Lovely projects to complete easily and quickly Aug 23, 2008
My favorite craft magazine is Marie Claire Idees even though I speak very little French. When I see a project in the magazine that I'd like to make, I painstakingly translate the instructions with the help of a French/English dictionary.
Looking through this book reminds me of Marie Claire Idees projects with English instructions! It turns out the author, Emma Hardy, does in fact contribute to that magazine.
The projects in the book are simple designs using beautiful choices of fabrics with easy embellishments. Ms. Hardy's projects are well designed. Compare her design for a laundry bag with Amy Butler's pattern and you'll see a more interesting balance of bands of fabric and of fabric choices.
The projects in the book include a very cute covered hanger embellished with a fabric, ribbon and button flower, beautiful bed linens, a useful doorstop, pillows, blinds, notebook cover and much more. I did not like every project in the book but I found 9 projects I'd like to make. Most books rarely have more than two that catch my eye.
The instructions are clear, the photos are beautiful.
