If you're looking for a book that has a couple pretty projects that it walks you through step by step, this is not the book for you.
What I love about this book is that it gives you the knowledge to make you own designs. It has templates for the various shapes, and also teaches you how to draw your own.
It does have pictures of some finished project meant to inspire your creativity.
