This new mini edition of Patch! encapsulates Cath Kidston s new and innovative take on traditional patchwork. Patch! combines the established techniques with a more contemporary approach to the craft. Mixing her own distinctive prints with vintage fabrics, Cath has designed over 30 original and irresistible projects including not just the pieced bedcovers that you might expect but also numerous accessories and homewares - bags, cushions, pillowcases and even a toddler s toy ball and Stanley dog.
There is wide range of techniques from simple machine piecing to more complex patchwork which makes this a wonderful book not only for beginners but also for advanced sewers. The book includes a free needle kit and 12 templates.
With clearly written instructions, explanatory diagrams and detailed colour photographs, Patch! is the worthy successor to the best-selling Make! , Sew! and Stitch!
