For the better part of a decade, she worked in book publishing and public relations in Sydney, Hong Kong and London, and as a freelance writer on the side. She was a regular contributor to Vogue magazine, writes for Australian Women's Weekly and her essays and articles have appeared in Dazed & Confused, The South China Morning Post's Lifestyle section, and various other magazines and newspapers in Australia, Hong Kong and the UK.

I love this book! Kelly Doust now has a great range of books involving crafts for children and adults, concentrating on using repurposed materials. The projects in this book include making door snakes, notebook covers, book bags, clothing, mobiles, pom-pom garlands, napkins, fabric boxes, pillowcases, pencil cases, finger puppets, face masks, bathrobes, cutlery holders and much much more. It is great value for money, a gorgeous book, and one to keep you and your children entertained for years!!
