Behind the scenes at Cath Kidston

Do you love Cath Kidston as much as we do? We’re such big fans of her that we’ve published two of her books, Make! and Sew!, both of which showcase a fabulous collection of projects and Cath’s cheerful, vintage-inspired fabric prints.

Check out the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look at Cath’s upcoming Spring-Summer 2013 line. And, if the video inspires you to take matters in to your own hands, check out Cath’s books below to re-create some of the looks featured in the video on your own. Projects include a range of easy-to-sew totes and bags, embroidered and appliqued cardigans, tops, and dresses, and a range of colorful homewares like pillows and blankets.

I'm an assistant editor at St. Martin's Press. I caught the crafting bug when I was little and I wouldn't let my parents leave the store without buying me a crafting kit---any crafting kit! I wove baskets, folded origami, made jewelry, and painted glass. I'm an avid, but impatient knitter, so I'm always choosing projects that I can finish over a weekend. I also love to cook and bake. When I'm not working in the office working on craft books, my weekend consists of , well...making something with my hands. I'm usually scouring whatever's fresh at the farmer's market or food co-op, trying out new recipes, and working on my latest craft project.

CAUGHT CRAFTING: SMPCraft’s Spotlight on NYC Crafting

SMPCRAFT #CAUGHTCRAFTING Thursday morning, Astoria, Queens. Accessorizing with a lovely temporary floral tattoo she learned to make from DIY Temporary Tattoos: Draw It, Print It, Ink It by Pepper Baldwin!



Father's Day is less than three weeks away -- Sunday, June 19th in the U.S. -- just enough time to start prepping for what would make dear old pops feel loved....What dad, what MAN, wouldn't want to get a bright red tool box full of homemade BBQ, bacon, and chili flavored chocolate? Or a handmade Paracord hammock? Does he play golf?--hand dipped tees? Does he like to hike? Enjoy nature and the great outdoors? How about homemade beef jerky? Or does he enjoy watching sports--Remote Control Cookie? What about beer? One of the coolest new items coming out of Japan is a Frozen Beer Slushy Maker by Kirin Ichiban that perfectly pairs with the DIY black and tan soap!
