I borrowed from the library before buyig and won't buy as it is an old book rejigged - how many times can a book be republished under a slightly different guise? Read the book description and you will find it is adapted from Homemade - first published in 2009. You can find instructions to make something unique - not to be confused with making something new.

I bought a collection of "home-made" books just to get busy and also perhaps start on some home-made gifts.

I bought this book as it looked nice and was relatively cheap. And that is just the value what I got out of this book.

It contains only one or two okayprojects. Most are too simple and too old-fashioned. Please be aware of quite a few typing errors in it as well.

Perhaps a book for the really basic beginner but I would invest in a more expensive book. This was just not for me.
