In 2009, tastemaker and bestselling author Lena Corwin turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began hosting classes for local crafters. In Lena Corwin's Made by Hand, she re-creates and builds upon her popular workshop series in order to reach crafters in Brooklyn and beyond. For this "best of collection, she has chosen expert teachers and her favorite projects: Jenny Gordy introduces us to knitted socks and elegantly sewn tops and dresses; Cal Patch teaches how to make a modern embroidery sampler as well as a braided rag rug; and Corwin herself presents her favorite screen-printing and stamping techniques. In total, there are 26 lessons/projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations.

First off, the photography in this book is beautiful, nice and bright and easy to see how things are made! There's mostly a lot of dyeing and fabric painting techniques, for clothes and home goods. There's also some pretty jewelry, knitting, crochet, soap and candle projects, a little bit of everything. This wouldn't be a book I would keep forever, but it's a good jumping off point to inspire some new clothes or decorations in my house.
