Product description

Sewing is the new shopping! In these cash-strapped times it's more fun to get together with friends and stitch something handmade and special, whether for yourself or a friend, than to go out and spend that hard-earned money - plus to be given a gift that someone has created and spent time making is always heart-warming. Following the huge success of Make!, Cath Kidston has now put together a treasure trove of fabulous simple sewing projects for stitchers to get their needles into. Included in this fantastic book are full instructions for over 40 fun and useful projects - bags, cushions, quilts and many more ideas - which are all designed to be made with her popular printed fabrics. All the sewing techniques featured are clearly explained in an introductory section so that even an absolute beginner can be sure of success, together with details of how to embroider, applique and adorn your items in other ways. This brilliant little book has stunning photographs, a colourful contemporary design and step-by-step illustrations to make all the projects absolutely clear and user-friendly. The package also contains a pattern sheet, templates and an exclusive Cath Kidston Needlecase.
