Home-Made Vintage

by Christina Strutt

Home-Made Vintage Synopsis

40 easy-to-sew projects with a timeless appeal that will transform your home into a pure and pretty tableau of handcrafted detail. If you long to give your rooms a vintage air and country-cottage appeal, you will love the retro floral prints and timeless designs of Home-Made Vintage, your perfect guide to creating handmade, easy elegance in your home. The book offers simple-sew projects to transform every room into the romantic retreat you've always wanted. In this step-by-step guide, Christina Strutt shows readers how to make a wealth of projects for the kitchen and bathroom, conservatory and bedroom - and for giving as gifts as well. A skilled stylist and designer, Christina reveals how to create a look that is personal and unique, but not at all labour-intensive. Reusing old fabrics and accessories in new ways allows the vintage and modern to mingle beautifully - and also saves money and time. The charming projects highlighted in this delightful illustrated book include crisp linen chair covers, a chic fabric headboard, pretty flower aprons, dreamy voile bed curtains and soothing scented herbal pillows.
