About the Author

Cat Wei is an architect, interior designer, television host, design consultant, and an inspiringly creative person, with a full resume of design-related jobs and projects. After receiving her BachelorÆs of Environmental Design degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Cat moved back to the northeast, and into New York City to earn her Master's of Architecture degree from Columbia University. While in graduate school, Cat worked for such high-profile firms as Agrest and Gandelsonas, and Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill. Upon graduation, Cat honed her interior design skills at several boutique design firms, including UT (a.k.a. Richardson Sakeki), the firm that is best known for the Bliss and Skinklinic spas. Cat kept attuned to the architecture world, by teaching architecture studio at the New York Institute of Technology.

In January 2004, Cat joined the cast of "Trading Spaces Family" as a designer, and recently finished filming "SheÆs Moving In" for the WE Network. As co-host of "Material Girls" on the DIY Network, Cat showcases her craftiness as a member of the "seam team" by demonstrating to the homeowner and the viewers how to completely transform a home, using fabric. Cat lives in New York City with her husband, Joel, and her miniature dachshund, Duke.

Format: Paperback
Was really excited to receive this book as a gift as I was told it was a fantastic reference book for the kitschy crafts I like to make. First off, it has some great projects inside. I esp. like the bear rug and image transfer pillows. The reason why I'm giving it 4 stars is for the authors err when allowing guest crafter/artists to throw in some of usual craft projects one would find on HGTV or DIY. For example: The rope waste basket. Overplayed and frankly, quite lame. All and all, a few crappy projects are not going to deter me from being inspired by the others.

This is a gift for the older teen in my family who is so artistic and crafty and thinks she is interested in interior design as a career. The ideas are hip and fun and achievable!

really cute ideas. this book is for teens or twentysomethings, maybe a little too 'cute' for a mature sewer.which is the reason i am not giving it five stars.still,i found the ideas,like the take on the bear throw...a great idea for the many young children in my extended family.it can be made from scraps and would make a sweet gift. and there are other projects just as creative. so the book is worth the money because it will work for the young, or the young at heart.

I'm really in love with this book. The projects are very original and are great for those like me, who enjoy decorating and interior design. So many projects out these days are for wearable art. This book gives ideas on new supplies and materials- some of which I haven't thought of. My favorite projects are the Royal Transfer Pillows, Candy Coated Toile Bench, Psychedelic Decoupage Plates. The directions are easy to follow and the materials listed are easily obtained. A++++++ :)

these projects are so fun! everything is made out of fabric but the techniques are sew and no-sew which makes the instructions really unique. definitely lots of interesting ways to use fabric and lots of ideas for home decorating!
