OMG, how cute are these projects? 12 Aug. 2010
By Jill S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved Simply Sublime Bags, but this book is even more up my alley, since I'm not a big sewer (though there are plenty of sewing projects if you are). I like that every project is rated for difficulty/time, and many rely on cleverness as much as craftiness--eg, nothing could be easier than the baby onesie personalized with a "Hello My Name Is" transfer--but how adorable a baby gift is that?! There are easy but elegant hand towels, fabric note cards, the adorable chamois Jammies and that amazing Wonder Bread apron on the cover--lots of great ideas for me to make for Christmas gifts that look sophisticated or adorable, but don't scream "handmade" or "cutesy-crafty." Fun things for crafty tweens and teens to do, too.

Iron on this and that 18 Sept. 2010
By Gillian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was deeply disappointed with this book which relies on iron-on transfers or computer printout art to produce the adult equivalent of kindergarden craft. Tha pretty apron on the cover is made by ironing plastic bag packaging from a brand-name product onto plain white fabric. The "chammy jammies" are made with what I would call yellow dusters.... 100% guarenteed to shrink and to turn an entire wash bright yellow. How popular will you be then???

This book will be useless to me and my daughter. I rarely write a reveiw, but the glowing reveiws of this book are far off the mark, imho.

Buy this book..your gift recipients will be glad you did! 15 Aug. 2010
By Fit Foodie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I received this as a gift and immediately decided that I needed to log on and buy a couple more to give as gifts myself. Simply Sublime Gifts makes you feel good from the moment you lay eyes on it. It excudes warmth, whimsy and style in a very non-threatening away. Initially I thought a few of the projects were a little intimidating because I don't really sew. In fact, I've been known to ask my husband to sew on the random lost button :). However, I was quickly taken in by all the projects I knew I could do with ease! The projects are the perfect level of challenge without being overwhelming. The author makes you feel like you're hanging out with her in a cozy retro kitchen with your craft supplies strewn over the kitchen table as she warmly takes you step by step through these awesome crafty adventures with a heavy dose of humor and fun! My first project was the duct tape belt that I made with my 12 year old fact we made 3 different ones while we were at it! My 75 year old mother glanced at the book (pretty enough for the coffee table by the way)and said she wanted to make the handtowels to make as a hostess gift for an upcoming dinner party she was going to. My younger daughter chose the shrinky dink type necklaces to make as favors for her upcoming 11 birthday. Although i received this as a gift, it is clear to me that it is a purchse that would quickly pay for itself. Let's face it, times are still a little tough..if I can purchase a gorgeous book that allows me to make quick, classy gifts for $10 or less (over and over again)its money very well spent! Have fun!!!

NOT for a real crafter 10 Oct. 2010
By S. C. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading all the glowing reviews for this book, I decided to treat myself in hopes that it would have ideas for some gifts for the upcoming holiday season. I wish I had treated myself to something else.

This book is NOT for crafty people, it's for people who don't have a creative bone in their bodies. If you really are crafty, you've probably already come up with 90% of these gift "ideas" on your own, as a teenager.

Sachets made of dish towels? Done that. In Junior High. Fabric glued to card stock to make your own cards? Done that, and have even had KIDS do it. Seriously, about the only original project idea in this book is the wonder bread apron on the cover, and maybe the Christmas stockings made of oil cloth, but seriously, who wants a PLASTIC stocking anyway?

The other major downer with this book is that about 80% of the projects require you to buy expensive specialty supplies, such as printable fabric sheets, iron on vinyl, and even silicone cupcake wrappers (about $10 each in my neck of the woods. Ouch.)

If you are adept with scissors and glue, but are unable to come up with any kind of creative idea of your own, this book might be for you. If you have ever made up your own project, save your money. I wish I had.

Totally awesome and clever! 12 Aug. 2010
By North Hollywood Dottie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had been waiting for this book -- I LOVED the author's first book, SIMPLY SUBLIME BAGS, which provided me and my daughter many fun and innovative projects -- and this book is even better! I don't know how the author comes up with these ideas. Dare I say she's a genius? Well, at least a craft and creative superstar. I've already made 3 projects in the first 2 days of having the book. (I'm going to be giving the fabric cans for the holidays, so watch out friends and family!) There are so many projects -- and each one is better than the next. The directions are really clear -- so far it's one of the best...if not the best!...craft book I have (and I have them all). Thank you.
