ReadItDaddy's First Book of the Week - Week Ending 19th August 2016 - "I Can Make My Own Accessories" by Georgia Vaux and Louise Scott-Smith (Thames and Hudson)

One thing we find with the long summer holidays is that we do at least get to catch up with all the brilliant 'make and do' books we receive.
We love crafts and art, and Charlotte absolutely LOVES anything to do with fashion, so "I Can Make my Own Accessories" is an absolutely brilliant little book packed with some really fantastic projects to keep your fingers busy.
As with their previous "I Can Make Dolls Clothes" title, Georgia and Louise have hit the perfect balance of producing some really easy and effective projects that children of all ages (perhaps with a little help from an adult) can cope with, making some really attractive accessories to wear.
Each project is set out with clear instructions, and most use the sort of craft materials you'll probably already have around the house (if, like us, your busy 8 year old loves making things!)
|Time to design! Unleash your inner Gucci, baby!|
|Compliment your boring socks with some cool pom-poms! Now THAT'S a good idea!|
|Make a cool festival headband that's perfect for the summer!|
Charlotte's favourite make: Making cool bag charms and keychains for mum
Daddy's favourite make: Groovy decorated converse all star shoes!
