One of the perks of having a crafty sewing blog is that I get asked to review things every so often. Recently I was delighted to review Sewing For Boys, and today I get to share another wonderful book with you, Microcrafts, published by Quirk Books.
Microcrafts is a gem of a book, compiled by several talented women, including Margaret McGuire, Alicia Kachmar, and Katie Hatz. What they have created is a craft book that is beautiful to look at. It’s full of fun and tiny projects with step by step instructions. I have not seen anything like it. This book is so much fun!

This looks like a mini solar system. Wouldn’t it be a great homeschool project?
Microcrafts contains 25 tiny crafts to make at home, everything you need to know about the supplies and techniques needed to make them, a resources page, and even ideas for modifying the crafts. I have to say, I love everything about this book. It is so well put together and looks so amazing. Abby and I have dog-eared several of the projects. What a fun way to spend time together!
