I know it's crazy to buy a book for a single pattern, but that's what I did: when I saw the adorable felted Dracula Candy Bowl I simply had to have it. I'm happy to say that this little book is full of creative, easy family projects all oriented toward Halloween.

Having a Halloween party? once you've seen the PB & J skull sandwiches and the cupcake graveyard, your menu will take shape. Need to embellish yourself or somebody else for trick-or-treating? the tulle and lace tutu is too cute for words, and so are the creative jewelry projects, especially the vampire bite necklace and spider earrings. And oh, the ruby slippers! a pair of dressy shoes, spray glue and red glitter...it's a fashion statement every woman should make at least once in her life.

The book is well laid out and the projects use readily available materials and ingredients. Most require adult skills or at least supervision, but you can truly turn the kids loose on a few of them.

My only negative comment about "Witch Craft" is that the typeface is very small, and some hints and tips are in a positively minuscule font or set against a colored background. For many of the projects the directions are fairly general so it's OK, but I'm going to have to copy and enlarge the line-by-line knitting directions for the Dracula bowl. Not an insurmountable problem, but worth noting.

Linda Bulger, 2010

I love this exciting new book from Quirk books called: Witch Craft: Wicked Accessories, Creepy-Cute Toys, Magical Treats, and More! The book is authored by Margaret McGuire and Alicia Kachmar. It takes crafters and bloggers from all over and puts them into one place for you to see their inventive creations. There are many crafts in this book; from authors as well as Etsy shop owners, and other experts. It is such a treat to be able to not only see the adorable creations they made, but in this book, they even teach you how to make them yourself! In Quirk's fun style, they also have little Halloween illustrations throughout the book, which make it extra visually entertaining.

They have a wonderful selection of crafting ideas from adorable Halloween Mary Jane shoes to poison apple plushies. There is also a vampire bite necklace for all you Twi lovers; as well as decorations and food fun! Projects range from the uber simple (tangerine jack o'lanterns) to the more advanced (the cutest little crocheted witch you've ever seen!). There are fun bios about each crafter at the end of the book. If you want to make your Halloween extra special, this book is a great way to help you do so. Your children and guests will always remember those extra special touches you put into the holidays that show how much you care about them.

I like that they finely brought out crafts in my style. If you are not in to crafting and witches do not get this book. If you are then this is the book for you. There are some awsome project that I look forward to doing and doesn't seem to have stuff that is exspensive or hard to get. Most of the items I already have here at my house. I love this book and if you are a crafty witch like me I think you would enjoy it as much as I do!

This is a small craft book, but a fun one and one I am happy I bought. There are knitting, crochet, sewing, beading, cooking and "general" craft projects. I particularly liked the Plushie Poison Apples you make from felt.

But, I do agree with Linda Bulger's point that the typeface is too small. I don't yet have to photocopy and enlarge any of the text, but I can certainly understand where I might have to do so in the not too distant future.

I would also have liked more step-by-step instructions and photos and the addition of project difficulty ratings. I think these would help people not overly familiar with a particular craft. For example, on the Apples they assume you know how to determine the seam allowance they want used on sewing the apple segments together and how to sew rounded items without puckers or stretching the item out of shape. I have been sewing for years so this doesn't cause me any problem, but someone not familiar with sewing may have difficulty.

On the knitting and crochet items there is no tutorial on the stitches used. I haven't crocheted in years, but can probably figure out the Creepy Crocheted Bones after review one of my old crochet books or finding an online tutorial, but the Good Little Witch looks to be out of my league. Same with the Dracula's Candy Bowl. I have never knitted and even if I find another source for a knitting "how-to" I don't know if this project is feasible for a novice. Having difficulty ratings on the crafts would help people determine if they are at a skill level capable of completing a project.

But, the above reasons are not why I didn't give this review 5 stars.
