Although Ashley Johnston is comfortable with a needle and thread—and really enjoys making handmade items for her children and home—she could certainly understand that sewing machines can strike fear and dread into the hearts of many crafters. The complicated machinery with the fussy parts as well as confusing pattern directions send many people running from any craft that requires sewing. No-Sew Love is filled with ideas for the non-sewing crafter or for the more casual sewist who would rather not haul out the sewing machine for a quick project. Materials all easily found at craft and fabric stores—hem tape, fusible webbing, a variety of glues, and of course, fabric—are all you need to whip up the 50 no-sew wonders in the book. There are throw pillows, grommet curtain panels, cute kids' clothing, holiday decorations, and even accessories for you! Projects are photographed at each step for crystal-clear directions, and sure-to-please results.
