Sometimes I just don't have the time 
to make a fully handmade gift.
This book is the ideal solutions.

The book doesn't just show you how
to add embellishments to clothing it also
shows you how to edge blankets, pillows
& aprons.
You could use the techniques on gifts for any age.

The brilliant thing I love about the book is
you actually get the hooks so that as soon
as you've got the book, bought your yarn,
you can get straight into making things.

The book starts from scratch and takes you
through everything from preparing your fabric
to how to crochet on the edge.

You don't need to pre-punch fabrics,
the hooks are designed to go through fabric.

The book takes you step-by-step through
each of the edges and then at the back of
the book you get different projects
to use the skills you have learned.

There is also a stitch guide at the back of the
book to help you with any stitches you are
struggling with.

There is a good mix of traditional and more
up to date designs.
They just give what ever you make or give
that extra little something special.

I'm learning to quilt and I love the idea
of being able to bring my favorite craft crochet
into my quilting.
I can't wait to finish it and give that little extra
touch of me in my first make :-)

I received this book to review.
