This book is fantastic. I saw the author on the local news and she seemed brillant, crafty and fabulously fun. The ideas are easy to do and adorable. A great gift for mom and baby!

an update: my 9 year old daughter and I just made a new twin fleece patchwork blanket from the book. It is adorable, she LOVES it, and we had fun making it together. (She also made 2 pillows for her bed). We also decorated a lamps with buttons and trim, per another craft project. My 7 year old son and I made 4 sports themed fleece no-sew pillows. It is very cool that the older kids can do these projects independently as well. Very easy to follow and great ideas. We are going to do picture frames next.

I just got my "Crafty Mama" book and I LOVE it! There are tons of totally simple, affordable "looks-like-I-spent-20-hours-and-a-zillion-dollars" (but I DIDN'T!) craft projects I can't wait to get started on. Plus the writing is hilarious, the instructions are crystal clear and the pictures are totally inspiring! This book is a MUST BUY for any grandma, mama or auntie of a toddler or baby!

I love the projects in this book! I'm a novice (ok, terrible) crafter yet I was able to create these projects flawlessly and they turned out great... and I was able to make tons of great gifts (some for myself!) for super cheap. I definitely recommend this book.

I've already bought this book for two other friends because it makes a very uncrafty mama like me into an oohs and ahs mom around the neighborhood. I've got people asking where things are from and I'm proud to say "I made it!" Easy instructions, great crafts and a must have for any mom (or dad).

Awful book. The projects are silly and look like something a child would make. It could be a great kid's craft book, but to market it towards mothers is rather insulting. Looked though it and promptly tossed in the goodwill pile.

I am SOOOOOO not-crafty, but I LOVE things with my baby's picture on it. ANYTHING with my baby's picture on it!!!! So I envy all of those people who have cute personalized bags, t-shirts, mugs with their kids' pics! This book makes it so even I, the NON-CRAFTY MOM, can have super-cute personalized stuff for me AND super-cute home-made stuff for my kid!!! And the author is funny to boot, so the projects are all a lot of fun! I would recommend for all moms of little-ones, crafty or not, who just want adorable, personalized stuff!

I got this book after seeing the author on a news show. She was so freaking cute I wanted to fold her up and put her in my pocket. Then I got the book which is even cuter. It's so well written, the projects are adorable and the best part is that the crafts are EASY. (I mean, what mom, no matter how crafty, can devote doing a project that takes longer than 2 hours?) The creativeness of this book and the obvious love that the author has for crafts (and kids!) comes through on every page. I just found my staple baby shower gift!

I took a class with Abby, the author, which was phenomenal. Her creativity is AMAZING and her projects are unbelievably simple and fun to create, yet are extremely useful/practical and beautiful. I am so excited to buy the book and see what new and fabulous ideas she has come up with!
