I am a great fan of the Love to Sew series, with previous titles including Quilted Flowers, Mug Rugs and Teddy Bears. They are well priced and even if your bookshelf is starting to groan under the weight of craft books then the handy size will be welcomed! This latest title, Sewing Room Accessories, has been written by Debbie Shore, a name that may be familiar to readers through her YouTube channel and previous books. Her new book contains fifteen projects, all made in the practical style Debbie is known for. It starts with pincushions, and then goes on to patterns for a sewing case, sewing machine covers, a tool roll - everything you could think of that you need to make sewing easier. My favourite thing is the Ironing Stand which is based on foldable TV tables found in homeware shops. It looks fairly easy to make, and and would be very handy to have around the house when I sew. The book opens with a short introduction of techniques, but the clear step-by-step photos for each project makes it suitable for all abilities. Many of the projects have details such as pockets and zips to create clever storage ideas. The patterns are written in inches and centimetres, so will keep both quilters and dressmakers happy. If one of your new year's resolutions was to be organised and sew, then you will find lots of inspiration in this book.

There is a lot of information in the book useful to those that are new to sewing. There are several projects many of which I will be making myself, my first project will be the sewing machine cover which I have been wanting to make for a long time. The pin cushion project looks easy and so pretty! All the projects can be made from fabric that I already have and many would make lovely gifts. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

The newest title in the Love to Sew series from TV presenter Debbie is a wonderful collection of practical yet pretty items for the sewing enthusiast.  As always Debbie provides a comprehensive guide to the fabrics and equipment required together with detailed step-by-step instructions.  There are fifteen delightful projects to choose from including machine covers, caddies and totes for sewing equipment, ironing accessories and a fabulous funky pumpkin pincushion! Outstanding value-for-money, this is a must-have book for sewers of all abilities.

Anybody who sews is going to require places to keep materials and items that help with various tasks.  Here is a book of projects for making more than just pincushions to keep your sewing area tidy and enable you to transport your kit as well.

There are fifteen projects in here, some of which can be made out of leftovers from other projects.  Cotton fabric is used throughout, making this a book that will have a lot of appeal to quilters.  Apart from the basic sewing kit you wont need much else to make these projects, but there is a page showing some additional supplies such as a bamboo creaser, tacking glue pen, fabric clips etc.  These items are all optional.  This is a book aimed at those who already sew so is not for beginners, although there are instructions at the front for doing appliqué and creating and using bias strips.  Make cases, rolls and caddies for storing tools, bags for carrying to classes, a sewing machine cover and useful pressing mitt.  Each project has staged instructions with both captions and photographs, as well as a list of what materials and tools you need and a larger photo of the finished item.  As this is not for beginners the staged photographs are not numerous but do illustrate the trickier parts.  There are also often more than one view of the item showing it open as well as closed for example which is useful.

Have just received this book and cannot wait to start sewing. The photographs and detailed instructions look suitable even for me (a beginner!). The sewing room accessories are well thought out and would also make fantastic present ideas. I now need to investigate Debbie Shore's other books.


Jean Lunn

This is a very Good versatile sewing accessory book, nearly ever item has more than one use, not only for storing sewing items but for bathroom and dressing table storage.  The Tidy Caddy for make up, or toiletries.  The hot iron caddy would be suitable for curling tongs.  The tool roll would be ideal for make up or jewellery or even as a pencil case.  The cutting mat carrier would be ideal for a student to carry folders in.  All together it is a very useful versatile sewing book.  I would highly recommend anyone to buy it and I give it 10/10 excellent quality.


Julie Dawn

A straight forward easy to follow book and most of the projects have multiple uses beyond the sewing room, which i think is very handy if you want to make personal gifts for yourself and friends, lovely little book


Maria Pujol

I liked the book because the instructions are easy to follow and with big photos, to make it easy to follow the steps you have to do to complete the project. It teaches too some useful tricks to make your own projects better and basic skills to help you!
I loved the Ribbon Stash project, perfect for a pocket bag or to use it as a wrap gift!
