There are plenty of craft books out there which can give more (and possibly better) projects on sewing, cross stitch, flower arranging, baking papercrafts etc, but there are very few that draw such a wide spread of crafts together and present them in one book. Designed to tie in with Kirstie's new show on craft, this book presents a really diverse range of projects. It is true to say that those who already have their chosen craft may not find it to their taste, but, for those who would like to dip their toes into other crafts, I think this book is a really good place to start.

The book is divided into the following chapters: Needlcrafts, Textile Crafts, Paper Crafts, Food Crafts, Garden Crats, Flower Crafts and Gift Crafts. In each chapter Kirstie (or her researcher I suspect) gives a brief background to the sections within that craft section - for example: Needlecraft - sewing, embroidery, knitting and quilting. This is then followed by a number of projects. There are some projects that I have really liked and will certainly be trying (one in fact I will start later today), and some that I suspect I will never even attempt, simply because they don't inspire me. On balance there are more projects that inspire than don't.

I am a massive fan of Kirstie Allsopp and although I loved 'Homemade Home' for it's quirky 'Kirstie-ness' even I had to admit that it probably wasn't as good as I had anticipated.
'Craft' is a different matter altogether. Gone are the pages and pages of opinion and in their place are masses and masses of projects!

The best part about this book is it's diversity. there are crafts that I scarcely knew existed outside of school. For example, I would never dream of buying a book on paper-craft, but looking at the projects within the book, I might give it an afternoon of my time!

Featured are a few simple but beautiful projects from all parts of the crafting world from sewing to paper-crafts: it is almost like an introduction, a taster session! I'm sure that if you were to discover that you had a particular liking for one of the crafts, you could buy a book which was substantially more comprehensive; but if Kirstie had intended to provide an overview for 'craft' in general then she certainly has succeeded.

The whole look of the book is so kitsch and seventies, even the layout of the project instructions looks a little old fashioned, but it works and only adds to the charm.
All in all, as a book of crafts as opposed to a specific craft, this is a triumph.

Preordered this book and was really looking forward to receiving it. Am a fan of the shows but Kirsties Homemade Britain was a big disappointment and I was hoping that this one would be better. Unfortunately I personally would only really do one or two of the crafts. My biggest gripe is that as you go through the book you see lovely pictures of crafts but no instructions on how to make them. There is a picture of a gorgeous paper rose on one page but nothing on how to make it. I appreciate that it is difficult to please everyone and include everything but I find a lot of the things in this book very samey to other books. Nothing really stands out for me. Sorry Kirstie, I think you are great & have done lots for the craft industry but this book doesn't live up to my expectations. Also some of the crafts mean a lot of outlay buying the equipment and some of us just don't have the money. Again, I know you can't please everyone. I am sure that lots of people will be inspired by this book but its just not for me.

Having watched the first episode of the television series accompanying the book I was eagerly anticipating the arrival of this book. As with the tv series the book covers a large variety of crafts, so is ideal if, like me, you are keen to try your hand at various crafts without the outlay of specialist books on each. Kirstie's enthusiasm for all things crafty shines through in both the book and the tv series, and her have a go attitude is very encouraging. Some of the projects require specialist equipment or supplies e.g. the silver clay pendants, bath bombs and wicker birdhouse, but there are also several projects that are achievable with a minimal outlay on supplies.

My only gripe about the book and the reason I didn't give it five stars is that not all of the projects shown on the tv series are included in the book, the recipe for a fruit cake given in the book is from an earlier incarnation not the winning fruit cake seen in the tv series, the silver metal clay project is for a button necklace not the key necklace seen in the programme. Whilst these are both nice projects I would have liked instructions for the actual projects instead of having to download these from the website, with perhaps variations also given as extras in the book.
