1.0 out of 5 stars SAVE YOUR MONEY - DON'T BUY IT !!, 28 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Creative Makers: Simple Crochet (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Usually I'm a mild reviewer, few things get one star lots get ***** !!

I got this book with my daughter in mind - she's got two children and has become interested in crotchet.

It's a well bound hard back book £16.99 down to £13.59 with Amazon. The layout is good and I can't comment on the actual crotchet instructions.

More than 35 vintage-vibe projects - GREAT I thought!!

So what are they?

Apple Cosies
Egg Cosies
Crotcheted buttons for a cushion
Scalloped shelf edging
Crotcheted circles to stick on a home made iPad case
The list is endless - over 35 inspiring projects. But how about this one to top it all off ....

Frilly trim for knickers - "these really are just a bit of fun !!!!"

Well that just about caps it all but no, no and thrice times NO

A suicidal leather loose crocheted steering wheel cover where rings can get caught, fingers can be broken or torn off and it could become Exhibit A in the Crown Court case of Dangerous Driving - see page 120 for details.

Well I couldn't face giving it to my daughter - the book was tooooo embarrassing for mere words.

In my no so humble opinion this book produced by a team of experts working for Hachette/Octopus Publishing Group, is a DISASTER DARLING !!

I could be wrong, as some people appear to like it. Think seriously before spending your money on this for yourself or as a present, the lovely production does not make up for the laughable content.

Creative Makers - Simple Crotchet - Sara Sinaguglia - AVOID

That's about it - didn't like, thought it was useless - just check out the "steering wheel glove" ?
Thanks for the post G-witch :-)
