A creative way to being more green.

Waste is the watchword of this generation, so a creative book on how to be less wasteful by reinvigorating clothes is a fabulous idea. I love the idea that I can express my creativity at the same time by personalising my clothes. This is going to be especially useful for my son's jeans - he has at least four pairs that have worn through on the knee, and all in record time! Beyond recycling your own clothes, though, this book teaches so many sewing techniques that if you master them, you will have a whole arsenal of skills for embellishing any kind of creative sewing project that will turn something plain into something stunning.

Sewing better

I simply loved the book Mend It Better by Kristin Roach. It’s great especially for mothers and for those passionate about sewing. The author explains and shows through examples how to revive your old clothes and how to mend them better as the title says. It’s a good book that will show you the steps for a creative approach to sewing. You will certainly be famous for your creations with this book. I enjoyed it and the price is fair enough for the value of the book.
