I recommend this book completely - everything I've made has turned out exactly as the images present, which is no small feat! - and am certain I'll continue to use it for years to come.

I LOVE the pictures.
I LOVE the projects.
I made the first embroidered bag.
Modestly challenging but really good directions.
I had to double my felt because I couldn't find felt thick enough but it worked out well because the second layer covers the back of the embroidery.
LOVED the finished project.
I can't wait to work on more!
I really like the clean lines of Scandinavian design. In fact, I am already thinking about how I might use some of the design elements in this book for other types of projects that I enjoy, such as mosaics, painting, clay work, and so forth. This will be one of the most treasured books in my extensive art & craft book collection. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend it.
Other than that, there are many wonderful projects and the instructions for the sewing and embroidery are very clear.
