One Day
One Day
by David Nicholls
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, loved it, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Day (Paperback)
Read this after seeing review on BBC book program, and really glad I did. I'm quite a slow reader, yet read this 2 weeks. It's an easy read and a funny and entertaining read. It's a really interesting concept as it charts Emma and Dexter and where they are on a particular day each year. I have since read other books by David Nicholls, and I find he has a really easy style and his books are very funny and contain characters that you recognise.

bought this following BBC's program celebrities talk about favourite books. Despite an enthusiastic plug, I found this really hard going. It's quite disjointed, and whilst some sections are ok, others are really out of place. I just don't get it

Excellent book, lots of different Sunbonnet Sue pictures to choose from. I cannot draw at all, but found these very useful to create pictures, wall hangings etc and they have all turned out really well. I bought another book that was nowhere near as good.

Excellent book, don't usually go for westerns but thoroughly enjoyed this. The characters are engaging and the story is told in an endearing style. One of my favourite reads.

3.0 out of 5 stars slightly disappointed, hope it just takes practice, 20 Oct. 2014

I really like to circular sewing when I see it on things, but I've tried this a couple of times and the results aren't great, it seems to pucker and not match up. luckily I've tried on scraps, I'm not sure if having the extension table would help, but these are both expensive items

3.0 out of 5 stars looks lovely but check web page for corrections before you start, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book looks lovely, the fabrics are gorgeous and there is a wide range of designs. I do like Amy butler patterns, but have found them to have some mistakes which is frustrating. I made the teardrop bag from this book and had to amend one of the pieces as it just wouldn't work.

If you check out the Amy butler web page, there are some Fab free patterns and also corrections for 2 of the patterns in this book.

The book is still worth buying, and I'm glad to have it, but I have noted down the corrections and will always check the web page before starting another project


Sew Serendipity Bags: Fabulous Bags to Make and Love
Sew Serendipity Bags: Fabulous Bags to Make and Love
by Kay Whitt
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.94

5.0 out of 5 stars lots of lovely bags, 2 Jan. 2013
This is a lovely book making bag, and includes clever foldaway shopping bags, and tips for possible variations. I made the diaper bag and found the instructions clear to follow. My one gripe is that you need to read through the instructions to see what pieces you need to cut, whereas other books neatly have this info at the start so you can prepare before you sew, and plan how to cut your fabric. Definitely worth the money.

Making Vintage Bags: 20 Original Sewing Patterns for Vintage Bags and Purses

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars great bags, great instructions, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the Retro designs in this book, I've made a couple of bags from these books and the instructions are clear to use, and the end product is great. The only downside is that you have to photocopy the patterns and enlarge them to be able to use the templates. I have several other bag making books, this is by far the best.
