My daughter is ready to shed the toddler style of her room and transition into something a little more hip, so when Chronicle Books asked Ohdeedoh if we'd like to have a look at this book, I jumped on it. I'm so glad I did!

The projects in Girl's World: Twenty-One Sewing Projects to Make for Little Girls by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom Fabrics are split pretty much down the middle between apparel (cute dresses!) and home dec, and even if you don't sew much, I'll bet there's something in here you could make. The instructions look easy to follow, and the glossary is awesome for explaining the basics. I especially liked the lessons about bias tape, hand tying, gathering, and piping.

I have to say, the absolute best thing about this book is the fabrics! Where have I been? Jennifer Paganelli's fabric line is total eye candy. I spend a ton of time in fabric stores, both brick and mortar and online, and Jennifer's amazing prints are now officially my favorite. The photos in the book do a fantastic job of showing how you can tie them together to create an innocent Boho chic world for a little girl (or for yourself).
