Like the original, this follow-up to Breier's popular It's a Wrap book features projects created using a simple wrap, coil, and sew technique--begin with a clothesline, wrap it with fabric strips, and coil it into a unique and beautifully textured work of art. This second edition, which contains more than 20 new project ideas, also introduces readers to several new shapes including triangles, hearts, and a figure eight. These items can then be customized and embellished using beads, buttons, yarns, coils, and dimensional flowers--all ideas that are covered in the book.
If you loved It's A Wrap you will be thrilled with Susan Breier's latest book. The instructions are clear and easy to understand (which is a lot for me to say because I have a tough time reading and understanding instructions). Another thing I think is really neat about Susan's designs is the clothesline she uses to wrap in fabric. I much prefer this use of a clothesline!
It's A Wrap II shows Susan's easy method of how to wrap clothesline with fabric to make bowls, as well as make exciting new shapes, handles, lids and totes. This book contains 20 new designs with excellent instructions and photos. This book goes beyond the basics, such as ideas on how to enhance fabrics with paint. Susan shows you how to make circle baskets, triangle baskets, square baskets, heart-shaped baskets, and more. There are some cool ideas about embellishing these projects too.

There are insights on how to make circle baskets, triangle baskets, square baskets, heart shaped baskets, and more. I also loved the inspirational insights on embellishing these projects. And I was certainly inspired by all the insights on how to make purses and totes using her techniques.
Overall, I'm delighted with this new book. It is an inspirational book that will help anyone create wonderful bowls, totes and purses for use in their home, or to share as gifts. I think you'll love it too!
I was also impressed to learn that Susan's first book, It's a Wrap, is still in print! Yes, it is in its 10th reprinting, as it is such a popular book. So, go get a copy of It's a Wrap II soon. I'm sure this book will be a sell out very soon! And while you are at it, if you don't already have a copy of the original It's a Wrap, I encourage you to get a copy of it too.
