Well, a while ago I had my eye on this little book and a few people who already had it kind of put me off it, so I left well alone. Recently though, I was reliably informed that it was half price on amazon (£7.48) so I thought why not just go for it, if it is rubbish I can (palm if off on some poor soul) kindly pass it on to someone.
I was not expecting what I got to be honest, I am not sure what I expected but this wasn't it. If I had actually picked it up and looked through it before now I would have bought it at full price (well, probably ~ I'm a bit tight and hate to pay full price for anything).
There is a range of ideas of things to make in there, loads and loads of them in a similar vein to the Tilda books. I have the Sew Pretty Homestyle Tilda book which I really do love, but there are not too many practical things to make in there in my opinion, there are only so many spooky angels one girl needs. This Sew Book however is more up my street.
All of the patterns are given with the book on a huge gridded A1 sheet of paper, which is brill!
So, here it is all made up, its been through the washer already trying to 'shabby' it up a bit, but I am pleased with it and might give it an outing later today. Be warned though it is quite dinky (about 8inches high by about 12 inches wide), I think the photos are deceiving.
Anyone else made the bag from this book?
