BOOKLIST Nov 15, 2018 Fashion designer Macdonald (Fabulous Pompoms, 2015) takes a bead from his fellow crafter-author Emily Dawe (Paper Christmas, 2018) with a focus on holiday-themed pom-poms, a popular and quick craft to adopt. In fact, speed seems to be the essence of his 33 designs, perfectly suited for most careful hands to make at home. Nonetheless, all include color photographs, materials, tools, and instructions. What can a pom-pom be transformed into? His and hers gift toppers, a colorful garland, and, as a nod to his expertise, bauble napkins that could be spotlighted on the pages of Better Homes & Gardens. Includes templates. -- Barbara Jacobs, BOOKLIST Nov 15, 2018 issue
