This is the greatest pattern book, everything is explained really well, and it's a good mix of practical and fun projects. It even includes basic techniques like how to pick the right fabrics and how to print patterns. I'm most excited to make challah covers, a chuppah, a tallit and kippahs. The full list of projects in the book are Challah Cover, Hanukkah Dreidel Game Kits, Purim Mishloach Manot Boxes, Passover Matzah Cover, Hand Washing Towel, Havdalah Spice Pouch, Wedding Huppah, Bridal Veil, Kippah, Tallit, Tallit Bag, Tefillin Bag, Mezuzah Case, Tzedakah Jar Wrap, Mizrach, Hamsa, Shalom Pillow, Aleph-Bet Cuddle Blanket

A lot of projects. Printed it out and it was quite large. Worth the cost. Would purchase from this vendor again.
