Thanks to Theresa for sending her autographed book together with some sample supplies to me for the book review and project testing. This books offers colorful projects to give and wear; from rugs, pillows, tableware, baskets, bags and wearables like a belt, brooch, bracelet and more. This is the book that inspired me into locker hooking crafts. If this is your first time trying locker hook craft, you can buy the kit from Color Crazy online shop. Basically you can get all you need for locker hooking there, from tools to materials. This is my autographed copy and I am in love with it. I am going to try out the projects with the sample Theresa gave.
