Rock Your Wardrobe review

Rock your wardrobe by Laura Torres
Get ready to rock out with these crafty projects! Create stencils to decorate your t-shirts. Style up your wardrobe with colorful tie-dyed socks or craft bracelts for your friends. With step-by-step instructions, fun, creative ideas and handy hints, you'll have the coolest wardrobe around. (back cover)

Summer vacation from school is just around the corner.....If you are looking for suggestions to keep your kids busy, this craft activitiy book I found at my local library may help. It is full of some fun ideas that older kids can do such as; decorated shoes, friendship braclets, rainbow shoelaces or a carry bag from an old t-shirt just to name a few.  The step-by-step instructions are easy enough to follow so you don't need alot of crafting expertise. Simple supplies such as glue, fabric paint, embroidery floss, rubber bands and recycling clothes that you already have will turn into some fabulous fashions. Great projects for rainy inside days or group get togethers with friends. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 8 and up.~

  1. Just in time for summer! Thanks for the idea. I will be ordering this promptly. When I was at BAM last month I saw a Star Wars craft book. It was awesome. My kids wanted it so much!
