I adore this book. It's been around for a while book I just wanted to tell anyone who hasn't seen it about it. If you love sewing, you'll love it because of how it researches the history of sewing. The pictures are great and the projects are fun ad inspiring. I was going to talk about it in more detail but I found this video by the author, so who better to tell you than her?!
She actually doesn't mention what I think is the best project in the book, the teapot tablecloth.
