Review Checker Newsletter - July 1, 2007
"Shannon Mullen followed the success of her first book, Make It You -- Sew Hip, with "Your Space”. Her new book features projects to decorate a bedroom, a dorm room, or a first apartment! Again, she operates outside of the box on every page. By changing the fabrics, ribbons, and embellishments on each project, the maker can create their own unique look. AND, most of the projects are simple enough to be done in an afternoon.
I am giving this book to all of the graduates in my life. I am looking forward to spending time this summer helping them create their personal space. But since Shannon has made the patterns and projects SEW easy, all they’ll really need from me is my checkbook and sewing machine!"
