Create: A Girl’s Guide to DIY, Doodles & Design is 140 pages of creativity. It is probably most appropriate for an early teen girl, maybe 9 – 13. The crafts are a little complex for young fingers and the “doodles” are certainly grown-up-type coloring. But for the right age group I think this book would be thrilling.
It offers crafts made with everthing from simple fabric scraps to colorfully-printed duct tape. They are the sort of practical decorations that a young girl loves like a flowered mirror frame, blue jean tote bag or fabric scrap flip flops. And I didn’t see any materials that would be very expensive at all – in fact most could be found around any home.
Zondervan, the publisher of Create: A Girl’s Guide to DIY, Doodles & Design, supplied a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.
