The one thing in the book that IS good is the websites and addresses of some really interesting fabric, bead, and feather feather supply stores. BUT there is nothing in the book I would either make or wear. Feathered purses? Bedazzled stiletto heels? A dress that is bedazzled and beaded around the waist, only wearable if you are a size 6, not to mention the weight. Cutting up old fur stoles to make slippers? And just why would you make a leather card holder that is just two pieces of leather sewn around three sides?

Easy to make leather accessories that look really good for both women and men. The instructions are straight forward and adaptable for your own creativity. I'm not crazy about the feathered goods, but that's just me. (The majority of the projects are done in leather.) It's always good to read about someone who has a dream and runs with it.
