“For fun and giggles.”—Associated Press

“Small-minded is not a bad thing when it comes to crafting.”— OregonLive.com

“How do you make cute crafts even cuter? By shrinking them, of course! But cuteness is only part of the appeal—these crafts also use up the random odds and ends that most crafters accumulate as part of their creative process. From tiny stuffed cats and dogs to two-inch tall greeting cards to an impossibly cute mini-solar system mobile, there's inspiration here for crafters of all types. Of course, it takes a lot of talent to work with tiny pieces of fabric, felt, clay, and paper, but with results this sweet, it's worth a try.”—Library Journal
 
“Fun guide to making all sorts of wee crafts.”—Austin American Statesman
