Love to Sew Studio Loves "Twinkle Sews" book.

We also have Wenlan Chia's  "Twinkle Sews" in our studio. It's definitely for the more advance student though! The patterns are on a disk and you can print them right on your own computer. We love her designs and youthful spirit in her collection of 25 pieces of clothing to make in this book.
