Violet Mackerel loves to make things - especially SMALL things. Let Violet show you how to make some of her favourite SMALL THINGS: SMALL THINGS to WEAR, SMALL THINGS to USE and SMALL THINGS to GIVE.
Packed full of crafty ideas and lots of thinking outside the square! All of the fun and SMALL things Violet shows you how to make can easily be created with things you have at home! Make small things to wear, like personalised wrist warmers; small things to use, like a chest of matchbox drawers. There are also small things to give to other people, like pencil toppers and gift tags.
Each activity has step by step easy to read instructions and photographs. The ‘Thinking outside the square’ sections give extra ideas for each project such as alternate materials, or turning rings into brooches or crowns into door handle decorations. Violet Mackerel is excellent at thinking outside the square, and she often has very important ideas…great traits to encourage in our small people.

Not only are the projects doable for the younger set, they are actually really gorgeous. It’s a joy to see unique ideas in a craft world that’s generally so repetitive. Beautifully laid-out and designed, with excellent production values and a hardy cover, this is what mini-crafters dream of. Just gorgeous.
