* Craft Books for Christmas

Posted on December 27th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.


Good haul of craft books for Christmas. One sister got me a pile of thrifted craft books. There are some really good ones (in a good way), my favorite being Storybook Favorites in Cross Stitch by Gillian Souter, and some more good ones (in a bad way) like The Great Pantyhose Crafts Book by Ed and Stevie Baldwin. There are a few vintage sewing books, too. If I’m quick, I might try to cross stitch something from the Storybook Favorites one for my neice’s birthday. My other sister got me Altered Art, a neat sort of collage-y book. Then, my sister in law sent me Knit One, Felt Too by Kathleen Taylor. It’s really really good. I like a bunch of the projects: some felted Christmas tree ornaments that are just in a picture at the front, a cloche, earmuffs, mittens, slipper socks, a trivet, all sorts of stuff. It’s a really good reference, too. I’ve seen a few felted items on the web that I might try to recreate, and there’s also a section on needle felting.
