This book is mostly simple projects. A lot of the projects use pre-hemmed items (tea towels, sheets, napkins) to try to save you the time / work of doing your own hemming! I did like the look of a lot of the patterns, but I would say to other people that if you're looking for a challenge, this might not be the book for you.
