About the author

Lucy Hopping graduated with a degree in Textile Crafts and now works as an art and craft product developer in the toy industry, designing and developing craft kits for children. This has taken her to UK and international trade fairs and to showrooms and factories in the Far East. In her spare time, Lucy enjoys making stitched, crocheted, and knitted products to sell online and at local fairs. She is passionate about inspiring young people to get crafting as well as making items in her own right. She is the co-author of Handmade Glamping and a contributor to Crafting for Girls, both published by CICO Books. The author is based in London, UK.

You’ll love these 35 stunning projects. All of them are made with easy craft techniques, including braiding, macramé, and weaving. Many of them use basic materials, such as embroidery floss, beads, and ribbon, with the addition of leather, brass nuts, and rhinestones in some of the more advanced projects. Choose from four chapters: So Sweet, with ideas in a pastel palette; Tribal Attitude, inspired by Native American and African designs and boho chic; Nautical Knots—think stripes and seaside charm; and Neon Brights, infused with zesty colors and stand-out features. As well as bracelets, you’ll find cuffs and headbands to make, and can even learn how to cover your headphone wires in braided floss. All the projects have clear step-by-step instructions and artworks, plus a skill level so that you can begin with the simplest designs and then try more advanced ones.
