Reader's Thoughts

Carmen

I mostly read this type of books for inspiration. The pictures were great. I have seen most of the techniques before, but my mind was blown when I saw the project on page 68, where she sewed baked clay with a sewing machine. I would never have thought to do that, but it looks great! Too bad I don't have a sewing machine!
