I live locally to the Makery Emporium workshop/shop, which is a really sweet crafty shop with some lovely things and materials (if a bit over priced) so I was really looking forward to getting this book written by the owner. However, although being an attractive, nicely illustrated book, it seems like they have focused more on it looking good than the actual projects themselves and the instructions.

Other reviews say the book is only good for beginners, and i would agree that they are mostly quite simple projects, which is fine if thats what you want. I am a knitter and do general other crafty things so found these projects fine, but i have also found, as a novice sewer, that the instructions are not very good. I have been attempting to make one of the sewing projects - iPad case - and I have found that there are not enough diagrams and the instructions themselves are at times actually incorrect or just very unclear. There are mistakes such as instructing you to hem the short end of a fabric piece when it should be the long end, and general sloppiness such as in one part stating the width x length and in another length x width, just to confuse you, and not mentioning the fact that if you use a patterned fabric in this project, on one side it will be upside down due to the way its constructed (conveniently hidden in the picture that only shows you one side of the finished item). these small details are fairly important when you are a beginner and as thats who this book appears to be aimed at, I would have preferred more accurate, helpful instructions and diagrams, instead of the whole page of completely unnecessary random arty pictures of materials next to every project.

I was in Bath a few weeks ago and came across The Makery Emporium and instantly fell in love with the shop, then found that they were bringing out a craft book and I was sold straight away! When I ordered it I hadn't actually seen the contents of the book but love crafts and liked the idea of different projects including gift ideas. When I got this book I wasn't disappointed at all, it was far better than I'd even imagined as it covers a wide range of crafts and has lots of lovely projects from glasses cases and jewellery to floor rugs and slippers. The crafts in this book range from knitting, machine sewing, crochet, paper craft and even a shrink plastic project.

The best thing about this book is that it comes with full size patterns in the back of the book - no need to photocopy and enlarge or download and print out on reems of paper (like some other craft/sewing books), all you need is some tracing paper or similar (I used some parchment paper I had hanging around for one of the projects). The only thing I would have liked is a flap/envelope or pocket to store the pull out patterns as once you've taken them out of the book I'm worried I'll loose them.

The instructions are easy to follow and the book suggests alterations you can make and more ideas, such as on the fabric keyrings the designs used are initials with an alphabet included on the pattern sheet however they suggest looking for other alphabets or designs and suggest a larger seam allowance when using other designs which is really helpful.

Really disappointed with this book. I've had it on my wish list for a while and was really looking forward to receiving it, but sadly I'll be putting it straight back on amazon for sale :-(
There are no projects in here that I would make that haven't already been printed hundreds of times in various publications.
All the projects are pretty simple and none of them are very inspiring. I thought there would have been slightly more sewing ideas in here,which is what I was mainly looking for, but it's more a multitude of little crafts.
It might be a nice book for a teenager just wanting to start trying crafts, but it's no good for people looking for more inspiration in their chosen craft.
Projects included:
Decoupage pendant
clasp purse
crochet slippers
wrist warmers
shrink jewellery
camisole (which looks horrible!)
tape measure brooch(!)
sunglasses case
compact mirror case (just 2 squares of fabric sewn together!)
shoulder bag (pretty basic tote)
passport case
make-up roll
knitted cup cuff
toy truck pincushion (basic pin cushion attached to a toy truck- no idea who would want that?)
tablet case (very basic)
monogram keyring
card tags
rubber stamps
lunch bag
cuckoo clock made from felt
decoupage tins
embroidered bed linen (they have just taken some plain white pillow cases and embroidered lines up the side)
tile coasters (more decoupage)
chunky knitted rug
stag head (hideous!)
cushion
button magnets (just covering buttons with fabric!)
patchwork pouffe
tea light tins (we've all seen these before - just bash a load of holes in an empty tin can and stick a tea light inside!)
book ends
frilly apron.

Its a real shame as I love the Makery and have been to classes there. Their shop is awesome!
The book feels rushed and doesn't really give a feel of the Makery at all.
