Product Description

Review

are all sorts of different crafts from tiny little felt kitty cats to polymer clay trophy deer heads, they even have some extra ickle paper pieced greeting cards with ickle envelopes for all your miniature greeting needs! .....The book is beautifully photographed and has a very clear layout with materials list and simple step-by-step instructions, which in some cases can be brief but with a little bit of common sense you will be ok. There aren t any photos of the making process or steps, just different angles of the finished product. However, there are helpful diagrams for some of the makes. The projects range from the very simple indeed to the 'might take a little bit more thought and patience'. There are tips nicely sprinkled throughout with templates and patterns where needed. ...As I read through, there were several projects that inspired me to have a go or kicked up some other ideas in my head, which I think is always a good sign for a craft book. Some of my favourite projects in the book were the Flower Pocket Pendants from Larissa Holland, the Dogs project and Monster Babies from Holly Keller, Hope Watthanahand s Spool Dolls and the super cute miniature books from Melissa Jacobson but there were plenty others that also piqued my interest! The resources included the list of authors and their websites at the back which is great, because I always like to see who folks are. There is a resources link list, mostly US-centric, and some further ideas and inspiration as well as a small glossary of terms and techniques which was full of tips for beginners. Overall I think this is a very cute book ...Crafty makes, Sept, 2011....and would make a lovely gift for someone crafty, or just for yourself! It is hardcover and has beautiful pages - I've found it is quite nice to just flick through (which everyone visiting the Cwtch has been doing too) as well as containing some incredibly cute projects. --Crafts From the Cwtch, October, 2011

This fun title shows how to make all kinds of cute petite items using various techniques, many of which can then be incorporated into jewellery! From tiny books, to polymer clay sweets and cakes, plus stitched felt pendants and fabric button earrings, there's something to appeal to everyone, all with illustrated step-by-step instructions --Make Jewellery magazine, October, 2011

Format: Hardcover
This book is full of little treasures to make. Things don't get much tinier. These guys have set out to prove that good things come in small packages. There are twenty five projects from tiny boats, creatures, jewellery and more. This is a treasury of microcrafts. Many techniques and materials are used throughout the book from bottle caps for jewellery and polymer or modelling clay to make tiny creatures. Felt is used for owls, dogs and more. The book will appeal to those who like to work in miniature and also those with a quirky nature. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

This a really nice book. I have already made some of the little things in it. I have always had a thing about tiny things so this is right up my street. I really liked the baby monsters and the tiny - smaller than your finger nail - cats. What I need now are match boxes to make little homes for them. Nice looking cover which gives no real clue as to all the tiny fun that is going on inside!

I love this book so much. I want to make everything in it. And the great thing is you can scale up as well as down, for example if you wanted to make a normal sized book you could do so from the comprehensive instructions given. Can't wait to get started... :O)

I bought this book after seeing some of the patterns on Pinterest. As usual although you get to see some pages before buying it's only a vague guide of what the rest of the content is. I found after looking through it I would make the majority of the projects in the book. I'm generally a sewer but there's a good range of projects for different skills. If you fancy the idea of making tiny tiny projects then this is definitely the book for you!
