"Gee, I wish I would have thought of that" is the kind of response that British stylist-textile firm owner Strutt evokes with her simple, ingenuous approach to creating decorative accessories from, virtually, nothing. Few directions litter the path to finishing the 30 projects showcased; instead, the author relies on a combination of illustrations and photographs, with a few sentences, to depict the how-tos. Don't expect either templates or precise lists of materials; this is strictly for the thrifty, using up scraps and handy household items. So scalloped shelf edging must redeploy leftover wallpaper with colored duct tape. And a two-dimensional plaid teddy bear is close to a naive portrait of this childhood favorite. Easy, quick, memorable items for house and garden. Barbara JacobsCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
