More About the Author

It was a visit to an exhibition of historical embroidery which began to evoke the notion of a career in textiles. After studying for a degree in weaving and embroidery at De Montford University in the UK, Amy began what was to become 12 years as a professional in-house Designer, and subsequently Design Manager, creating counted cross stitch, tapestry and embroidery kits for a major UK craft kit manufacturer. As the product range diversified, Amy began to engage in designing kits encompassing paper crafts, patchwork, soft toys and rag dolls. It was the transition of fabrics and embroidery from 2D to 3D which captured her imagination the most, and after a family relocation, an opportunity arose to begin following this new path.

'Lucykate Crafts...', Amy's business name, began as a channel for new ideas and has grown into a busy and resourceful blog amongst the online crafting community.

Amy's Softie designs are showcased here in addition to features in many crafting magazines and books both in the UK and USA. Amy lives in a small village within the county of Rutland, United Kingdom, with her portrait painter husband and their 2 children.

Format: Paperback
The beauty of this craft book lies not just in its recipe for "Sparkle and shine playdough", or its "Pebble Pals", or the " Cute as a button necklace", but it is much deeper. It brilliance of it is where it calls out to parents and children alike: pick me up!!! Be creative!! Get messy! Don't stress! Making Stuff For Kids will bring parents and kids or kids and other kids together in order to create-and with their own hands make something to enjoy.

Making Stuff For Kids, is a complete child's craft book, divided into helpful (age appropriate) sections: teeny talents, cunning crafters, super sills, and tough cookies. This way you will know if your child, or even if you are in way over your creative head. The beginning includes a section of how to's: how to knit, how to do appliqué, papier mache, pompoms and sewing- just in case you, as a parent need to learn or refresh your skillz right along side your child.

The book is composed of craft ideas by contributors, I believe causing Making Stuff For Kids to break away from the traditional nerdy-kid-craft-mold(and parents wondering: what do I do with THIS mold) to a more interesting and involved crafting, where kids are really creating stuff that they are interested in! The creativity level is pretty alarming so beware!!!

So far we have only had a chance to do several of the crafts- as my children are a little young, and things can get crazy while crafting (they are ages 2 and 4 and there are already some really fun projects for them in this book!!) We have done (and loved) the Pebble Pals (p.51), the Peg People (p. 52), The Scratch it and see (p. 53) and the potatoes for T! (p. 64). Next on our list (it has actually been the craft my 4 yr.

Want to have fun with your children and lack imagination and creativity? This is exactly the book you need. It's fun and -mostly- easy to do, and has lots of pictures and drawings explaining it in detail. Have fun!
