Booklist Review

The not-so-booming economy and the advent of the winter gifting season are just two factors calling for homemade presents. Anyone at any age and at any level of talent can follow Grant's painstakingly careful directions for fashioning 15 items from fabrics. There's a choice of sew or nonsew, projects falling into the latter category being attached to surfaces by glue. Neither method demands a great deal of expertise or time; a zebra-stripe shadow box might consume an afternoon, and a moon-and-stars drawstring bag can be stitched in an hour or two. Color photographs documenting each step and an idea gallery ensure that technique and creativity are not ignored. Templates included. --Barbara Jacobs
