“The world of interior design is a fickle thing, with yesterday’s must-have becoming today’s throwaway. But it needn’t be that way!” Learn the art of upcycling clothing scraps, cardigans, CDs, and other household items into fashionable bookends, mobiles, and treasure boxes. Each chapter describes a common recyclable item and provides step-by-step explanations of how to “Go Eco” with it. Each project is based on readily found materials, and the easy-to-follow instructions are accompanied by brightly colored photographs and helpful hints. Back matter includes sewing how-tos, a glossary, a list of Web sites, and an index.

Series Review
These titles focus on using household objects that would normally be thrown away to create fresh new goods. The only items crafters might need to purchase would be things such as needles, thread, and PVA glue—all of which are inexpensive and easily obtained. Each title has 11 crafts, which include a “You will need” list and numbered instructions that are accompanied by brightly colored photos that clearly demonstrate the steps. Each volume relays information about recycling and environmental awareness. For example, Accessorizing That Look explains that mining for precious jewels often causes environmental destruction. In Pampering Yourself, readers learn that many beauty products use petroleum, a non-renewable resource. Revamping Your Room discusses how paper can take 5 to 15 years to break down, and it releases dangerous gas as it does so. Styling Your Wardrobe informs fashion fans that “The average plastic bag is used for just five minutes but takes five hundred years to decompose.” From the style of the projects (bracelets, headbands, treasure boxes, etc.) and the preponderance of pink, the target audience here is strictly female. Solid choices where craft collections need a boost.
