Hi guys, this book is really awesome, I totally agree with the review below. If you like to sew, this a total must have book!

Sew Fabulous Fabric
By Alice Butcher and Ginny Farquhar

Gifted By D&C

Reviewed By Maria Nerius, FaveCrafts.com Resident Craft Expert

This book inspired me to get out my sewing machine, dust it off, oil it up, and sew! Sewing is growing in popularity and this book includes instruction for the novice and experienced sewer with 20 projects to keep you busy. The projects are practical, whimsical, and colorful. You’ll find projects that will help you use up all your scraps of fabric while others are on a larger scale. Projects include home d├ęcor pieces, fashion, card making, stuffed toys, banners, and delightful flowers. I enjoyed making the Floral Delights, a pretty sunflower wall hanging that was embellished with small beads. It was a much-appreciated gift to a quilting friend who loves sunflowers. And I made dozens of the Flower Corsages! It was rather addicting sewing these puffy fun flowers that I used to embellish a bag, a hat, and a scarf. The photography is up close and allows you to see the details of the sewing. The projects are versatile and can be used year round.

Have a super creative week.
