Reviews

February 2015 This is a whimsical collection that provides exactly what it says on the cover. Christa Rolf's lifelong love of fabrics and lace is evident in the love with which she's constructed and presented these projects. There are some practical yet beautiful items to craft, such as pincushions, pinboards and placemats, and others which are purely decorative such as a delightful patterned 'cake' and a chain of hearts that would brighten up any 'shabby chic' mantelpiece. There's a simple but very refined looking yp-yo quilt pattern that will be of particular interest to Popular Patchwork readers, and whilst making that it would be a good idea to go for the matching filled pillow design too. The projects are all graded 'Quick and easy' 'Requires a little practise' and 'More challenging', but we can't spot anything that would be too tricky with patience. If lovely pastel pinks and blues are appealing to you, you won't be able to resist this book. * Popular Patchwork * November 2014 If you know of the Love to Sew series of books you'll know what fantastic quality they are. The book is jam packed full of beautiful designs for every level of sewer. The vintage-style is amazingly beautiful. It's just so elegant. There are so many different items you'll love and they can bring the style to each room in your house. This beautiful basket could be used anywhere around your house. Even this glimpse of the items available in this book gives you a hint at the different beautiful items you could make. I think they would also make the most beautiful gifts for friends or family. Or if you know someone that loves to sew why not buy the book for Christmas for them The instructions are really easy to follow. They are clear and easy to understand. With projects for all levels I would highly recommend this book. If you love the vintage-style you'll love this book. * Crochet Addict UK * November 2014 We love the designs in this delightful book each project is accompanied by beautiful photography, step-by-step instructions and full-size templates making them perfect for the absolute beginner as well as the more experienced sewer who may be looking for some vintage inspiration. * Hot Brands, Cool Places *
