So, it's no surprise that her adorable book character, Violet Mackerel, has inherited the same handmade gene, with this absolutely delightful book for creative types.
Like to make small things? I certainly do--and Violet shares some truly divine little projects kids will simply adore.
Something for your hair, perhaps? Or a miniature chest of drawers to be filled with teensy treasures? Or a dangly day counter to mark the days to a special event?
Not only are the projects doable for the younger set, they are actually really gorgeous. It's a joy to see unique ideas in a craft world that's generally so repetitive.
Beautifully laid-out and designed, with excellent production values and a hardy cover, this is what mini-crafters dream of. Just gorgeous.
