Sew What! Skirts. The author does a very good job explaining the basics of skirt making, and there are several project ideas. My favorite is the breezy beach wrap.
I just got lucky finding Sew & Stow at the library. There are tons of unique projects in here that you can use to organize your stuff. The first one up for me will be the hobby tote, but I also love the garment bag, lunch bag, shopping bag, and cleaning caddy. I'm also intrigued by the hammock and the best bed roll ever.
