A Must-Have DIY Book for Girls!

I Can Male My Own Accessories

A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I’d be interested in doing a review on this craft book called I Can Make My Own Accessories (a follow-on from their super successful book I can Make Dolls’ Clothes) and I immediately knew it would be a perfect fit for my Tila, so naturally I said yes. And oh boy was I right.

The book is written by a former head of children’s wear design at Liberty of London and at Caramel Baby&Child, Louise Scott-Smith and graphic designer Georgia Vaux. It’s aimed at girls aged 7+ (I know for a fact that 34-year old ones love it as well) who wish to learn how to make their very own fashion accessories.

There are eight adorable projects super easy to make thanks to the clear and simple-to-follow step-by-step instructions and real size patterns. I also love how the book begins with the basics of sewing like how to thread a needle, sew different kinds of stitches, affix buttons etc.

Having a newborn at home plus two kids on vacation I was a little afraid I said yes a little too soon at first. I mean I love to be creative with my girl and I want to spend some quality one-on-one time with her (especially now) but these things usually take time and patience – two things I’m lacking lately. But this book was just perfect for us because the projects are truly made in no time. And even my 2-year-old Talan helped us out. 😉

In only a few days we managed to finish four projects already and I think we’ll make the rest four by the end of summer!
