Projects in the book either use upcycled materials (an apron out of an old men's shirt, softie out of an old sweater, bag out of tyvek mailing envelopes), organic materials or vintage materials. Includes both clothes and household items. One positive thing about this book is that it includes full-sized patterns (you just need to hope that the copy you check out still has them in the back!). I've found it pretty easy to use patterns like this by tracing them onto tissue paper to make myself a copy.

I thought this book was useful and well-organized. I wrote a detailed review on my blog here:
