Found 5th Oct 2011
I bought one of these for my twin daughters who're right into all things Cath Kidston. When we realised that it comes with all of the materials needed to make your own Cath Kidston bag (shown on cover) I had to get another to keep the little mites happy. Hopefully once they've done that they'll get on with some of the forty or so other Cath Kidston projects in the book - a high quality bargain at £5.89 delivered from Amazon.

Back in stock at Amazon. Also available from Play.com (thank you to miapops for pointing this out) for those who use Quidco or TCB:

Product Description:
Sewing is the new shopping. In these cash-strapped times it's more fun to get together with friends and stitch something handmade and special, whether for yourself or a friend, than to go out and spend that hard-earned money - plus to be given a gift that someone has created and spent time making is always heart-warming. Following the huge success of last year's MAKE!, Cath Kidston has now put together a treasure trove of fabulous simple projects for stitchers to get their needles into - bags, clothes, soft toys and many more - and all designed to be made with her popular printed fabrics. As an inspirational kick-start, Cath is giving away with the book a length of a unique fabric specially printed for the book, together with handles, a label and button to make up into a bag. The book itself is packed with 41 projects with full instructions to make a range of fun and useful things, from a drawstring washbag to a knitting needle case. All the sewing techniques are clearly explained in an introductory section so that even an absolute beginner can be sure of success, together with details of how to embroider, applique and adorn your items in other ways. Stunning photographs, colourful contemporary design and step-by-step pictures make everything absolutely clear and user-friendly. The book also contains a large pattern sheet with cut-out templates.

Yes, even the all important Cath Kidston label! - My girls were joking about sewing that into their school blazers
In that case this is SUPER HOT! Even at the RRP of £15 this would be worth it, well if your bag turns out ok, as Cath Kidston bags sell for £30 anyways. Thanks for posting this, bought 2 - they make really good 'stylish & different' presents
Great find, not long bought my daughter a new Brother sewing machine and this will come in handy for it. Heat added
Wow! That's a fantastic price, thank you for posting.
Thank you x
Thanks - just got one for my Mum x
Brilliant ordered thanks
Bought one to give the missus an excuse to use the increasingly dusty sewing machine
Thanks - just ordered one for me..
Love the fact that Amazon still has the "I would like to see this on Kindle" bit at the bottom of the page - how then do you get the material for the bag!
Thank you, better than in the K Kidston store down the road! Brill!
This is a very naive question, I'm aware, but do you need a sewing machine to complete this?

Don't know, sorry, sewing's not my forte. I expect it could be done by hand, but that for longer straighter sections a machine is probably easier/neater, depending on your sewing ability. I expect some of our fellow HUKDers might be able to assist further.
Ordered one for her who must me obeyed.

If you're still thinking about getting the Sew! book, I would recommend a … If you're still thinking about getting the Sew! book, I would recommend a sewing machine - the projects do actually give you a list of what equipment you will need and the majority do list a sewing machine. There are a few smaller projects that you can do without - for example, a small stuffed toy and covered coat hanger.



Just ordered 2 of these, thanks
