Overview

Shirley Botsford's glorious book is packed with over 30 functional and keepsake projects. Included are full-size patterns, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, plus inspiration, ideas, tips and techniques to create even more.

Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
The ultimate recycling craft that, if done well, actually doesn't look like a recycling effort. Designer Botsford, inspired by the memory of her late father's ties, shows a passel of ways to use neck gear, from simple scarves to a complicated three-piece woman's suit. Her more than 30 designs include pouf purse, head gear, a teddy bear, Christmas ornaments, lamp shades, and, of course, the ubiquitous pillows and quilts. Instructions are clear (though somewhat telescoped in terms of space); color photographs showcase the finished objects.

This book is what I was hoping for. However I got the e-book version and could not print off or see the templates that were supposed to be there. I guess that is the cost of getting ebook instead of a hardcover.
