    A great book!!

    If you enjoy doing a variety of crafts this is one for you!! Using common household items along with left over fabric you can create the most amazing baskets. Great for creating a basket for a child to put toys into. Soft any easy to move.

    Love this Book!

    What a great little book! I have always wondered how these projects were made and now not only do I know how they do it, I can do it too! I read this book many times before I got all my materials together. I couldn't wait to start. Having never done anything like this, I have already made two plates to cover my lazy susans and a bread basket to match! It even shows you how to make matching lids and handles. I already feel like a pro. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas next year! I highly recommend this book for anyone with a sewing machine.

    Love to try new things

    I bought this book because I saw it at a quilting shop up north and they had also made a bowl to display with the book. When I got home I wished I would have purchased it. The first item I made was a round placement and that was easy. I tried a round bowl next and that also proved easy. What I liked the best was that you didn't have to go out and buy a bunch of stuff, if you sew or quilt you will already have what you need, except the clothesline. When you find a brand of clothesline you like, keep it, write on the wrapper where you bought it from too. It's easier if you run out and have to buy more, get the same brand. There is a difference.
