"Sass" (disappointed reviewer below) might be full of so much crafty know-how s/he doesn't need instructions, but I'm not, & this book gave me lots of inspiration. The writers seem friendly & down-to-earth, & their instructions are well thought out. They anticipate fumbly fingers like mine, pre-empting potential problems & giving me the confidence to just mess about & make something.
Instead of starting with "go to the shop & buy x, y & z", the projects (mostly) use "ingredients" that you'll find lying around. This is especially useful when you're poverty-stricken but want to make your home look nice.
The punched tin lantern is actually lovely, casts pretty shadows on the walls & looks sort of home-made gypsyesque. A couple of the projects are a bit twee for my taste (& I agree with Sass on incompatibility of teenagers & embroidery!), but most are very attractive, modern in an uncontrived, homely way. They're not ground-breaking, per se, but they have given me ideas that I'd have never thought of alone.
