I Can Make My Own Accessories: Easy-to-follow patterns to make and customize fashion accessories
Middle-school girls are dipping their toes into the fashion world and trying to develop their own styles. This book, which can help them make that leap, opens with a page showing the essentials that will be needed to make the eight projects in the book. Most of the essentials are things found around the house or easily and inexpensively obtained. The book directs readers to the back, where they will find six pages of techniques and tips needed to complete the projects, simple things like threading a needle and doing a running stitch and sewing on fasteners. The projects—a brooch, cat ears, a bag charm, a garland, a pasta necklace, a belt, a jeweled collar, and a bear bag—will be of interest to girls from second to fourth or fifth grade, but not older than that. All the instructions are clear and very complete, with traceable patterns, step-by-step instructions and drawings showing the way, and very nice photographs of the completed projects. The writing is straightforward and encouraging. This is a really good book for the crafty young fashionistas out there.
