The book has sections explaining few terms of sewing Tinaway where she shares tips and techniques for Pleating, Gathering, Ruffles, Binding and Making Your Own Binding, Adding Decorative Elements, Mitering Corners, Quilting and so on with beautiful watercolor illustrations at every step.
In this Concealed spiral bound book you will find projects " for the little ones" and " for the bigger ones ". There are some cute adorable projects like to name a few the baby lounge suits, moses basket, sweet dreams canopy, the reversible skirt, maryjane booties, cute chef hat , crafty apron and many more for your little and bigger ones (younger ones). There are some projects which i think can also be made for even more bigger kids like the pouch backpack, puffed necklaces, sleeping bag tote.
