Book Review - Cath Kidson SEW!

I couldn't believe my luck when I walked into the book store and saw it sitting there. The next book in the series of Cath Kidson craft books - SEW! You just have to love the vintagy feel these projects have :)

I particularly loved this one because it came complete with all the fabric, patterns, buttons and a label to make the bag that appeared on the front
cover - a bit of a challenge.

Not been one to ever make things fit particularly well I took my time and followed the instructions and hey presto - one Cath Kidson bag complete!

In fact I liked it so much I made some more and altered it a bit as it had no lining to start with ;)

The patterns inside this book are simple enough for a beginner sewer, like myself to give a go and the results are stunning. It is of course a great deal dependent on fabric choice - and you can't find that as easily in a book. But if you want to try some effective, basic ideas which look a million dollars then this book is great.

Now I also have STITCH! Another Cath Kidson book to keep me busy!

  1. My teen has both these books and loves them too! Isn't the little bag cute? I can't wait to see your next project from the book. :)
