Must Read Book List for Green Crafters

Inspiration abounds on the internet these days, but I still find great comfort in picking up a real book. I have loaded up the shelves in my craft room with some great reads for the beginning and green crafter. Here are my top recommendations.

Crafty Reuse

Sewing and Fashion


  • Printing By Hand by Lena Corwin – great book on the basics of printing by hand including tools and techniques
  • Lotta Prints by Lotta Jansdotter – inspiring projects and patterns from an icon in hand printing


  • Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco – a must read for every crafter who plans to sell their goods for hobby or for a living

I am a work-at-home mom busy chasing after my son and establishing my eco-business, Tiny Décor. I also write the Tiny Décor Blog aimed at modern parents trying to go green for their kids. Tiny Décor has allowed me to turn a passion for sewing, craft, and environmentalism into a business. Blog writing has become an outlet for me to share my experiences going green, being a parent, and loving the planet.
