Pretty Little… {REVIEW + GIVEAWAY}

The “Pretty Little” series of books from Lark Crafts are just delightful and I’ve been lucky enough to have a little look through Pretty Little Presents, Pretty Little Cozies, Pretty Little Patchwork and Pretty Little Potholders


Have a look at the end of this post for your chance to win one of these Pretty Little Books...




If books can be classed as fun, these surely are it! They’re packed full of cute little projects to create and are perfect for just about any sewing skill level. Beginners will get a lot out of this book with well explained terms and skills and more advanced sewists will enjoy creating fun projects for themselves, or to give to friends and
family.

I personally think that young/new crafters will absolutely love the projects within these books. They are fun, with bright photos and fun fabrics. They’re contemporary, practical and a good first step into the the sewing, crafting, quilting world.

Each book has an introductory chapter with detailed instructions and diagrams of the skills required within the projects. It covers everything from fabric types and selection to the tools (ie. Sewing Machine, types of needles etc) .


Pretty Little Guide


The only draw back I find with these books is that templates need enlarging. I'm probably just being lazy, but I am a fan of templates which don’t need any extra work. Honestly though, as most of us have printer/photocopiers at home, this really isn’t a major problem.


Pretty Little - Projects

Next time you’re book shopping for yourself or for a dear one, pick up one of the “Pretty Little” books. They’re quite affordable and make a wonderful addition to any craft book library. The most difficult decision will be which book to buy… and then which project to work on first!

The Pretty Little book series is available from Booktopia and Can Do Books.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Would you like to win one of the Pretty Little books? Just have a look at the top picture and tell me which book (from those four) you would like to win.

If you’re on Facebook, pop on over to my Samelia’s Mum page (and find the post with this same image) for a second chance to win. I’ll choose a winner on Sunday night (AEDST) and post it out next week.
