Packed with everything the modern baby (and mom) needs, this book is separated into occasions: party time, home time, go time, dress-up time, and of course, play time. The designs are creative and imaginative, yet practical. With such a variety of projects, and the option of colorful fabrics, your baby and you will be very stylish. --Threads Magazine; July 11, 2012
If there's a baby on the horizon in your family, this book by designers Marcea Owen and Janice Liljenquist will ensure that they are welcomed into the world surrounded by handcrafted goodness. Instructions are provided for 20 different projects, including quilts, cushions, bags for carrying baby's stuff around and some softies to cuddle. Some are quick and easy - perfect for novices who have been inspired by the baby's birth to start crafting. Others will require a greater investment of time, but are still very achievable for a determined beginner. The instructions are detailed, and are illustrated with diagrams and photographs. The templates are provided full size on a tear-out pattern sheet inside the back cover. --Australian Homespun Magazine; 11/1/12
