Sewing Edges and Corners: Decorative Techniques for Your Home and Wardrobe (An Embellishment Idea Book Series) Reviews
I thought this book would be a good reference book for my projects. I am not an expert sewing items, I just know a little bit and I usually make a lot of mistakes but I think that's the best way to learn. Don't get me wrong, this is a really nice book about edges, specially when you are doing cushions but there is only 1 picture per page and the rest of the page is just instructions on how to do the edge you want.
I bought this book as a replacement for a damaged book I owned so obviously, I knew I would love it and needed to replace it. This book is not only for sewing edges and corners, it's title, but it gives examples of hems, cording, bindings in general, rickrack, exposed serged edges, binding knits, twisted yarn, novelty edges, etc. Although an owner of any machine would benefit from this book, Bernina owners (as I am) are doubly benefitted because it shows the uses of the various feet to make these applications easier. I am a believer that using the right foot can make a sewing project much easier and more professional looking. The illustrations explain in full detail how to do the projects.
I have done a lot of sewing. This book is really a quality teacher, for professional results, and it is very user friendly and understandable.
Okay, I'm a novice sewer. I have lots of novice/fun books from Amy Butler and others on how to make cute projects such as fabric baskets, pajamas and pillows. Enter my frustration. Most "beginner" books will tell you to finish a seam by "basting" or "cut into the allowance". It all seems like a foriegn language. If that be the case, Linda's book here is the translation for how to actually finish your project by making those edges and corners look professional. Between this book and Sewing 101 (which I also highly recommend), I was able to accomplish a task my husband considered impossible. I am looking at a set of beautiful designer-fabric pillows, made by me (yes me, a young 30 something)!! Can't wait to move on to some of those cute projects in other eh-hem books. Thanks, Linda for writing a clearly illustrated text with instructions in clear language!
Before I bought this book, I had checked it out of our local library several times. The style of the projects is kind of dated and not for me, but easy enough to look beyond. I consider myself an advanced/experienced sewer, yet still found Ms. Lee's tips and tricks to be very innovative, helpful, and inspiring. I go to reference this book fairly often.
This book covers in detail the little tips and hints for making a truly professional edge or corner. You'd think sewing a plain pillow would be easy - but then you end up with "dog ears." Never again! I found this little book to be extremely helpful and easy to follow.
Very pleased with product and shopping speed. Described accurately and price was great.
As described by the seller, easy to read, use, and lots of full colored pictures, examples, and simple instructions. I am a happy customer.
