    Informative book

    Because I love making flowers I loved the idea of felting old sweaters and cutting out beautiful flowers. There are so many projects in this book that I want to try and I know I will. The instructions and illustrations are excellent.

    Great Book

    This is a great book if you're into this type of thing. Good explanations, good directions, good pictures etc. Not only does it give you good examples it gets your mind going to think of variation on their themes. Great craft book!

    Inspiration mostly

    Lots of great photos, but definately geared for teens and young 20-somethings. Only so many step by step projects that were truly different from each other.

    Not really good

    I bought this book expecting a fun,crafty book with lots of crafts that turned sweaters into something other than a shirt. I was disapointed.very. Half( actually more,lots more than half )of the book is shrugs and ugly purses. There is maybe 1 or 2 things that I would might make. I don't reccomend it.
