The book is divided into 3 sections: in Brilliant Beads kids will lear n how to thread beads and buttons of all sizes, plait friendship bracelets, and create pretty pendants from wire and beads. Fabric Fashions introduces sewing and cutting skills: kids will enjoy sewing a cupcake brooch or felt flower pendant; creating a bracelet from pom poms; and making their own tassel bag charm from fabric scraps. And in Modelling Magic card and felt are used to make a funky dinosaur badge; beads, brooches and hair clips are all created from colourful clay; and belts are decorated with hand-made buttons. With easily-achievable projects to suit a whole range of abilities for children from 3 years and upwards, and with simple step-by-step instructions, children will love crafting their own jewellery creations.
