Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
* [STARRED REVIEW] "There are books that are carefully orchestrated to hop on the "green crafts" bandwagon, and there are books like this one: a thoughtful, intelligent work that discusses how everyday crafters can make environmentally responsible choices. The projects are fun and varied." (Library Journal, December 2009)

There are books that are carefully orchestrated to hop on the "green crafts" bandwagon, and there are books like this one: a thoughtful, intelligent work that discusses how everyday crafters can make environmentally responsible choices while creating works of art. The projects, which include items made from sustainable or recycled fibers, are fun and varied.
