.sew what?.

Okay, working for a bookstore, I realize, is dangerous.  Especially for someone who LOVES books!!  Oh well!  Once again, while shelving some new titles, I noticed a new addition to the craft/hobby section.  Needless to say, while on a break, I had to make my way back over there to skim it over.  The book I have been waiting for has finally arrived!!  It is called Free-Style Handmade Bags & Skirts, by the editors of Woonjin Publishing, a talented group based out of Korea.  

What I love about this book is that it features a diverse array of skirts, as well as, totes.  With the ever fashionable A-line skirt created from scratch to reforming a pair of camouflage pants, there are so many patterns to work with to create a skirt that is definitely YOU.  The instructions seem rather easy to follow, and all the patterns are included with the book.  Only drawback:  the patterns are based on a size 4, which I am FAR from!  Ha!  

The book is a fun one to add to any seamstress' collection, or anyone that is interested in sewing.  I already have an alteration project in mind.  But that will be for another blog.  All I ask is that you wish me luck!
