Review

From creating silk-painted scarves with white glue and dyes; to using
the same household white glue in blob form for brooches, bracelets, and
earrings; through origami earrings of fish—in How to Make Great Stuff
to Wear there are many innovative and fun things for both adults and
children to make.

Each project is broken down into “goal,” “materials,”
“preparation,” “instructions,” and possible “variations” of
end product, and each has many useful line drawings. (Finished goods are
not depicted exactly in the drawings, so that doers do not copy but
rather create their own.) Even the project names are fun (e.g., “Mad
Hatter,” “Super Visor,” Playful Patches.”)

Wallace, an award-winning watercolor painter and silk artist, knows a
lot about creativity and play. For 15 years she has taught crafts to
adults and children at the Haliburton School of Fine Art.
