Craft Book Review – Folklore Crafts: Garden Gnomes and Matryoshka

It is my craftastic pleasure to be reviewing (and giving away- see the entry instructions below!) two craft books that are chock full of totally cute projects. Folklore Crafts: Garden Gnomes and Folklore Crafts: Matryoshka.

Both books have a bakers dozen of how-tos, and what I love is that the projects are simple and quick. If you’re a beginner, the projects aren’t too intimidating. I’ve never tried needle felting, but these adorable little dolls make me want to try it out:

Likewise, for the crafts I’m more comfortable with, I’m inspired to add my own little twists. For instance, I’m just itching to stitch up a batch of these little cuties, and maybe throw in a lady friend or two:

Better make it 3 so there aren’t any gnome fights!

One of my personal favorites is the Dr. Who nesting dolls project. I love the idea of a non-traditional set of nesting dolls, because it would make the perfect personalized gift for almost anyone… just take some of their favorite things, and paint the dolls to fit!
