Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies
With Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies, crocheters can have their cupcakes and wear them, too. The founder of her own popular line of food-inspired fashions, Twinkie Chan has whipped up a feast of head-turning scarves, mittens, hats, and more so that her many fans can learn to make her culinary creations at home.
You'll find recipes for food-themed scarves that feature sushi, salad, gingerbread men, buttered toast, eggs and bacon, ice-cream cones, popcorn boxes, and more. You'll also learn how to make a pair of strawberry fingerless mittens, a chocolate cupcake hat complete with a cherry on top, and even a coconut-lemon cake tissue box cozy. Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies is divided into three chapters--Sweet Things, Fruits and Veggies, and Savory Stuff--and comes complete with an illustrated how-to section, lists of "ingredients" for each project, easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions, and full-color photos and illustrations. Beginning and experienced crafters alike will go wild for these quirky, colorful, wearable confections.
Released November 2nd 201
I will admit, when I added this book to my wishlist last Spring I was a little hesitant. I've encountered "wacky" craft books that turned out to be so wacky they were basically unusable in the real world. Shelf Awareness recently had a dedicated issue for this book's publisher Andrews McMeel Publishing that included a ad for Twinkie Chan that lead to her website/blog and a video featuring her making a cupcake scarf from the book. Well, I can tell you I am 1,000% sold on this book now, it seems like so so so much fun but still things you could actually wear and make for other people. I love Twinkie Chan's whole look and collection she has created. I'm excited to hopefully get this book soon!
What can't you wait for to be released?
