MiniEco: A Craft Book by Kate Lilley is so much fun! Kate’s blog, also named MiniEco, is consistently filled with fantastic craft projects and ideas and the aesthetic is so bright and colorful. The book is no different, the projects are extremely fun and varied.
I love how many different types of crafts this book encompasses, some are more simple little ideas while others are more in depth with patterns. Each project’s skill level is rated with stars to show the difficulty.
The fuse bead projects in this book are what made me go and buy a huge tub of them, I really want to make these candleholders. Kate has some really great projects to make a child’s craft toy into a fun and sophisticated accessory.
There are quite a few paper crafts, but there are a good selection of other things as well. There are sewing patterns, macrame, Hama beads, jewelry making, fabric dying, and some other fun crafts. I really like that some of the skills are combined to create additional projects, like these geometric beads being used again in a macrame project. It creates a piece with a different feel to it and also shows off the versatility of the skills.
If you are looking for a fun and interesting craft book packed with fresh ideas, MiniEco is a great book. And stop by the MiniEco blog for even more great projects.
