My Craft Book Collection ♥ DIY & Baking Books

My Craft Book Collection
After posting my crochet book collection I thought it would be fun to post my non-crochet craft and baking books. A few years ago I got rid of most of my craft books but decided to keep these five books. Five books probably don’t qualify as an impressive collection but whatever. I honestly don't purchase that many DIY books anymore because most of my DIY projects ideas come from Pinterest or blogs.

I got most of these books before I started crochet or at the same time, I was learning how to crochet my beginner days. I've always been a creative person but before I was interested in crochet I took my creativity through DIY projects some featured in these books.

Collage Couture: Techniques for Creating Fashionable Art
I've always been a fan of collages. I used to make fashion collages on Polyvore all the time but wanted to make a real version which is why Collage Couture caught my attention. The book contains several ideas on how to make a fashion collage of your own and tiny projects such as frames, paper dolls, etc. It also gives some tips on how to draw human figures and clothing. I never made a fashion collage of my own but I found the pictures inspiring.

Cute Dolls: Let's Make Cute Stuff
Before I was able to crochet I was trying to learn to sew. I picked up this book because I wanted to improve my sewing skills and the illustrations were super cute. The book contains 20 different characters along with the sewing patterns. I tried making the bunny on the cover but failed miserably. Thanks to crochet my hand sewing skills have improved so I'm pretty sure I could make some of these dolls if I wanted to.

Carnival Towel Creations with Freddy
A couple of years ago my family and I went on a Carnival cruise. Every time they cleaned our room they would leave a towel creature on a bed. On the last days, they asked if we wanted a book on the towel animals and I begged my parents for one and that's how this book joined my bookshelf. The Carnival Towel Book contains 40 towel creations. To be honest, I've never made anything but it's a cute souvenir from the cruise.

The Hello Kitty Baking Book
I'm not much of a baker (I burn everything I touch!) so I don't own many baking books but I have a huge sweet tooth and Hello Kitty used to be my favorite character hence why I own The Hello Kitty Baking Book.
