1.5 stars rounded up because of the dog motif.

This is primarily an appliqué book although there are a few embroidery stitches used. There is a technique used for some of the designs other than the norm of basically making a patch of a design and attaching it. It is appliquéing each piece of the design, like each stripe on a teapot separately. There is also a project where each piece is set apart leaving a gap a little like stained glass is separated by a line.

The motifs are ho hum to me except
A lovely little book full of things to make and do. Some of the items in this book and gorgeous and use Kidston's iconic designs. Perhaps my only issue with it is that they are all appliqué and there are no patterns for the actual items themselves. Thus, in many ways, the book is simply a selection of design ideas as opposed to patterns and things to make. Also, some of the templates are rather fiddly to enlarge - enlarging in itself is not a problem but when she suggests enlarging by 263.5% or ...more

When I saw this on the library shelf I was excited because I love Kidston's style so much, but this book of projects is disappointing. Too many of the projects are "just so simple -- do this do that [and then a miracle occurred] and you end up with this adorable" . . . whatever.

It's true -- the skills required are pretty basic, but to execute them as well as they are done in this book you need more instruction that she gives. And frankly, the projects are not all that interesting. Many better cr

OK, this is one of those books that was only printed because of the name of the author. This was BAD. I am not a crafty chica, not even a little bit - and I had already heard of all these projects and knew how to do them. So the projects were easy and unoriginal, there might still be design inspiration - nope. I thought this was a waste of the paper it was printed on.

These projects are not good for beginners and the measly stuff you apparently get 'free' with this $40-$50 book to make something is a joke. Just a bit of thread and a plain bag. Cheaper to get your own thread and different craft book, will save you in the long run

This is a good, basic guide to crafting. The instructions are clear and the pictures are beautiful. I liked the use of felt. I'm not sure it has enough substance for a more experienced crafter but it's a great place to start.

A gift I was given for Christmas, that went along with my sewing machine and craft resources: this book offers great tutorials and necessity's for the home making world.
