So long as your steppers have coil currents less than 1 amp that part would work fine. I've always worked with the Sparkfun easydriver. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10267
They also offer a bigeasydriver if you need more current. The control is reduced to a direction and step command and they support micro-stepping which is very good for smooth motion. Lastly, they are quite resilient even in the face of careless users who do things like reversing the input power and miss-wiring the motor.
One thing to note is that you can only step so fast before the stepper motor skips steps and stops moving altogether, so stepper motors typically are quite slow (hundreds, but not thousands of RPM). This may dictate some sort of gearing system or the use of a different motor depending on how fast the device needs to spin.
