Made From Memories

There’s a certain comfort that vintage pieces provide, whether it is a scented pillow that sparks childhood memories of grandma’s house or a fading photograph from long ago. And it’s easy to create that special warmth with these 15 easy-to-complete projects that celebrate the enduring appeal of vintage crafts. Make a Beaded Flower Brooch that harkens back to a long ago era, or stuff muslin fabric with dried lavender to make Calming Bath Bags. Guests will love using the rose-themed hand towels, and the Knitted Baby Blanket makes a wonderful gift for that new arrival. Each project is accompanied by color photographs showing all the materials, techniques, and steps required. With the instruction here, crafters can inspire a whole new generation of vintage memories!

Vintage Projects

This book is a new format of the 2007 ‘Made From Memories’. It draws on a style that is found somewhere comfortable in our memories, things we remember from our grandparents and parents – a pattern on a piece of fabric, an old photograph or a lovely brooch. Things which though they’re old, have now become fashionable again. This book shows you how to make over 15 lovely projects – ranging from brooches, gloves, guest towels and scented cushions – using genuine family keepsakes, or fabrics, trimmings and other knick-knacks that have a nostalgic feel and style. Vintage Projects will be perfect for crafters wishing to create pieces for their home and to those who want to recycle old treasured items and turn them into something new.
