Klutz Crafts

Klutz has come out with some AMAZING arts and crafts books (seriously, we’re impressed) that come with pretty much everything you need to make: six great crochet projects; beautiful spool-knit bracelets, anklets and rings; easy-to-stitch sewing projects; six great knitting projects; and your own patchwork quilts!


Klutz Quilting: Design And Make Your Own Patchwork Projects

Klutz Quilting is trendy, triangular, terrific! This book, which gives you the tools to learn this extraordinary art, comes with square pieces printed to look like two triangles so that beginners can design and quilt exciting patterns from the start. Plus, its full of trendy projects you can make yourself: from toss pillows to a stylish shoulder bag. It even comes with a pressing tool that flattens seams without an iron!


Klutz Knitting: Learn To Knit Six Great Projects

Klutz Knitting has the instructions and materials to take you from the most basic steps of knitting (holding the needles, winding the yarn into a ball) to more complicated elements like creating wooly hats and making stripes. It breaks each task down into its simplest elements and uses a ton of great illustrations to give you a visual nudge in the right direction. Once you've got the basics down, Klutz shows you how to make projects like scarves, hats, purses and cell phone cases.


Klutz Crochet: Learn To Make Six Great Projects

Klutz has done it again with this learn-to-crochet set that will have you making projects right off the bat. Every step in every project is explained in plain language and illustrated in great detail (without confusing abbreviations, diagrams or codes). All the instructions have been tested by certified crochet know-nothings. Klutz Crochet comes with everything you need to get started, including two kinds of yarn, a crochet hook and a yarn needle. Projects include a chic scarf, super cute purse, stylish hat and more. It’s way cooler than Grandma's tea cozy!


Klutz Spool Knit Jewelry: Make Beautiful Bracelets, Anklets And Rings

Knotted and woven jewelry is always a hit with the crafty crowd. Klutz Spool Knit Jewelry comes with a customized knitting spool and crochet hook, along with elasticized cord in two different widths and a cool mix of colors. To add sparkle, it’s also got more than 500 beautiful beads you can use as bling in your designs. Make bracelets, anklets and rings 10 different ways, with countless variations possible.


Klutz Super Simple Sewing: Easy To Stitch Projects

Super Simple Sewing from Klutz is a neat little set of four sewing activities: purse, bracelet, bird and a door tag. Each project comes with pre-cut fabrics that have nicely sized and well-spaced perforations for super simple sewing! The needle is large, plastic and not sharp (perfect for small hands) and the thread’s got a good weight and thickness for beginners. Snap-together cord-catchers cinch the thread together, so you don’t have to do any complicated knot-tying. The instructions are to the point and well illustrated. You’ll have tons of fun working on these projects – especially once you see that everything you make with the kit fits right inside the little purse. Great for hand and eye co-ordination, plus lots of fun!
