Coats Crafts, £7.99, 7+

It’s the promise of the “sparkle” that provides the biggest pull in this book that contains delicate flowers with pearlised beading and lace petals, pretty peg-dolls bedecked in outfits ranging from theatrical and bridal to a vocational nurse and a very quirky little hat contraption called “the fascinator” that looks like it has been fashioned out of a kitchen scourer. A fun little book that’s packed full of inspiration.
