law that their future babies will have tons of insanely cute hats to wear! :-)
From the sweet, simple primer on techniques (working with wool fabrics, hand-stitching, machine sewing, and quilting) to each individual project’s detailed instructions (with tips on cutting, pressing, top-stitching, hand-tying, and more) Susan’s passion for sewing shines through. Each project is rated from 1 sheep to 3 sheep, according to difficulty, and there are helpful box-feature guides throughout—helpful advice for everything from substituting fabrics to matching plaids to fabric care. On every page, readers will discover just how gratifying sewing can be.
