5.0 out of 5 stars hand crafted bridal accessories 14 Jan 2013
By Alyson
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is definitely worth buying. It has fabulous projects ranging from a tiara, gloves, shoe clips, a most gorgeous wrap and even a veil ... and so much more. The projects can be adapted for other occasions with just a little imagination. The instructions are easy to follow even for a beginner like me. It gives useful information on what tools you will need to achieve the finished products and helpful information on material types etc. If there are any more books like this I will definitely be getting them. Cant wait to get started!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile 23 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this as a second hand via Amazon marketplace and had to wait for it to come from overseas. To be fair, I didn't expect a great deal from it, hence going for a second hand copy. I thought it would be a happy little aide memoir on my craft shelf. I was wrong. It has some lovely tips and ideas that I will certainly be delving into and spreading across a multitude of crafting projects. Don't expect to be blown away with rocket science skill sets. Do expect to be able to turn something bland into something a little more special and grand looking with simple technique.

Honestly, I'm no newcomer to such crafts, yet I'm still glad to have added this one to my shelf and know it will do far more than gather dust!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Little Disappointing 10 Sep 2009
By Diane Dickson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter is getting married next spring and I was hoping to find some unique ideas and get some inspiration. But, in my daughter's case, there was virtually nothing a older 20's something would like. The styles were very traditional and not particularly distinctive.

Most of the general information on sewing techniques (both hand and machine) were pretty basic. I'd say if you were an intermediate sewer you probably already know much of this info. But, if you less experienced with "dressy" fabrics (satins, lace, etc.), this book would be very informational or a good refresher of techniques you might have forgotten. Good illustrations with pictures and descriptions.

You could also use these ideas for a "renewal of vows" ceremony or a special anniversary.

Best of success with your Bridal sewing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice wedding-idea book w/Great possibilities! 20 Feb 2008
By A. J. Reis - Published on Amazon.com
I just received this book, and upon looking it over, I'm SO excited to get started making beautiful wedding accessories. The projects look very easy and classy, while also appearing to be cost effective (to make rather than buy already made) and creative.

Perhaps you won't use every craft just as it's pictured, but you'll probably either create something VERY close to it or you'll come up with something perfect for your special day by the crafts offered.

If you want to add YOUR special touch to your wedding, then I recommend this book to help you achieve that goal!

This book gave us some ideas and we added our own creativity to them. It was fun using this book as a guideline.
1.0 out of 5 stars Lame. 4 Jan 2013
By J. Becker - Published on Amazon.com
I don't own this book. For a REASON. There are only about 10 projects, and all are lame lame lame. If you are completely inexperienced with sewing or crafting for weddings, maybe this would show you how to do something like embellish your shoes or pantyhose (shows its age), but I recommend you save the cash and find an online tutorial instead, free of charge. If you have ANY experience or have looked online, this will teach you nothing. I've gotten better project ideas from the little free handouts at Michael's and Joann's in the wedding aisles. Other projects include putting lace on your gloves, making a REALLY tacky pillow, and a lace covered keepsake box. Don't waste your time or money. If you MUST check this out before dismissing it, check your local library and save the postage on returning it...
