Top Customer Reviews
1. The book is small enough to be put into any bag and take anywhere. (Not to mention the price for 6 awesome patterns!)
2. Drew's pictures and instructions are crystal clear and anyone with the "basics" of crochet and the ability to "learn" should be able to do them all with ease. (After reading the patterns, I feel quite confident that I can make them all and I consider myself to be "semi" intermediate.)
3. His use of "locally" found yarns is imperative for most, esp. when considering cost and accessibility.
I know eventually I will make them all, but will start either with the hobo or the swirl bag.
Thanks so much Drew! Love the book, love the bags!
The pages in the back under General Instructions are excellent for any skill level. The instructions for unique/new stitches and embellishments found in each particular book are clear, concise and easy to follow.
What I love is you can follow the instructions as they are and create something beautiful that looks just as presented. You can also use the stitch pattern once you understand how it creates a particular look and create/modify for your own new works. Making these books a source of inspiration for new projects.
The only thing I would add to this particular book is a section in the back for General Instructions on lining the bags. I was surprised there wasn't even a mention of lining the bags. I think for those that may not sew, those just learning and exploring, this would be a very welcome addition. It may also get more people interested in this book, those that sew but don't crochet, yet.
These books are great for adult with child projects too.
