Format: Paperback
As you would expect this is a quirky book with an eclectic range of projects. There are 50 projects in the book featuring a range of crafts from sewing, embroidery and millenary to baking, paper crafts and jewellery making. However, if you are only into sewing don't worry there are enough sewing projects for you to get your money's worth!

Projects include a Humpty Dumpty doorstop, a Cheshire cat hand warmer, Wonderland aprons and red velvet cupcakes. The book is bright and colourful with good photography, well written instructions and photos used to guide you through the making process.

There will probably be some projects in there that wouldn't interest you (I can't quite see the point of a fabric covered teapot, or fabric covered furniture myself), however there are so many projects that there are bound to be a few that you will love. I think even if you aren't a huge Alice in Wonderland fan you would still enjoy this book for its quirky projects.

Wow. I have a very extensive collection of modern craft books - well over 80 popular titles - and this one is hands down my favourite. Usually out of a craft book there is only 3 or 4 decent, unusual projects that translate well to actual everyday usage and most of those are rehashed, tired old ideas. This book is different. There's just so many projects that look good within the Alice theme but would also translate well to a different theme with a bit of tweaking and imagination. I loved the Invitation cushion which looks like a letter with a cute handcrafted stamp, and the Queen Alice bag which continues the postage stamp theme. The giant rose lights would look fab for a party and are so easy to make, and the Red King slippers are gorgeous for a baby or toddler made in the smallest size. The Wonderland apron is illustrated in three colours, my favourite is the red polka dot with the heart shaped pockets - would make a lovely birthday present along with the red velvet cupcakes (recipes are included throughout the book too!) and one of the soft drinks (again, receipes provided) in a "drink me" bottle. All the ideas are so effective but don't require loads of fancy materials, a lot of the time it's basic stuff most crafters will already have. Things like making your own cookie cutters out of foil for example. It's the book I have been waiting for, for a long time. Magical, ethereal, charming, eclectic - love it.

I fell in love with all of the amazing ideas and the diversity of them. From making cakes and how to decorate them, to making cuddly toys, doorstops and candles in teacups!

I have made a few items and I can truly say that the instructions are very simple and cater to people of all levels!

Format: Paperback
What a fantastic and creative book! The book is overflowing with crafty ideas and projects.

There are 50 projects within the book covering a wide range of crafts, all with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

The book begins with a comprehensive list of items which should be in a craft or cookery kit and will be needed to complete the projects in the book.

Everything Alice is the sort of book which you could open at any page and find a project to try: the projects all have an Alice in Wonderland theme but the projects could be adapted to other themes. There are jewellery projects, projects to make toys, ideas to embellish parties, things for around the home, needlecraft and paper craft projects.

Projects all include photographs of the finished project as well as other photographs which help to explain technique or alternative designs. Each project starts with an `ingredients' list and the technique instructions are broken down into easy, bite size steps.

There are many projects suitable for children to do - the dress-me Alice and white rabbit paper dolls, projects for children - wonderland mobiles,

There are many projects which are great ideas for gifts for family and friends: queen of hearts apron;

There are also many projects which would make the perfect tea party for a child or posh afternoon tea for ladies who lunch: vintage cake stands; Cheshire cat sandwiches; crown place cards; wonderland cookies; napkin rings to name but a few. However there are also some projects which I cannot see myself making: a fabric covered teapot being one of them.

There are lots of templates included at the back of the book which will make the projects easier to complete.
