Lazy Crafternoon by Stella Fields

Get your craft on! Learn some basic craft secrets and be inspired.

Excellent starter book for crafters. Very simple instructions for even the most basic materials and how to use them. Includes projects for sewing, jewelry making, decoupage, home art - even party recipes and decorations.   Among other great project ideas, you'll find accessories, a headband, dressing up a phone case, your headphones, cheap sunglasses and even your shoes! My favorites are the faux stained glass, ribbon wreath and glass charms.

I think the book would benefit by showing step-by-step illustrations for a few of the projects. I'm not sure how long some of the items will last, but if you're using inexpensive items, you won't mind throwing them away after they wear.
