Reviewed by Rachel A Hyde


Anybody who sews is going to require places to keep materials and items that help with various tasks. Here is a book of projects for making more than just pincushions to keep your sewing area tidy and enable you to transport your kit as well.

There are fifteen projects in here, some of which can be made out of leftovers from other projects. Cotton fabric is used throughout, making this a book that will have a lot of appeal to quilters. Apart from the basic sewing kit, you won’t need much else to make these projects, but there is a page showing some additional supplies such as a bamboo creaser, tacking glue pen, fabric clips etc. These items are all optional. This is a book aimed at those who already sew, so is not for beginners, although there are instructions at the front for doing appliqué and creating and using bias strips. Make cases, rolls and caddies for storing tools, bags for carrying to classes, a sewing machine cover and useful pressing mitt. Each project has staged instructions with both captions and photographs, as well as a list of what materials and tools you need, and a larger photo of the finished item. As this is not for beginners, the staged photographs are not numerous but do illustrate the trickier parts. There are also often more than one view of the item showing it open as well as closed, for example, which is useful.

If you cannot find a good range of cotton fabric and sewing materials locally try for a list of suppliers.
