Format: Paperback
I haven't been sewing very long, but there are several simple, quick projects that are very achievable with a limited amount of skills, time and equipment. I thought the author seemed very aware that some users of the book might not be that experienced. There are also lots of slightly more complex projects, such as small quilted projects, for me to aspire towards achieving.

I really like the quirky, naive style of the projects, and have lots of lovely comments about the couple of small angels that I've made as practice projects. I love the Tilda books too, but the projects in this book feel a bit easier to make something that doesn't necessarily look exactly like the picture, but does look like I meant it to look like that. For example, my first angel's arm slipped as I sewed it, so her arms are at different heights, but she kind of looks like she's meant to look wonky.

Great book, fun projects, clear instructions - highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
Scandinavian is the trendiest style of the moment within the craft arena. Kajaa has a definite style and signature that people will either love or hate. It's fun, stylish and slightly off the wall. There are 21 colourful projects to make, mainly aimed at children, although teenagers and beyond will love the birds. it's fun to se a new take on dolls and the like. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I have lots of craft books and this has to be one of my favourites, it is a joy to read and full of inspiration. There are instructions for everything and once you have the hang of it, you can adapt the style to suit your own designs.

Format: Paperback
Love this book! I spend a huge amount of time sewing and reading blogs, books and magazines with sewing as the subject so to find something so fresh and different was a real treat. Lots of projects suitable for all levels - lovely personal details and Kaiser Witman's attitude to living in a cold climate with shot days and long winters also very inspiring for someone living in Scotland!
