Author(s): Cath Kidston
Three of Cath Kidston's bestselling books are now available, for the first time, in a special presentation slipcase, creating the ultimate craft gift that will keep busy hands occupied for hours. This trio of craft titles offers ideas and instructions for over 100 projects, including sewing, patchwork, cross stitch and needlepoint projects, all in Cath Kidston's signature style. And very excitingly, this set of three books is accompanied by all the fabric required to make the specially designed shoulder bag in the same 'Blossom' print first seen in Sew! but now given away in an exclusive stone colourway.
