This is a cool book even if you don't quilt. (which I don't) Lots of hip, simple projects to do on the machine with your scraps. These slippers were fun and easy to make espicially since there are few straight lines. The hardest part was sewing the sole on since you are going through lots of layers. I wasn't able to sew a straight seam so I did a crooked seam a few times around the edge. It goes with the crazy uneven seams done on the strap. Great for schlepping around the house.
