If you have a sewing machine, you can do it. Just relax and have fun making stuff! Popular author, Pamela Mostek and her daughter Rachel Mostek show how to make sewing faster and more rewarding, with emphasis on making it easy to complete the projects and being proud of the results, instead of sweating over technique and stitching details. The mother-daughter duo focus on using great fabrics with clean, simple designs that everyone can stitch. Their fun-to-follow instructions for the 20 projects include more than 35 photos and 100 illustrations, with practical tips for assembly shortcuts and workable design options. Projects include the colorful Porch Swing Quilt and Pillows with easy raw-edged details; Short & Sweet Apron; a quick table topper and placemats; The Big, Big Bag; an exercise mat; fun and adaptable Altered Jean Jackets; and sew-easy patchwork quilts with ric rac and button accents.
