Don't be taken in...,
This review is from: Homemade Gifts Vintage Style (Hardcover)
OK, no bones about it, this is a beautifully photographed book but that is as far as it goes.
The instructions are woeful... fill your teacups with eggs but no instructions on how to colour or paint the eggs, let alone how to blow them through. The comment about covering a jar of shop bought jam with a remnant of fabric and claiming you had made it... priceless. My absolute fave is sticking china plates to ribbon and hanging them on the wall... even I know that in a fight between glue and gravity, gravity will be the winner and your bone china plate the loser.
In all honesty, this is a pretty coffee table book to look at some well executed pics but this is not a craft book and frankly should not be in the craft section.
Deeply, deeply disappointing... not even worth reserving at the library :(
