What a brilliant book this is, the projects are really easy to do with clear instructions and templates, you will have to enlarge some templates which I know can drive some people to distraction including myself, but I promise you its worth the effort as you'll love the finished product, I've made a few things out of this book the first one being the house cushions you see on the front cover and you can use your own imagination to make them look different, I've made the patched heart and a pin cushion all of which I enjoyed making and was lost in my craft room for hours.

A delightful book which wont disappoint, very simple projects if your an experienced crafter you'll find these a doddle to do you could treat the projects as a easy break away from your more complex project, for the beginner you will find helpful hints, tips and instructions I'm not very experienced in sewing and I found the instructions easy to follow. I love this book and I'm really glad I bought it as this book is one of my favorites and beleive me I've bought loads of sewing books!.

If you love all things hearts, flowers with houses and birds then this book is for you as it has a very cath kidston feel about it, go on buy it I promise you'll love and I bet when you make one of the house cushions you'll be hooked on making more like me!! I have them everywhere in every possible colour in every room of my house.

Enjoy||

Lovely book full of fun and interesting textile makes. Don't know where to start first! The patterns and instructions are very clear and lots of images to help too. The cost for such a lovely book is extremely good. I recommend this book to anyone with some sewing skills, but a good sense of fun.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sewing Directory TOP 500 REVIEWER on 29 May 2013
Format: Paperback
If you love patchwork but don't have the time or patience to make quilts then this book would be ideal for you. It comprises of 25 small patchwork gifts from little brooches to patchwork cushions and bags made up in pretty vintage chic style fabrics.

The whole style of the book is pretty with cute little photos, useful tips in colourful boxes and hand drawn sketches of the gifts and plus some of the stages scattered throughout. The templates are at the end of each project, most require enlarging by 200% which may put some people off.

There's a good mix of projects so there should be something for everyone in this book.

I love this book. I have found it very easy to follow, and have made a few things now, including the rabbit, mouse and hanging mobile. Easy instructions, great detail.

Like many others, I have bought several sewing books in the past, however this is the best by far. Great illustrations, clear instructions and beautiful fabrics used throughout. Have just completed the first patchwork pillow and was delighted with the results. Love this book.
