The book is divided into the three title sections, with a good bunch of projects in each.
There are pull-out patterns included, as well as a handy tips section for things you might need to know. And there are a few cute projects for sure:
It's supposed to be a brooch, but wouldn't that be a great package topper for a gift to a crafty friend? Or maybe a Christmas tree ornament?
This pin cushion truck is super adorbs, but with my luck it would roll off the table and I'd be stepping on pins for weeks. It makes for a cute decoration, though, especially in the right toy truck.
And this stuffed reindeer head I find...interesting. Much better than the real thing... Definitely has some cute Christmas potential.
And now here's the part I hate to write. Would I recommend this book? I can't say that I would. If you're on Pinterest you'll have seen some version of almost every one of these projects or could come up with them yourself. I honestly found a lot of these projects to be...not so inspiring. You can find instructions for any of these things by googling, and I think that's what irks me a little. I really dislike saying something negative about someone else's work, especially something they've put a lot of effort into. But I also dislike books that present content that isn't really that original. I received my copy at no charge, but others will pay for it and without the benefit of an in-person perusal I fear they'd be sorely disappointed.
I can't say that this book doesn't have a place. If you're just getting into crafting (or know someone who is) and you're looking for simple projects in a variety of craft forms then this book would be great to help you discover your niche. It's very pretty, nicely organized, and doesn't require materials that you'll never be able to find. It's a great jumping-off book, but if you made the crafty leap a while ago you might want to pass this one up.
