1.0 out of 5 stars By far the worst craft book I've ever bought, 26 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought this recently I was so disappointed with the content - it was a total waste of money. The projects are the sorts of things my twelve year old daughters were making at school some fifteen years ago. And as for wrapping coloured thread around a stick, I'm flabbergasted it even made it into print! To be fair the bath salts recipe is nice and making the tea cup candles is well described, but these are hardly new ideas. This book may be OK for absolute beginners but I do not recommend it to anyone aspiring to make beautiful hand made gifts. This book will go on the back shelf and I doubt will ever be opened again. If you are looking for inspiration for crafting I can highly recommend "Rediscovered Treasures" or for original & pretty sewing projects "Sew Pretty Homestyle", both of which I've bought recently and am highly delighted with.
