There is nothing more special than making
things for Christmas.
The brilliant thing with this book is even
if you've never used the techniques before
you don't have to worry as everything
is taken step-by-step.
This even includes showing you how to use a
sewing machine.
It's brilliant for kids and adults alike
as everything is written and photographed
so it's easy to understand and easy to follow.

You do need different tools and materials
to make each of the projects but
they are items that most crafters will
have and use anyway.

You will be amazed at the amount of detail
and pictures there are to help you to
make each project.

There is so much covered in this book
and the projects are really varied;

Sweet Deer Pillow
Fabric-Wrapped Gift
Felt Forest Tree Skirt
Festive Holiday Crown
Santa and His Helpers Barrette
Neon Tree Forest
Totally Joyful Joy Banner
Stenciled Advent Calendar
Woodland Mushroom Wreath
Mistletoe Felt Wreath
Holiday Dream Catcher
Stitchy Striped Christmas Stocking
Peaceful Dove Pincushion
Pom-Pom Poinsettia Magnet
Sweet Felt Cutout Ornament
Wordy Art Noel
Holiday Menagerie Animal Ornaments

It's clearly marked at the start of the book
which projects don't need a sewing machine
to make them. 
It also tells you which projects can be made out
of paper instead.
You also see what level you need to make the project.
For example the Wordy Art Noel
doesn't need a sewing machine, there is a paper option
and it's easy peasy to make.

The book includes the templates you will need
to make the projects.
The smaller ones are within the project pages
and the larger ones are at the back of the book.

My favorite has to be the "Peaceful Dove Pincushion".
I personally thing it's one that can decorate
your house all year round.
I'm going to make one to go on my crafting table.

The projects are varied and are enjoyable to make.
I love the different mediums used
and the varied items you can make.
