Description

It is a small world, after all!

Here are step-by-step instructions for making tiny teddy bears, little ladybugs, petite porcupines, itsy-bitsy bikinis, and much, much more! Microcrafts shows crafters how to create dozens of miniature treasures, each no larger than a spool of thread. No previous crafting experience or pricey materials are necessary—just a love of all things small!

Praise For Microcrafts

“For fun and giggles.”—Associated Press

“Small-minded is not a bad thing when it comes to crafting.”— OregonLive.com

“How do you make cute crafts even cuter? By shrinking them, of course! But cuteness is only part of the appeal—these crafts also use up the random odds and ends that most crafters accumulate as part of their creative process. From tiny stuffed cats and dogs to two-inch tall greeting cards to an impossibly cute mini-solar system mobile, there's inspiration here for crafters of all types. Of course, it takes a lot of talent to work with tiny pieces of fabric, felt, clay, and paper, but with results this sweet, it's worth a try.”—Library Journal
 
“Fun guide to making all sorts of wee crafts.”—Austin American Statesman
