Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Exquisitely designed and beautifully photographed, Fabric Crafts by Zelda Grant contains 15 surprisingly simple projects--surprising because the book is so lushly produced that at a glance the objects seem far more elaborate than they really are. In fact, more experienced crafters will probably wish the author had included a few more challenging projects, like the wonderful wall hangings and tote bags showcased in the "idea gallery." Novice crafters, however, will find a wealth of inspiration here. Sewing phobics can glue their way to lovely items like a leopard-print frame adorned with feathers and buttons, an elephant-safari lamp shade, a Far East fabric-covered journal, or an African mud cloth box. And even those with only the most minimal sewing skills can manage projects such as the pieced Caribbean Sky pillow or the rubber-stamped tropical fish table linens. As the project titles make evident, the book has a pleasing fusion-style flavor, and it lives up to the author's promise that this is a "conversation in creativity." --Amy Handy

From Booklist

The not-so-booming economy and the advent of the winter gifting season are just two factors calling for homemade presents. Anyone at any age and at any level of talent can follow Grant's painstakingly careful directions for fashioning 15 items from fabrics. There's a choice of sew or nonsew, projects falling into the latter category being attached to surfaces by glue. Neither method demands a great deal of expertise or time; a zebra-stripe shadow box might consume an afternoon, and a moon-and-stars drawstring bag can be stitched in an hour or two. Color photographs documenting each step and an idea gallery ensure that technique and creativity are not ignored. Templates included. Barbara Jacobs

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The ideas presented in this book are excellent, & the instructions & photos are outstanding. I am giving several of the ideas a try, & I'm confident I'll have great results based on the instructions.
I wish I knew where she got some of the fabrics. I've also shopped at second hand stores, flea markets & yard sales, but haven't found any of the beautiful fabrics used here.
I'd recommend this one for beginner through advanced. Yes, it's that easy!
