Book Summary: Making your own clothes, housewares, and other craft projects can seem so intimidating. What if you’re clumsy with scissors and can barely sew a button? How can you create your own handmade gifts—for yourself and for others—without ripping your ribbon and ruining your fabric?

With simple, easy-to-follow instructions for more than 75 beautiful garments, bags, pillows, and other fun items organized into seasonal sections, any budding artist can fashion handmade treasures. From an elegant clutch and bold beach bag for summer to a poncho and patchwork scarf for winter, from bright oven mitts and fridge magnets for autumn to wild window boxes for spring, the projects in Crafts for Every Season take every reader through the year in the most creative way possible.

With stunning photographs and innovative ideas, Crafts for Every Season will appeal to more knowledgeable crafters as well. It’s guaranteed to inspire anyone intrigued by delightful design to get home and get crafting! 

My Review:  I found this book to be interesting.  As a crafter, I never could get into sewing (unless it was on my greeting cards).  This book has made me rethink trying my hand at sewing a project.  Kelly has really great projects in this book.  She tells you supplies needed and step by step instructions for each project.  I found the instructions to be easy to follow.  
The book has more than just sewing projects in it.  It even has party ideas and even ideas to get kids started in crafting.  
The writing style is easy to follow and she makes everything in the book fun to read.  
I recommend this book if you are into crafting and looking for new project ideas for around your house or as gifts to give away.  From bibs to diaper bags,from aprons to towels, from collages to bookmarks, she has many projects.  You're bound to find something you are interested in trying your hand at!

I was given this book in return for an honest review.
