A fabulous new series using leftover fat quarters to create 16 gorgeous items. Who knew just two fat quarters can be used in so many ways? If like me you have more than few fat quarters then this book will be one for you. The projects are cute, colourful and useful and as the title suggests, ideal for gifts. From toys to children’s clothes there is something for everyone. This book is perfect for beginner sewists, as the projects are quite simple, that said, there are many useful techniques that will advance your sewing skills. There are full sized pattern sheets included, and with easy instructions, accompanied by visual step by step hints and tips, so you really cannot go wrong. Highly recommended by me! 5*/5
