Sew Quick-Sew Cute *Book Review*

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter...

In preparing for Easter this year, I was inspired by this book...

Fiona Goble

published by
Adams Media a division of F+W Media Inc.

The 'Skinny-ear Rabbit' on the front cover caught
my attention immediately!!  Such a cute stuffie
for my daughter's Easter Basket.

and browsing through the book I was amazed..

 So many quick and cute ideas to create
for babies, teens, decor, and toys.

Each item starts with a large photo, clear description, 
and a little cuckoo clock with amount of time
to make it!  Then a material list and numbered
written instructions and photos to walk 
you through the making process.

I made those 'Skinny-ear Rabbits' and a sarong
for my daughter's basket this year!!
Some of the templates in the book are
full size, some need to be enlarged.  The
rabbits template need to be enlarged but 
I really didn't want a large stuffie so
I made them using the size right out
of the book....I think they are adorable this size!!

And the sarong...yeah she had to keep the
bunny ears on!!

She loves wraps, and stuffies, and bags!!
So next on the list of things to make
from this book will be the 14 x 15" bag
from this book.

There is a nice variety of items to make from this book.
Fiona Goble has made gift giving a little simpler
with her book Sew Quick - Sew Cute
With 30 cute patterns to choose from, ranging from 1-12 hours,
and items for babies to adults to make for,
It might take you longer to decide which one
to make first than to actually make it!!

Until next time
Happy Spring....Happy Stitching
