"Anne's enthusiasm is totally infectious! I love that these projects foster your child's imagination as well as your own. I love the discussion of color theory and experimentation in the design process. As for approach and technique, I like that the projects don't require patterns and you don't really need a sewing machine, and the emphasis on adaptability (especially being able to alter a piece to suit a boy). Anne's instructions are clear and easy to follow, and I really like the way her personality comes through. ... in this Craftsy class you can almost forget you aren't in the same room with your teacher. Highly recommended!"
