Book review: Sew la Tea Do

After very much enjoying Pip Lincolne's last book Meet me at Mike's I was rather excited to get my craft loving hands on her latest offering. Just like her previous book, Sew La Tea Do is filled with tons of quirky ideas for anyone who loves making. From dresses, to quit covers, baby booties and cookies there are plenty of quirky ideas to please any budding contemporary crafter!
The first thing that caught my eye about this book is the cute and quirky vintage styling. The heavyweight matt finish pages reveal pretty home decor montages. This breaks up the flow of the book so it's not just full of patterns, but also offers inspiration on how to display your own homemade treasures. Each project is clearly explained and easy to follow and comes with a full sized pattern. You get a huge pouch at the front filled with patterns meaning you don't have to faff about enlarging them on a photocopier and it's also great value for money.
My favorite idea has to be the fox quilt cover and I can't wait to get started on it. This book is not only beautiful to touch, it's beautiful to look at, with each page you turn you'll be truly inspired to get making.

//Sew La Tea Do is published by Hardie Grant and priced £17.99
