If your looking to make that ideal gift
for a baby shower then this book
will hold everything you will need.
The book consists of 21 easy crochet patterns
for you to make.


Stacey has used her fantastic designs
to concentrate on the Nursery
which the the hub of any mother and babies life.

 

I love the way the colours are bright and beautiful
and will stimulate anyone to a smile.
The designs are fun and interesting
and some can be used for around the house as well as in a nursery.


You can either make one individual item
or make a set to match.

 

You can make the designs your own by choosing
your own colour combinations.

 

Stacey hasn't left anything out within the 21 patterns there are:
beautiful blankets, entrancing mobiles, whimsical plush toys
and an ottoman and rug.
The patterns are then showcased in 3 colour stories.


Stacey talks you through everything from picking your yarn
to gauge & crochet hooks.
Everything is discussed in an easy to read manner
with helpful pictures.
So if you are a beginner crocheter you feel at ease
when you start to make your projects.


I love the way that even the finishing techniques
are shown. I know quite a lot of crochet books
forget to explain this part and it makes a huge difference to how
your finished item looks.


The thing that gets me most excited it most of the projects
don't even have to be made for baby.
I've seen quite a few blankets and cushions
that I would like to make for my house.
I also know there are a few that my son would
love to be made for him.


The patterns are in written format and are step
by step and easy to follow.


All in all I think this book is fantastic value for money.
It's one you can keep using year on year.
