A great gift for your favorite crafter...

...because they will never be bored. There are so many techniques to try, no matter what you like to work with.

Create sophisticated looking, but easy to make projects

This is a wonderful book for someone like me who is into "everything". It is packed with projects to suit anyone's taste, spanning a wide range of crafts including paper, fabric, ceramic, glass, metal, wire and wood. Most of the over 80 projects, while beautiful and sophisticated looking, are very quick and easy to create. Conveniently, most use easy to find and inexpensive materials.Paper projects include numerous cards, a vellum circle ornament, and a multi-color layered-paper vase. In the fabric section you learn to make a hand-painted silk scarf, embossed velvet pillow, and photo-transfer lampshade. Ceramic and glass projects include etched glass coasters, stained glass napkin rings, an engraved slate frame and daisy-painted glasses. Other projects include bamboo place mats, a bistro beverage cart, a wall clock and a mosaic chime. If you're like me you'll find several things here that you have always wondered how to make and find them remarkably simple to create with this book.The instructions are step-by-step and easy-to-follow. Patterns and temples are included when necessary. There is also a great list of suppliers in the back including websites. The projects in this book make great gifts. Also, since there is so much to choose from and projects are suitable for all levels, this book would make an excellent gift for the crafter in your life as well.

Mostly quick and easy projects, so don't be afraid to give them a try!

Found Treasure

As a lifetime crafter and craft book collector, I was skeptical about this book, but I am here to tell you, it is a treasure! Techniques that I first learned as a child are transformed into quirky but sophisticated projects. Imagine my joy when a simple weaving technique that used to result in loopy potholders, combines with an even simpler material (grocery bags) to become, well, you just have to buy the book. Of course, there are also those techniques I have not yet tried, and this book's appealing vignettes convinced me that I have nothing to lose by attempting them (witness the stained glass napkin rings). During lazy days, this book is the basis of inspiration for variations on a theme. Let's face it, certain projects are just not my style, but most can be easily adapted to suit any taste. Finally, given my short attention span and limited free time, I appreciate that many of the projects can be accomplished quickly, but yet the quality of the finished product does not suffer. Thus, this book is truly contemporary.
