I have tons of crafts books, I love looking up ideas online, but I have never seen a book like this. Craft books have had to step things up because of pinterest and other digital means of DIY sources- this book has faced that challenge and proves the superiority of pages over a screen. Every page is beautiful and exciting to leaf through- I will honestly try most of these ideas. I have not been this inspired in a long time!! Thank you, Lena Corwin!

This is an amazing craft book! I have followed most of these designers for years and am so inspired by their aesthetic and taste. The projects here are lovely, interesting and inspiring. Some of the projects chosen by the different designers surprised me -such a variety...all beautiful. I looked forward to receiving my preorder of this book and was not the least bit disappointed. I am planning to keep busy all winter with these projects- sewing, knitting, soap making, printing, jewelry making, dying, weaving and crocheting. There are lots of detailed instructions and pictures showing detailed progress. I think you will be inspired to try something new!

Most of the projects are simple - almost too simple. Many of them I had seen before on tv or in magazines. But I will say there were a few that I will use - maybe 3-5. The rest of the projects, well I will probably give the book away after a while..

Good quality printing and photos.

This is, simply put, a book of beginner projects for a wide variety of craft types. It is a really great way for a person who likes working with their hands to branch out and try some new crafts; who knows, maybe you'll really like soap making (or weaving, or dyeing, or jewelry making, or rug making, or print making, etc.) Sometimes the first project you make in a new craft is disappointing, but these projects are clearly-written and are all modern useful items.

However, if you aren't looking to try a totally new craft and are already very accomplished in most of the book's crafts, you may find this book redundant..

Some of the crafts and art forms covered in this book are technical and I wouldn't try them. I know Batik, and found a serious error (don't "wring out" your cloth when removing it from the dye, it will ruin your project) in the instructions, which leads me to believe there may be errors in the instructions of other projects as well. Also, some of the additions seemed to be "filler" rather than interesting possibilities of something to make. There are some well presented instructions of interesting and plausible projects, however, and I bought this book for a crafty friend because I thought it would help her with making her Christmas gifts.

If you are always interested in creating something with your hands, this book has some great ideas and it is lovely to look at as well as
inspiring. I would go through the table of contents first--to be sure that you are interested in doing these projects. It can keep you making
things for several months!

What a fun book!! This book is great for those wishing to expand their "craftiness". It is clearly a book designed to "get your feet wet" into many different techniques. Of course, there are projects I wouldn't do, such as knitting socks or sewing a child's shirt, but there are plenty of others I found fascinating enough to try. The book is very well rounded with lots of crafts represented. Most of the projects are beginner friendly and give you enough information to expand and create your own designs. Some require several tools and materials that may be hard to find in rural areas (like mine!) but there are enough simple projects to work on until you can find or order materials for the rest!!

For crafters (or would-be crafters) seeking to branch out from their usual medium, this book contains a treasure trove of projects. Most of them are simple, many of them are charming, and all are laid out clearly with carefully worded instructions.

The projects included cover rotary printing, screen printing, machine sewing, hand sewing, knitting, crochet, tea dyeing, tie-dyeing, batik, marbling, appliqué, soap making, fabric painting, rag rugs (crocheted and braided), embroidery, fabric origami, brass and silk jewelry making, beading, candle making, weaving, stuffed toy making, and basketry coiling. That's a lot to pack into one book, but Corwin does a fabulous job orchestrating and unifying them.

The projects are all set out in 3 - 8 steps, just right for a beginner. But even an experienced knitter might be tempted to craft a hedgehog cat toy (ask me how I know), and I imagine the same might be said for Sian Keegan's stuffed radish toys. What a wonderful overview of many things you can make by hand!

I received a review copy of this book--see the full review on the Kangath Knits blog.
