When I received my copy, I was immediately smitten with all the crafty ideas Erin shares... especially the super cute "Toe Zone Ballet Slippers" on page 49. I also noticed a pullout with patterns on it for tracing ~ how nice!
Before I ran to my fabric stash to start a new project... I read the beginning of the book about how the Seminole Indians came up with this style of patchwork, and was impressed by their ingenuity even through terrible times. Sometimes having the background information is very motivational and after reading some history, I was even more anxious to get started on a project!
For those who don't know, I like soccer... and I live in Portland, OR and we are becoming huge Timbers fans. When I was leafing through the projects to pick which one I wanted to do first, my hubby was looking over my shoulder and when he saw the "Icicle Scarf" he was like: "You HAVE TO make Timbers scarves!!" Decision made.
The instructions in the book were very easy to follow. The hardest part for me was finding the right fabric colors! These are what I ended up with:
