I was not quite sure just what I would think of this book when I first saw. I think I was leery of the title - only because I tend to dislike titles like fast, fun easy or fun & quick. Dont get me wrong we all need a quick fix at times and more or less instant result can be a very good thing sometimes too...I am just one of those people who stills likes real letters and finds more comfort in slow cloth than quick and easy.The first thing I noticed about this book is its quality. Its a nice size, the paper is high quality and the cover spiral binding is very well made - these are things that I so look for in books - and yes, I am a page sniffer.

I love the smell of ink on paper - and I can be critical of paper color and paper quality - the latter especially in hard-covered books or those books that are made to get a lot of use. Of course the next thing that I looked at were - what else?!

- the patterns. The patterns are divided into sections with titles such as On The Go (bags, lunch bags, lap top covers etc), Household Affairs (tea cozies,aprons, hot& cold packs), Outfit Your Small Wonder (obviously geared to clothing for your own little one). There are patterns for dog couture items, toys for children, great shopping bags and a wealth of small projects that really can be made with just a yard of fabric.

Also included are things like sewing fundamentals - good for beginners or as a refresher for those of us with older cloth fixations. A couple of the patterns are more like instructions for doing things like covering a cork board or scale with fabric. No necessarily sewing projects but they can be done with a yard or less of fabric.Some of these projects are for things that we could all probably figure out how to make.

I dont know about you , but there are times when I am thrilled not to have to re-invent the wheel - and enjoy the fruits of what others have made pattern for so that I can save my brain cells for the more involved projects that I barely have to complete as it is. Simple and right in front of me with a how-to can be a real time save. have been on a kick to find good looking alternatives to to the now ubiquitous grocery store provided green bag.

This book includes two patterns that are good. All in all I really like this book a lot and will highly recommend it. It seems to have something that will please everyone and is one of those books that will be a good resource and reference book - and yes, it does hold a lot of things that could be termed fast, fun and fabulous ! Give it a try - I dont think that you will be disappointed.
