Yes it's very pretty but....
on 8 August 2009
I agree with the other reviews that this book is beautiful to look at, and I am sure that I shall spend many hours leafing through the lovely pictures.
The cover and pages have a matt effect unlike all of the preceeding books and this certainly adds to it's visual charm.
I totally agree that the angels have been done to death in Tone's publications.
My gripe is that this feels like a poor sequel to 'Sew Pretty Homestyle' which I feel contains more practical items, which would not cost an arm and a leg to reproduce.
There are instructions for a beach bag and beach blanket which if made from the fabrics shown would be quite expensive. I appreciate that alternative fabrics can be used but the items are so pretty when made with Tilda materials I find it very difficult to match the 'prettiness' without the expense.
I guess that this is all down to personal taste and I am glad to have the book, I simply am not sure how many stuffed seashells, forest animals, angelic cows and angels will fit into my home.
