Handmade Style: 23 projects that you’ll love to wear, to carry, and to use. This thoughtful collection will keep any sewist busy for a full year. Beautiful projects range from small to large. All of them are designed to have broad appeal and meant to coordinate with other projects so you can create the ultimate handmade style for all this and more:

- Accessories including clutches and bags
- Home Decor including quilts, baskets and a bench
Instructions are thoughtfully hand-illustrated throughout in a clean and simple Japanese craft-book style and the inspiring photographs were shot on location in and near my home.
