A short basics section plus templates help even beginners create quick and stylish garments, home d├ęcor and other accessories.

"Carestio ("Fa La LaLa Felt") believes that fabric obsession isn't only for expert sewists. This collection of no-sew and low-sew projects takes a variety of materials, from quilting cottons to recycled clothing to paper maps, and transforms them into garments and accessories appropriate for everyday use. Upcycling is a recurring theme in the projects, and Carestio makes clever use of repurposed fabrics and garments. The projects that work best are the designs for children, such as the colourful sock monsters, the pencil roll made out of wool felt, and the teddy bear backpack . . . this is a fun set of projects that fills a gap in crafting collections." --"Library Journal "
