Friday book review
"The Crafter's Companion" edited by Anna Torborg
This book is one of my favourite reads when I need a little inspiration to get me crafting again. Each of the contributors have written about why they create and what inspires them as well as including a pattern for a sewing project. Most of the projects included are quite simple and are meant to give you a starting point for your own creativity. Even though all the projects have very clear and well written instructions I have yet to make any of them.
What keeps me coming back to this book are the beautiful photos of the creative spaces of the contributors as well as the photos of the beautiful things that they create. There are contributions from some very well known bloggers in here including Amy Karol from angrychicken, Cassi Griffin from belladia, Heidi Kenney from mypapercrane, Hillary Lang from weewonderfuls, Lyn Roberts from mollychicken and tons of others.
This is a really lovely book and a great introduction to a host of beautiful craft blogs that are well worth paying a visit to.
