5.0 out of 5 stars Just how a craft book should be, 13 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kirstie Allsopp Craft (Hardcover)
I love this book. So many craft books have been disappointing in the past; projects either too expensive, unrealistic, too technical etc for what I want it for - to pass on home crafts to my daughter and spend quality time together making our home special. This book ticks all the boxes.

It's beautifully photographed and there's a huge range of different projects from needle and paper crafts to garden, food and flower crafts. There are also some lovely touches such as lavendar bath bombes, bird seed cakes, home made jelly and elderflower cordial.

Some lovely projects you'll recognise from past tv programmes too for which I'm particularly grateful. Highest standard and something for all ages. Can't wait for the next one!

I am going to have a look in Smith's or somewhere first just to check it is that good as I don't have funds to waste and this seems a perfect gift for a friend's birthday next week.

Stunning Book. Beautiful pictures, detailed instructions and something for everybody. Good value with so many projects to do for gifts or with kids. Loving the Scarecrow.

I did find this book in TK MAXX 1 week before it went on sale...maybe they bought it else where but it does seem odd

Lol... Says the person sitting at home doing craft projects! :D
Don't worry, you didn't put me off... I bought a copy anyway (as a present!).
It's just that I've 'got out' enough to know that 'fake' internet reviews are a pretty common occurrence that's all. Have fun with your lavender bath bombes. :)

I think Amazon have pre-release copies which they distribute so that potential customers can see reviews straight away. Not everything has to be a scam!

Fair enough. I admit I've received books I've pre-ordered before (or on) the release date... So that may well be the case. I did question myself whether I was being too cynical!

To add a further comment to my original one I can say that my wife (recipient of the present) and daughter are getting a great deal of fun from this book, so despite my initial cynicism I would definitely recommend it.
