Cynthia Treen has a way with fabric. She can pick up a piece of cloth and, literally within an hour or two, transform it into something wonderful--a chic wool hat from an out-ofstyle sweater, say, or an elegant blossom from a favorite piece of silk. In Last-Minute Fabric Gifts, the follow-up to the immensely successful Last- Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson, Treen teaches all of us to perform such fabric magic no matter how little sewing experience we may have.This inspiring book comes with 30 easy projects for quick-to-make gifts ranging from fabric-covered notepads to a tea-dyed sequined scarf to a baby quilt. Arranged by how long it takes to complete each project, the book focuses on gifts that generally require less than three hours of time. What's more, Treen clearly details the knowledge and skills you need to improvise on these projects, allowing you to customize the color, pattern, and texture to suit the occasion. Complete with 70 full-color photographs and a final chapter on innovative ways to wrap gifts with fabric, Last-Minute Fabric Gifts is brimming with creative ideas sure to appeal to novice and experienced sewers alike.

Excellent projects. I've made several of the gifts in this book over the years to great reviews!

This book was mediocre...very few new ideas and even less inspiration.
