Make It Yours: A Book Review

Yellow Owl Workshop's Make It Yours // by Christine Schmidt

This how-to book is adorable! I wasn't sure what to expect before it arrived because I've ordered some similar books and been disappointed with the lack of details and small size. This book exceeded my expectations.

There are many projects, ranging from creating simple monogrammed note cards to stamping fabric for a quilt (and pillows) to how to add fun details to leather clutches to even creating designs on cookies. Some of the projects are easier than others, and each project has a difficulty assigned to it to help the reader understand what they're getting into before beginning. The variety of projects is fabulous. I wasn't interested in each one, but enough of them that I find this book a valuable tool.

As far as the instructions on how to create any stamps, I found the book informative. It wasn't overly informative, so if you learn by having someone show you by example (and don't necessarily learn by reading instructions), I could see the book being a bit of struggle. However, I think there's enough detail to get you started, especially with the simple stamping.

Overall, I really liked this book!
