    I was underwhelmed by this book. It wasn't just the overbearing Pink-ness of everything in it, it's that the crafts are very basic, a number of sewn items had instructions for how to create your own pattern (using plates to trace curves for the bags on the cover, for example) and it was one of those craft/sewing books geared to decorating with a theme made 'feminine' by being diabetic coma-inducingly sweet.Many of the items are shown over and over again, and the instruction is bare-bones minimal. Since some of the items are so basic I'd expect better instruction-writing as that would make this book appropriate for beginning sewists, which it is not for that very reason.Overall this is a small book filled with the same several items - almost like a couple of magazine articles given lots more photos & bound up as a book.

    This book oooooozes pinkness!! It is one of the reasons I first loved it but I have to admit after 70 pink pages I do feel a bit overcome with cuteness! But still each page and room displayed is adorable and the book itself contains so so many projects I want to make and so much inspiration for decorating my craft area. the first thing I made were the roses and they have turned out wonderfully. However I don't think the book is aimed at a newbie sewer, it certainly does not spoon feed the instructions and leaves a lot of room open to interpretation which an experienced sewer would have no problem with. However at the same time the projects are explained enough to work your way through with mayeb a bit of help from the internet. I love the fabrics used and the large variety of projects in the book and feel I will keep returning to the book for many years.

    Boy do I have a list of ideas for Christmas gifts from this one! Going to be so much fun. Really, cute stuff in here. I'm only disappointed that there aren't more patterns - clearly there are other things photographed that are homemade but the author chose not to give instructions for them. But they don't look too tough to figure out.

    Gorgeous and insanely cute bits and bobs to make for the home or as gifts. I've made loads of things from this book as *shhhhhh* last minute gifts and they've always gone down very well with the recipient. The style is bright, cheery and quirky. My favourites things to make include the scented stuffed strawberries and the carousel horse.

    This book was a great find. The instructions are friendly and clear. The dolls are similar so the new seamstress will easily be able to make all of the items in this book. The feeling of happiness and light, love and friendship are spoken clearly in each project. A great "girlfriend get-together" book!

    The author presents "over 35 irresistible projects to fall in love with". Projects are very soft and modern, presenting wit lots of pink. I copied a couple of patterns from the library copy, a make-up bag and a large block quilt. Recommended.

    Cute bags! Use near the front door once you've filled will all the random clutter, then make yourself another one to fill. LOLI like the slippers, strawberries, and the "my house tapestry". Everything in the hobby room is perfect...sigh. Someday. :D

    Wish I was a sew-er when I look at this book! But the pictures are so pretty and inspiring anyway! If you can sew and like cute, homemade projects, you'll love it!!
