Will sell krafttex
C&T's krafttex product is a washable, sewable, paper-based substitute for leather or vinyl. It's ecofriendly, easy to clean, and very durable, making it suitable for a variety of uses, such as handbags, household accessories (e.g., place mats or coasters), and jewelry. This collection of projects, compiled by Stash editor Cerda and featuring numerous designers who have written books or contributed projects to other Stash publications, serves as a commercial for the product. There's no denying that krafttex is versatile - the projects showcase painted, sewn, embroidered, distressed, and dyed variations - and the leatherlike appearance and durability without the need for specialty leather-cutting and -sewing tools is a selling point. Many of the designs are clever and will appeal to Stash's typical readership of young, hip, modern crafters, and the book will likely accomplish what it sets out to do, which is promote and sell krafttex. _VERDICT _ Crafters who enjoy sewing projects with a variety of interesting embellishments (and who don't mind a little marketing with their projects) may enjoy this collection.
