Another great sewing book but with quite a different style to Twinkle, Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing is also packed with ideas and advice. These 30 imaginative projects from Kathy Cano-Murillo in her distinctive colourful, Latin style have a definite thread of recycling, repurposing, and bargain shopping running through them. Great ideas for projects big and small.
