Book review - Cath Kidson Sew

Well, what can you say about Cath Kidson books! It is, as ever, beautiful.
This is the pocket sized version of the book (i got the larger one for christmas from a friend). It is filled with 40 loverly projects of all sizes, from stanley the dog, to bath hats and cushions. It comes with a little needle case to get you started and a large pattern sheet.
It has a handy introduction to all the techniques at the beginning although a little sewing knowledge is handy, and every project has the little twist that makes it 'cath kidson', although its easily adaptable to your own personal sytle if cath kidson isn't your thing. (i personally can only cope with a couple of flowers, too many and i start watering them!)
Although this is the pocket version it doesn't loose anything in the size reduction. The text is readable and the photos loose none of there clarity, and it is of course cheaper!
So if you don't have it already, this pocket version is a good buy, full of pretty projects to try you hand at or just admire!
