Witch Crafts: 101 Projects for Creative Pagans
By Willow Polson; Citadel Press (Kensington Publishing Corp.)
What a delightful book. For the Witch with a crafty bent or for the one who wants to try creating for the first time, this book has something for everyone. The book boasts 12 different chapters. Each chapter focuses on a different craft, with projects ranging from the very easy to the more advanced.
Whether you are into sewing or gardening, you will find a project to please your creative urges. I think the only thing I didn’t like about this book was the fact that I couldn’t decide which project I want to start on first. In fact, I am still deciding between the Topsy-Turvy Goddess doll and the cross-stitch Green Man sweatshirt.
The directions for each project are concise and easy to follow. Patterns for those projects that require patterns are included right in the instructions, something I appreciate. Many craft books have the patterns in a separate section in the book requiring you to hunt them down. At the end of each chapter is a list of resources for any of the materials you might need for the crafts. Among the resources are names and URLs to books and websites for more information on that chapter’s focus.
The best part of the book is the 8 pages of full color photography of finished projects. The pictures are cross-referenced to the pages with the craft’s directions. I only hope that my finished pieces are as photo worthy when I finally choose my first one!
