There are also helpful tips and lots of ideas for alternative projects and customizing what you’ve made.


Stylishly designed, the book incorporates digitally rendered illustrations of the steps for each accessory and the materials needed, while fashion-mag-worthy photographs show off the completed products. It's a hip little guide to handmade fashion.
