Product description

"The Crafty Kid shows just how easy it is to make irresistible items both for and with children, from recycled or inexpensive materials. Written especially for those who want to hand-make their own beautiful gifts, and to steep children in the creative life from an early age, The Crafty Kid is full of fun, simple ideas for rainy-day entertainment and passes on the sensible adage: make do and mend. Including more than 50 projects, from cotton book bags, super-cute felt egg cosies to deliciously soft lambs' wool cushions and practical picnic blankets, The Crafty Kid offers new ways of looking at the treasures within our own homes, thrift stores and local flea markets, inspiring you to make gorgeous, functional items for every aspect of a child's life."
