Sewing is at the forefront of the new craft revolution and part of its charm comes from rediscovering the skills of our grandmothers and learning to recycle treasured scraps of fabric. Celebrated Oregon-based craft blogger Alexandra Smith, AKA Lola Nova, has created the perfect sewing book for the new crafters. With 25 highly original projects arranged into chapters on Boho, Vintage, Natural, Eclectic and Whimsy, you will soon be raiding thrift stores and yard sales for material to transform in to gifts, home accessories, clothes and bags. Projects include a Little Joy Dress, Lola Handbag, Into the Woods Throw, Deer Diary and Call Me Cushion. For each project there are step-by-step instructions (illustrated with photographs) that will guide the beginner through the making process, while Alexandra's innovative ideas will provide fresh inspiration for the experienced sewer. Gorgeous photography by top lifestyle photographer Yuki Sugiura captures the sheer pleasure of turning junk-store fabrics into something beautifully handmade.

Super cute ideas that look doable for relatively new sewists, although I haven't tried any of the projects (yet!). Lots of room for fabric choices, and the author suggests alternate uses for several of the projects.
