I teach beginner sewing and this is just about exactly what I teach...you can't go wrong with this book.
And in addition to all the great basics these were two pages that really popped out as really cool to me because I don't know about you but my bathroom is the easiest, quickest and fun to redecorate and revamp. I love swapping out my shower curtain and towels for a new look. Confession time, it is currently decorated in Hello Kitty.
