Publishers Weekly Review

Australian author Muldoon gathers a selection of 52 crafts, one for each Sunday of the year. Explaining the origins of her family's crafting tradition, Muldoon explains, "The projects needed to be short enough to keep a toddler's attention... and simple enough so the day remained a joy rather than became a chore." The book covers basic stitches and other techniques, then shows readers how to create felt food items (like a fried egg), a denim shoulder bag, and clothespin dolls, among many more. Instructions are aimed at adults, but Muldoon explains how she involved her daughter, Lotte, who appears in several of the accompanying photos. All ages. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
