Product description

Everything Alice is a truly enchanting collection of 50 craft projects to make, bake and decorate. With each of the ideas magically brought to life by crafters Hannah Read-Baldrey and Christine Leech, the projects range from the supremely simple yet highly effective fabric-covered teapot planters to the wonderfully scented candles that fill china teacups and exquisite jewellery made from tiny dolls' house teasets. Alice's fantastical adventures in Wonderland provide the inspiration for each of the 50 makes, including a hand-sewn Humpty Dumpty doorstop and Cheshire Cat hand warmers, decorative playing card bunting and a shadow puppet theatre. Whilst the projects take the 'Alice in Wonderland' tales as their starting point, they all stand alone as gorgeous items in their own right. Choose from the irresistible beaded napkin rings made in the initials of each of your guests, the lavender-scented velvet dormice and an assortment of beautifully decorated cupcakes. The ideas and instructions for the makes are interspersed with instructions for fun party games and snippets of Wonderland lore, such as How to Become a QueenA", How to Run a Caucus RaceA" and How to Play Musical ChairsA". So follow Hannah and Christine down the rabbit hole into a genuine Wonderland of adorable craft ideas.

Hannah Read-Baldrey is a successful props and fashion stylist, renowned for her fantastical set designs and quirky handmade props. After studying at London's prestigious art school, Central St Martins, Hannah worked within television and film art departments, which led on to photographic styling. She has worked with leading international publications such as Vogue, Elle, Cath Kidston and Red magazines. Over the past few years she has joined forces with craft superstore Hobbycraft, coming up with ideas and themes for their magazine and website. Christine Leech has been an avid crafter since childhood, sewing menageries of felt animals, wardrobes of dolls' dresses and never buying a greetings card when a handmade one could be sent instead. She has over fifteen years' experience designing and art directing magazines, as well as a successful career as an illustrator. She has worked on titles including New Woman, Marie Claire, Look and Fabulous. In 2009 Christine helped to launch the Hobbycraft magazine; this is where she met Hannah. They have been working together ever since, most recently presenting a series of craft tutorials for Hobbycraft online.
