4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good stuff 14 Nov 2009
By Elaine B Reader TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Bit of a mixed bag in this one, some things useful to most people, others no use whatsoever.
There's a picnic rug,a breakfast set (as on cover) and a snakes and ladders mat, a spring cleaning apron and a duvet and pillowcase set, a rag rug and a monthly wall planner. The usual throw and cushion are in there and a house picture mini quilt, a floral wreath and a festive angel doll bring up the rear. The book gives techniques and templates and uses patchwork, quilting, sewing oilcloth, applique work, rag rugging and some embroidery. Instructions are good and easy to follow, nothing is complicated and the look is comfortably homemade. I found it a bit too homespun for me BUT that kind of look is very popular so I think it will suit a lot of people very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some lovely things..... 7 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I'd agree with the other review that has some lovely ideas and others I am not likely to ever make. I hoped there would be tons more ideas like the cover.
Not bad for the price. Would recommend "Free and Easy Stitch Style: Go Freestyle with Machine Embroidery for Uniquely Creative Motifs, Patterns and Projects
by Poppy Treffry" if you like these crafts.

5.0 out of 5 stars SEW INSPIRATIONAL! 15 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
What an amazingly inspirational book. Extremely well written with some beautiful photography; the projects are not only inviting but equally practical, usefull and gorgeous. I've dug out all my old fabrics and sorted old clothes to get cracking on my door wreath in time for Chritsmas Day! This book would make a superb gift and will always be on my coffee table!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Keeper! 22 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I'm thrilled with this book. It's beautifully photographed. The instructions are clear and accurate and it's full of projects that are just a little bit different from the the usual. No chance of me giving this away for Christmas!

3.0 out of 5 stars some nice ideas 6 April 2013
By debs
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
a wide range of ideas to make,my favourite is the felted tea cosy shown on the cover. The only criticism I have about this book is, that like so many others, you have to enlarge the templates for a lot of the designs. Personally I'd rather pay a bit more for the book and have the templates already at the correct size. For this reason alone I've only given this book a 3 star rating.

This book has some real good patterns and some that are of no use really. However

3.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point. 8 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
A well laid out book with clear instructions and photographs. Some nice ideas that I will probably incorporate into other projects as the ones in the book seem a little basic. A book more suited to people with limited experience in sewing and crafts in my opinion.
