Book Nook: Craft Books from Ryland Peters

I recently had the chance to review some of Ryland Peters new craft publications. My daughter and I really enjoyed them. We found the books easy to follow, good for both novices and those with a little experience, but also containing some projects that would be "stretch" projects for after we're better. The photos clearly show ideas, but the directions leave room for creativity as well, so that no two person's handmade creations will be identical.

You can find the full selection of craft books here ; the ones I had a chance to see (and loved) are below.

Simple Chic Knits by Karen Miller and Susan Ritchie : Karen Miller and Susan Ritchie, of online yarn store Mrs Moon, bring you stitch-by-stitch proof that it can be super-simple to create modern-casual knitted clothes, accessories, and homeware.

Sewing Dress Up by Emma Hardy : If you want to add to your dressing-up box without spending a fortune, Emma Hardy has designed 35 magical costumes that will satisfy every child. There are ideas here that are easy to make and much more effective than shop-bought outfits.

Macrame Jewelry and Accessories by Lucy Hopping : Macramé is back! In this book, Lucy Hopping has created a project for every mood and outfit. There are chic and simple rings, a sequin headband perfect for a night out, wedding or festival, a clutch bag and a quirky removable collar to brighten up a plain tee or dress for work or a date - each one will add a unique, hand-made touch to your wardrobe.
