Yesterday the delightful Cath Kidston launched her new Sewing Book, called just that. To tease us further she signed copies at the flagship Piccadilly Circus shop and oh my what I would have given to have been there. Regardless of missing out, the book is still something to look forward to. In true Cath style it is filled with an abundance of florals, beautiful photos and a mix of fun projects. I wouldn't mind a copy of this in my Christmas stocking this year (hint hint). Let me know if you get this beautiful book as I would love to hear your thoughts.
Here is some more info...
Step-by-step illustrations and templates for all 30 projects make this a perfect book for sewing novices as well as enthusiasts. As an inspirational kick-start, Cath Kidston is giving away all the materials to make the cover project — a pocket sewing kit — in a unique fabric specially printed for the book. Templates are included, all the sewing techniques are clearly explained and each project is paired with hand-drawn, step-by-step illustrations and beautiful photography, so that even an absolute beginner can be sure of success. There are stitching shortcuts for the time-pressed, take-it-further guides, and, for the more adventurous stitcher, a guide to experimenting with a range of fabrics from cotton and oilcloth to flannel, silk and linen.
"Five years on from our first sewing book, I wanted to follow up the huge success of Sew! with a very modern sewing book: practical, accessible, bright and fun, with a breadth of projects that felt versatile and relevant for today." — Cath Kidston
