Sweet - but a bit too basic
on 24 November 2013
I bought this the day before Corinne appeared on Create and Craft TV (didnt expect that !!) If I had known the TV programme was on, and watched it first, I would not have bought the book. The ideas are sweet, novel, but not really different to whats already out there, and quite honestly was a bit astonished that something so basically put together gained such hype, and a TV showing.....
- and there are plenty of websites you could get the patterns for free, so not really that orignal either for the cost. Some of the items, I recall doing similar at junior school 40 years ago (the patterns have stood the test of time). The book is well put together, very colourful, (not much of it, but the price reflects that as well). I bought it to make some xmas tree decs for the local craft fair - but I think rather than sit on the shelf gathering dust, it will make a good xmas pressie for a friend who has still has children to keep amused.
