5.0 out of 5 stars I'll save the planet and save a fortune 9 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have so enjoyed this book and it has really got me hooked onto re-using things I would otherwise throw away! Who knew what you could do with old bits of fabric or loo paper tubes? I will save a fortune on Christmas presents (and cards!) and save the planet too! A fantastic find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make It and Mend It 26 Nov 2012
I love this book. From the bored domestic goddess brainwashed from an early age, to the domestically challenged - they will all find something useful, something fun, or something to do on a rainy afternoon. One of the great things about this book is almost everything you need for the projects you will already have on hand and does not require items found only on a wild goose chase(ie glue, scissors, newspaper). The written directions are succinct and the illustrations clear. This is not a book that will sit on a shelf to be pulled out and only used occasionally. No, it will become tea stained, pages glued accidentally together, and when doing the gardening projects, bits of earth will find their way into the crevices of the binding - as you will want to work your way through this fun book project by project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book and great present 6 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is such a good book. I bought it as a present for a friend but couldn't bring myself to part with it, so had to buy another! I'm not very practical yet it provided a great mix of ideas that even I could manage, and plenty of new things to try. A really good buy.

Some brilliant ideas for re-using all sorts of things that would normally find their way to the bin. Definitely worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas sorted! 11 Nov 2012
By Mitch
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A wonderful book, packed with great ideas for making the most of what you've already got. I'm not a crafter, but this book wasn't scary (as some craft books can be) and I understood every word - but I nearly lost my copy to a friend who IS a crafter, and who found all sorts of new ideas in it. It's a pretty good book that shows a quilt, for instance, which inspired both a lifelong quilter and a novice, with instructions that both of us understood.

It's also a really good-looking book, nicely divided into seasons and festivals, and I'm back on Amazon to order more copies as Christmas gifts! For the unlucky ones who don't get a copy, I'll be sending home-made cards and small gifts packed in handmade gift boxes (yes, straight from the pages of my new best friend!)Make It and Mend It

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking book full of great suggestions 7 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a true inspiration for me. I normally can't wait to chuck stuff out but there is no need anymore.

Its a revelation in making things so easy to (re)use. After many years of buying loads of stuff from Amazon (lots now binned) this book has moved me to write a review and I don't do that lightly.

Just go and buy it

Thank you
