I love this book! The onus is on simple, fresh, modern looking useful objects... and CHEEPLY which makes a change for craft books. I've only attempted the smaller projects, but the large beanbag on the cover is my next big project! There is a really helpful introduction which translates to all handmade projects, and handy hints and ideas though-out the book! I recommend this book for anyone who wants to freshen up their student halls/house or even if you're not a student or a grad, perfect if you want to decorate your home! I'm going to be using some of the patterns back home! You'll be addicted!
