Join me on my voyage of discovery, meeting passionate crafters, learning the secrets of their amazing artistry and then, for my sins, trying to compete with them in craft competitions across the country.'

5.0 out of 5 stars A good overview of a number of crafts! 17 Oct 2011
By Pompom TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the last one 20 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little bit disappointing 17 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just how a craft book should be 13 Oct 2011
By Eden
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book. So many craft books have been disappointing in the past; projects either too expensive, unrealistic, too technical etc for what I want it for - to pass on home crafts to my daughter and spend quality time together making our home special. This book ticks all the boxes.

It's beautifully photographed and there's a huge range of different projects from needle and paper crafts to garden, food and flower crafts. There are also some lovely touches such as lavendar bath bombes, bird seed cakes, home made jelly and elderflower cordial.

Some lovely projects you'll recognise from past tv programmes too for which I'm particularly grateful. Highest standard and something for all ages. Can't wait for the next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars double check instructions 6 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
Some of the crafts are truly beautiful, with different levels of difficulty involved, so there will be lots of things to explore in years to come. I have to say, though, that I am very disappointed with the Banana Cake recipe. I tried it because it had no sugar in the list of ingredients and I was looking for a low sugar cake. But after having made it I think that sugar was only left off the list by accident -- the cake was tasteless and not very good. Or is there a page of corrigenda anywhere that I missed?

Disappointing book with little innovative ideas. Two ideas are worth trying but the others are poor in design and outcome.
