Author(s): Jane Foster
15 creative projects to make with children from popular designer Jane Foster. Creative Craft With Kids is the second book from up-and-coming designer Jane Foster and includes fun projects for parents to make with and for children to encourage creativity and experimentation. Using fabulous fabrics and papers from her own enviable collection, Jane, who is a former teacher, demonstrates how to cut, sew and stick with your children to create bold, colourful games, toys and accessories for your child's bedroom or play room. Whether you've got stacks of vintage fabric or papers or prefer to buy new designs, or even print your own, this book is packed with practical and inspirational ideas. Projects such as felt-faced toys, customized T-shirts and a patchwork quilt will need some simple sewing skills, but there are also no-sew projects including covered matchboxes to hide precious trinkets in, simple printing projects, and paper bunting. With bright colours and friendly animal motifs, Jane's fun and easy-going approach to her work shines through in each of the 15 projects. Word count: 25,000
