“If you enjoy making gifts for children and embrace the upcycling trend, then this book will appeal to you. Broken down into makes for babies, little ones (toddlers) and children up to ten years, the book contains 25 projects to sew, stitch or knit and comes complete with a tissue paper full sized pattern in an envelope inside the back cover. My particular favorite projects include reversible baby shoes, corduroy pull-on trousers, an easy-wrap dress and a hooded winter coat. The projects are clean and organic in their styling, embracing the popular zakka look.”—Sewing World
