Overview

Native American art has a timeless appeal that fascinates anyone who appreciates quality craft and design. The projects selected here are modern interpretations of traditional Native American patterns and techniques—they adopt methods, supplies, and tools that are accessible to any crafter, while encouraging an appreciation for the historical significance of this unique culture. Leather working principles are demonstrated step-by-step and used to make moccasins, pouches, and vests, and patterns are also included for more complex garments such as a Southwest Rosette Shirt and a Chippewa Inspired Beaded Jacket. Many jewelry items are also featured—from a Turtle Fetish Necklace to a Zig-Zag Ankle Bracelet. While the inspiration for these designs may be centuries old, they still remain hugely fashionable!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Leather crafting is a perennial favorite among summer campers, scout troops, and Native American craft enthusiasts. These projects for beaded leather clothing and accessories are modern interpretations inspired by designs from tribes such as the Comanche and Chippewa. The somewhat simplified patterns are attractive and easily worked by crafters with some experience. For general crafts and young adult collections.

    Native American Chic

    The designs in this book are easy but not very intricate.
    The accessability of the materials are hard to find and costly.
    I as a Native American am willing to pay that cost but for someone who is not it would not be worth it.
    The book is laid out well but would like to see a little more detail in the instructions for younger people.
