Beautiful book and fun to look at but the projects are not very interesting. I’ve been sewing about 30 years, my mom showed me the basics when I was a child and since then I’ve read or watched videos to improve my skills and learn new techniques. this book still had some new information for me and I got the most out of the chapter on fabrics and how to select material and threads for different projects. I bought this book used so I was pleased with the purchase but if I had bought new and paid full price I would be a bit disappointed so that’s why I gave it three stars.

This book is a godsend: it has many of the features I was trying to get familiar with as a new immigrant to the US. Ms. Stewart's detail-oriented explanations and minuscule, to the "T" information makes every project a breeze. Additionally, very convenient templates are ready for printing on included in the book CD.

Photos of most important aspects of projects are included as are shopping lists.

The very first pages of setting up a sewing shop with a tip of taping little baskets in drawers under the sewing table top is very helpful, with this tiny detail to use tape stronger than the regular "scotch" tape used to fasten papers (with stronger tape the baskets will stay fastened).

I yet have to find time to go through all the projects, but the first now will be to dye some vintage sheer window courtains that lost their white crisp sheer.

And, Ms. Stewart's smiling face that is her signature emblem on all her products makes even the most hesitant first timer a little more confident that if the steps are followed, the end product will be just as beautiful as the ones in the pictures.

I ordered some other books by her, for entertaining, Christmas and for general housekeeping (cannot remember the title off hand). These usually include recipes for a 100 guests, which I need to scale down to my smaller needs. The housekeeping book has tons of information, but is a bit lacking in detail as opposed to this one (in many cases it states to use mild dishwashing soap or mild detergent as opposed to specific suggestions what to find in stores. Again, I am a first generation immigrant and do not necessarily know which ones are the "mild" ones).

Thank you Ms. Stewart for this wonderful book and the others!

I bought this after having reviewed the entire thing at a local B&N, and since I found over half of the projects are things I want to try out or I can change slightly to suit my needs, it is a good book for me. As per some of the other reviews, this is not a beginners' book, nor is it something I recommend for those that cannot think in a 3D mindset. Many of the projects I have to read and re-read the steps to get a clear visual in my mind what I will be doing to make the item. It really makes me focus on what I am doing, and that in turn helps me determine how or if I need to change anything.

To date I have made the sock-doggies for my son, the wrap a-line skirt, and used Martha's technique for printing on canvas curtains to make additions to some store-bought curtains I have for a guest bedroom. I have also really enjoyed the beautiful images in this book and have gathered ample home decor and organization ideas from it.

The illustrations are nice and it’s very colorful, more like a magazine than a pattern book. Got it for my mother and we both enjoy paving through it.

This book is heavy- do some weight lifting. But it's full of helpful information- I mean, it is Martha, after all. And it has some projects in it too- again, it is Martha! I bought it used- in good condition, so I'm happy I have it! Great reference!

I think Martha's "kingdom" has gotten to big for her to oversee properly.
for example: The felt baby shoes made from the pattern included in this book
are so very cute I made a dozen pair, only to discover that the ankle strap has
never fit around any baby I've tried. . . However the layout, artwork, and organization is A+,
very inspirational.

I am reviewing a publishers review copy for this article. The book was paperback, printed in black and white with VERY poor quality photos, and did not include the CD. I have looked in several places to find out if the CD is both PC and MAC compatible and cannot discover the answer.

With that in mind, I assume the final book is in full color. In which case, it will be a treat to look at! And if the CD is Mac/PC compatible, it will be a useful addition.

This book is not encyclopedic, as many other reviewers have pointed out. The title is somewhat misleading. It is a book that is FULL of easy sewing projects - everything from making simple stuffed toys to work aprons to turning cloth napkins into decorative pillows. I would have loved this book as a wedding or shower gift when I was a young wife trying to live on a budget.

This book would be a nice gift to a young person just starting out on his/her own. Yes, I think there are some men who would find plenty to make from this book, though it has that Martha "girliness" a guy with a sewing machine could do a fine job of decorating and making gifts from the ideas in this book.

My 22-yr-old daughter, who is handy with a sewing machine but not yet an expert, saw this book on my coffee table and begged to have it! She loved the projects and felt they were all within her skill level. She liked the variety, and creativeness of projects like putting fancy trim on plain bed sheets, or making your own, dip-dyed shopping bags.

I'm not a Martha Stewart fan, don't read her magazines, and haven't seen any of these projects before. I'd say this is a very nice book for beginning sewers who already have an understanding of how a sewing machine works. I have ordered a "real" copy for my daughter and will give it to her for college graduation.
Very nice book. Delivery was on time, arrived in mint condition. Love the content and will use it numerous times as a reference and I want to try several of the projects given.
Thank you!
