Fat Quarter Quick Makes is a lovely soft back book full of quick and easy projects made from fat quarters and even smaller pieces of fabric.
Its full of colourful photography using gorgeous fabrics with some great projects for beginners, children and more advanced crafters alike. The projects include mobile phone covers, bibs, book bags, cushions, bunting, camera straps, pattern weights, fabric flowers and an eye mask. There are some great projects that would be perfect for making as gifts.
My 11 year old daughter loved this book and was inspired to go off and make her own version of this tent tidy for her sewing bits and bobs.
We also loved the fabric flowers - a great project for children.
and the knitting bag. Perfect for all us crafters.
Fat Quarter Home is very similar in style but has 25 projects designed specifically for the home again using fat quarters and smaller bits of fabric.
Projects include a tea cosy, tote bag, plastic bag tidy, lavender bags, hot water bottle cover, wash bag, storage buckets, cushions and door stops amongst others. It is also full of inspiring photography and uses modern, vibrant fabrics that make you want to have a go at making the projects. It has step by step photographic instructions and both books have information about the materials, equipment and basic techniques that you will use as well as patterns.
I'm really looking forward to making some of the bathroom storage buckets.
