More than just a pair of days, a weekend is also a state of mind-a feeling of relaxation and freedom to immerse ourselves fully in a favorite activity. In Weekend Sewing, designer Heather Ross presents creative projects for clothing, accessories, and home items that can be made in a weekend or less. Some, like the Quick Garden Gloves and Ruby's Bloomers, take a few hours; others, like the Weekend-Away Travel Bag and Trapeze Sundress, require a day or two-but all of them capture that weekend feeling.
And because weekends are often the most fun when they're social, Ross features ideas that encourage us to share our stitching and our time, such as a recipe for soup to simmer while sewing, then serve to guests later in the day, and tips for transporting a sewing machine to a friend's house for an afternoon of social stitching.

The sewing instructions are beautifully illustrated, and patterns for the projects are included on pullout sheets.
Heather Ross designs fabric, fashion projects, sewing patterns, and stationery goods. Her two lines of fabric, Heather Ross for Free Spirit and Heather Ross for Kokka, are sold in quilting and fabric stores in the U.S. and abroad. Ross lives in New York City.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this book I bought this book, knowing nothing about it, but am so happy I did. It has a lot of great, useful patterns, from kids clothes to womens dresses, to dish cloths. All the patterns are included in a pull out sheet (which you have to trace out) in the front and book. Patterns are well instructed. A beautiful book to boot. I have made many of the patterns many times. Just love it, and highly recommend this book for beginner and advanced sewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely wonderful I loved this book as it was well written and easy to use and read. There were projects for not only the novice sewer, like my daughter, but also for myself who is a more experienced sewer.
