Lisa Stickley’s Made at Home

£16.99, published by Quadrille

I admit, I’m not hugely into sewing – even though I have a G.C.S.E in Needlework – however, this lovely new book from textile designer Lisa Stickley, offers enough to tempt me rather alot. I particularly love the unconventional-ness of the lack of capitals in the text as it gives a fresh, modern feel to the book. Another favourite feature is Lisa’s drawings, full of quirkyness with originality.

So, down to the nitty gritty, though being a non-sewing person at present I can’t give you a review on patterns and instructions, but I can say that I think the book offers a fab cross-section of easy to make homewares with how-to drawings that include cushions, a blind, a pinny, placemats and peg bag. If you love sewing or simply fancy having a go for the first time then this book is a fantastic buy.

The product images are great and well styled, and the book is nicely laid out which makes for easy reading. Another bonus is that it’s a good chunky size  – there is nothing worse than trying to follow instructions from a book that is too small…

It’s available from and all good bookshops, priced at £16.99 and published by Quadrille

  1. Looks great, Sophie, I will be sure to check it out! Thanks for the review!

  2. Great range. Her shop is in the road I lived in when I first moved to London. I think it’s a bit smarter now!
