I have another book to review today, but not a knitting book. Last month Running Press contacted me to offer me a list of crafty books for review. I chose a few, and the first one arrived this week.
This is This Belongs to Me: Cool Ways to Personalize Your Stuff by Anna Wray. It is a book of ideas and projects for kids and teens on ways to personalize their belongings, from sneakers to lampshades.
Each project uses a different technique or design style, which is explained in detail with examples. There is a blank workbook page with templates where kids can come up with and practice their own ideas, then step-by-step instructions for how to implement their original ideas, including tons of illustrations, a list of all materials needed, tips and tricks, and of course clear, easy-to-understand, illustrated directions.
This is such a fun idea and would be great, I think for kids age 9 or 10 and up. Who’d like my review copy?
