First up is patch, a great book for simple patchwork projects. I have used this book many times.
The child's pentagon ball pattern is one that I return to time and time again. Making them for gifts and for selling at the craft fairs I attended, they were a real hit.
My second choice is sew, a great book containing simple sewing patterns. A fun book which again I have used often to make gifts and more recently some little bags I use for storage.
I love this fabric, the colours are so vibrant yet still go with all the pastels she is renowned for.
Choice number 3 is make . The cover is such a delight with the beautiful floral pattern that is such a popular choice for her vintage style kitchen wear. This is the book I used when I trimmed towels, both mine and my daughters bathrooms. I trimmed towels for all the grandchildren to personalize them and enhance a plain towel into something quite special.
I did use several variations of the pattern, including sewing the duck fabric to towels as well as the cowboy fabric and the circus fabric.
Choice number 4 was a gift from my daughter Amie sometime ago and has been used to make toppers for present using the tree pattern, it was also adapted to make cards. Strangely enough all of the material are included with the book to make 12 ornaments and yet have not been used. That gives me something to think about for this year.
Finally my choice for book number 5 is rag doll, a book that my husband bought for me whilst on the way to the Isle of Lewis. We had stopped for lunch at Baxter's shopping centre and there it was on a shelf willing me to look at it which of course I did.
I adore the doll and have made it twice with variations on the clothes, incidentally the book contains patterns for several outfits. What is quite strange is that yet again I haven't used the kit which was included in the pack.
I do have a couple more but will share them with you another time. This is a five on Friday post so I am once again joining in with Amy over at Love Made My Home, why not pop over and take a look.
Hope you have a great weekend, see you soon.
