Description

If you have a fondness for vintage, want to own something completely original and made with care, without spending lots of money, it's time to get out your knitting needles, crochet hooks and sewing machines. Learn to make crocheted coat-hangers, a striped woolly scarf, upcycled summer bunting, cushions covers from vintage blankets and flower corsages and hair clips, and other knitting, sewing and crochet projects. 25 ways you can add individuality to your home or wardrobe, all of which would make perfect gifts too. Practical and project-based, with beautiful photography, this book covers all the basic knitting, crochet and sewing skills and projects are suitable for beginners, so you can sharpen your skills as well as your creativity. You are also encouraged to reuse and recycle, with inspiring ideas to breathe new life into old clothes or blankets, use up left over yarn or scraps of fabric, even transform a piece of furniture. The end results will be priceless and full of history and personality - no shop bought versions will compare. The content of this book is adapted from Homemade by Ros Badger and Elspeth Thompson, first published by Collins in 2009.show more
