Nice projects but much more visual instructions needed
on 29 December 2009
This book is full of lovely sewing projects, but the actual instructions for the slightly more complex projects leave a lot to be desired. I'm a fairly experienced sewer but I have absolutely no idea how to put together, to give but one example, the patchwork knitting bag - many of the instructions are meaningless without some sort of visual aids. Many people find it much easier to follow visual instructions for craft projects rather than complicated written descriptions and I wish Kidston had included more diagrams and less pretty pictures of vintage quilts. I'd like to make that knitting bag but if I do try it I suspect I'll just have to work out how to do it from the picture of the finished project rather than the frankly bewildering guide.
