Gr 9 Up- This compact book has colorful photos and an upbeat design that is sure to appeal to teens. It is packed with 50 creative projects, including personal beauty products, clothing, and crafts. A lively foreword discusses techniques (stitching by hand), basic equipment, and where to find materials (craft store, large discount store, health food store, grocery store). It also explains how projects are divided according to difficulty. Varied typefaces, great use of color choices, sharp photos, a meticulous layout, and terrific projects make this book a winner. All projects can be completed in two to nine steps, illustrated with photos. Clothing includes skirts, "boys of the week" panties, tanks, halters, scarves, T-shirts, and more. Jewelry crafts use baubles, beads, a key, ribbon, and buttons. This title will be a good addition to collections in which Sherri Haab and Michelle Haab's Dangles and Bangles (Watson-Guptill, 2005) is popular.-Augusta R.
