SEE UPDATE BELOW!
Grandma loves to knit and crochet and really, really likes having her patterns right there on her iPad so there's no more having to print off the pattern. Sarah Holmes' Crochet Rag Rugs Household Pattern Collection (How to Make a Rag Rug) includes patterns for ten different household projects that include placemats, chair cushions, a three piece bathroom set, a Christmas tree skirt and three different baskets made by crocheting over rope. I saw one of those recently at a home furnishings store for more than $50!
The book does have a couple of formatting issues. The picture that Sarah includes inserts itself smack-dab in the middle of the quantity of rag strips necessary more than once, so you'll need to watch for that. An interactive Table of Contents that interfaced correctly with the Kindle Navigation Menu would be a really nice addition too.
You know, Grandma seems to remember an awful lot of sewing scraps in the quilting stash. One of those baskets would be really nice in her new apartment. You might find something marvelous here too.
Recommended - or maybe not.
UPDATE: A reader wrote to me a few minutes ago asking if I had noticed the price of more than $14 for this book. No, I did not. For some reason I thought this was in the typical $0.99-1.99 range one sees for this sort of kindled book. Grandma would be hard pressed to pay $14+ for ANY book that contained a mere 10 crochet patterns, never mind one as poorly formatted as this one. The pictures aren't even big enough to get an accurate picture of just how the various items look and there are no basic directions about cutting & joining strips at all.
Frankly, that made me take a second look at Crochet Rag Rugs. I visited the website Sarah links in the book, finding that it is located at Angelfire and is nothing more than a 1-page site offering this book and other similar products for sale. I also easily found far more detailed information about this kind of crochet than is presented here. Accordingly, I've substracted a star.
