Tiny Book, Good Ideas Feb 5, 2008
This book is really small in stature, which I didn't expect. As the title says "crafting on the go", it now makes sense to be small. Actual size (when closed) is 5.25" x 7.25". This is too small for me to really work with. Some patterns even cross over both pages, leaving an area of no-man's land in your pattern from the book crease.
It definetly has some cute ideas, but overall I don't really think this book will be used much. Patterns/ideas included are simple construction for a beginner. Here is a list of some of the patterns in the book: -small lunch bag/gift bag -party hat -baby blocks -pumpkin -pillows -Christmas stocking -slippers -coasters
There are more than what is listed above.
I give this a 3 star because it seems more like a book on how to add appliques. I was looking for more, I guess. And I am really turned off by the size (as I said above).
I am so pleased with this book! Jul 23, 2005
I am just starting to get into this kind of stuff and this is the perfect book to give you wonderful ideas. I love it!
