Sew Darn Cute: 30 Sweet & Simple Projects to Sew & Embellish

I was really disappointed with this book.
Although it was filled with beautiful photographs and cute design ideas, the designs themselves were so totally elementary that I am pretty sure you could google and find a free pattern for everything featured. For example, sewing coasters? It's 2 pieces of square fabric sewn together and then top-stitched.
Perhaps a VERY new and beginner level seamstress might like this, or a very young teenager, but to have an entire page dedicated to cutting a letter out of fabric and sewing it onto a white tee shirt seemed like a cop out.
The cute little sewing kit (as pictured on the book's cover) was something I would make, but it is definitely not worth purchasing this entire book.
Have you read this book? If so, did you like it?
