I saw this book while browsing in a book store and had to have it. It has beautiful illustrations and easy to understand instructions. In the instructions she encourages you to use your ideas instead of blindly following steps 1 2 3 etc. These wonderful baskets are easy and fun and limited only by your own imagination. Thanks to this book I've used my own creative ideas more than any other crafts I've done. Two thumbs up!!
These baskets are easy and lots of fun to make .The author's step-by-step directions and excellent photographs of the process make it simple to learn . Great book if you love both textiles and baskets (bowls etc).
What a great way to use up scraps & I have many! I would recommend this book as second book on this craft. I purchased "It's a Wrap" by Susan Breier as my introduction & it proved very instructional for a novice. Both books encourage you to explore your own creativity once you know the basics. The main expense is for the clothesline which can be ordered online or found in hardware or other stores. I use mainly the soft line or cord that my machine can go through; I don't trust myself yet to try the plastic cord as one of this books suggestions. Another method shown here is coiling by hand which I will try soon, but now I must get back to the basket waiting patiently on my machine!
Lots of innovative techniques that I am anxious to try. Gives the basket maker (I work in fabrics) freedom to try all sorts of things. Thank you!
I was expecting more from this book, and felt disappointed (one from its contents, and two from the condition of it when received - smelled musty). I have another coiled fabric book, and it is heads above this one.
