Paper - both affordable and universally available - is possibly the most versatile material in the crafter's kit box. In this new book in the Simple Makes series, Christine Leech demonstrates 30 original and creative ideas for lovely things to make from paper. Some of the projects are simply drawn and cut, such as the glistening, rippling fish mobile, whilst others are constructed and glued, for example a cute yet practical stationery birdhouse that holds paperclips inside and has post-it note tiles on its roof. A few slightly more advanced projects involve special techniques, such as the beginner's bookbinding method used to create the hand-bound Japanese-style notebooks, but everything is easily achievable by following the clear, step-by-step instructions and guides.

Little Sew and Sew is the perfect book for those who are interested in sewing and embroidery. The 30 original and versatile makes include 15 delightful sewing projects that range from simple bags and pretty purses to simple cotton tops and delicate detachable collars as well as 15 unique patterns for adding embroidery to the finished projects. Cleverly, the projects and patterns can be mixed and matched to create an almost inexhaustible number of combinations. Not only can the projects and patterns be used together but they can also be used on their own - makes can be left unembellished and the motifs can be applied to numerous other items that you have either made or bought. The sewing projects in Little Sew and Sew range from those suitable for the beginner to those requiring a little more skill and expertise. Showcasing many different styles of embroidery, from machine freestyle to ribbon embroidery, cross stitch and applique, all the techniques will be simple to follow due to the step-by-step instructions which are presented alongside a combination of delightful illustrations and photography. Packed full of tempting projects including a wooden handled knitting bag with ribbon flower embroidery, a sleepy sheep embroidered pillow case and a bird cage tea cosy, this new guide will prove irresistible no matter what your level of skill.
