The rallying cry is: Don't buy; DIY. The result is hip, imaginative, crafty, and very green.
There's a basic primer on techniques - knotting, sewing, braiding, lacing - plus a full tutorial on embellishing. And then an amazing range of projects. There's fashion, of course: all-new halters and tank tops, sexy gaucho pants, a baby-doll dress, twisted shrug, and hooded scarf.
But also baby gifts: Jumper for Joy, Baby Back Bib, Wild Thing Blankie.
Home decor: plant hanger, wine cozy, toilet seat cover, ruffled apron, and Spastic Plastic (grocery tote).
Grill mitts and bolo ties for the guys, doggie tee and stuffed cat toys, a steering wheel cover for the car, the Ants Go Marching (picnic blanket), and Beach Bum (beach caddy).
Projects in this title range from the simplest no-sew to intermediate, and all have easy-to-follow illustrated directions - plus, how to throw your own Tee Party.
It is time to get your craft on.
