Art and craft is my hobby and passion that I do in my spare time. It helps my mind in peace and make it more creative. This book has covered 300 plus ideas including jewellery design, soap and candle making and other fragrances which have blown out my mind. I am super excited about getting this book which has enhanced and polished my skills further and helped me in understanding more about the tools required for each craft work. It has facilitated me in doing my hobby in a more organized way regarding its different aspects such as quilting, knitting, sewing, painting, etc. and provided me with useful tips and tricks in each section. I liked how easy and stepwise Susan has described each craft such as drawstring bag, fabric covered bins, lampshade which added extra beauty to my room and Fabric Heating Pad which is most effective one for my muscular pain. The book has beautifully described the household stuff that we need on a daily basis like quilt cover, pillow cover, oven mitt etc. which has helped me in saving a few quids. It has provided some fun-loving crafts for kids as well like play mat to make that can help them in boosting their mind and creativity. Thank you for writing this amazing book.
‘Crafting’ by Susan Hollister is a very inspirational book full of many ideas. I love variety of crafting style and pattern. My favourite is picture frame that can be hanging, so it is nice to decorate them as you wish using ribbons, fabrics, buttons or crochet. I also admire colourful wall hangings like Eye of God made from yarn in bright colours. I am also big fan of knitting so I like tips and links how to improve your skills. Also very important for me is homemade jewellery like seashell pendant or painted stones that you can wear or just hanging on the wall. Susan reminds me about my favourite activities when I was a child like preparing scrapbooks with my secrets and pictures. I enjoy ‘Crafting’ and can recommend it to everyone who is looking for new hobby.
Crafting by Susan Hollister is wonderful. The title says 300 ideas and the ideas and suggestions are so original. It is divided up into types of craft and the first section has 25 ideas for using fabric. It goes through, painting, scrapbooking, salt dough,jewellery and crafts made with tape which was completely new to me. The ideas were original and inspiring and I have already decorated several plant pots and made a hessian tote bag.. This is a comprehensive book of ideas and is excellent.
Although it's a bit basic it could've been a good book for beginners BUT, there's no step by step photos or images & hardly any pictures of the finished product. I found this book to be a bit of a disappointment, I also thought that some projects were added simply as filler & were only a variation of a previous item.
