Library Journal 2015
’Tis the season for gift sewing, and Shore’s latest is a collection of easy-to-sew projects using a half yard (or less) of fabric. Most of the projects are frilly and feminine or whimsical and child-friendly, with ribbon, lace, and button trims, and quilting cotton featuring prominently. They’re the type of projects that don’t require body measurements, making it easy to whip up a few to give as last-minute or hostess gifts. The majority are home-decor related, including an oilcloth-covered garden kneeler, a door stop shaped like a handbag, a throw pillow featuring a slashed-fabric design, and a cupcake-shaped pot holder. The directions are given in short steps with photos of key points. Photos of the finished projects abound as well. Patterns are not included, which isn’t problematic because most of the projects highlight shapes that are simple to cut. Directions for creating custom templates are included as needed. VERDICT Gift sewing is popular, and there’s a wide range of projects here. Sewists looking for cute, feminine gift designs will enjoy
