Synopsis

The Homemade Home 50 Handmade Projects to Create the Perfect Home for Next to Nothing by Sania Pell

With the same chainstores to be found on every high street and in every shopping mall, it can sometimes seem difficult to inject individuality into your home without paying designer prices. Now The Homemade Home provides the solution. Designer and stylish Sania Pell provides 50 inspirational yet easy projects for you to make, all for next to nothing. Turn basic white bed linen into something special by adding ribbon borders and embroidered panels, and update lampshades by recovering with fabric or paper. Give old wooden furniture a facelift by repainting and adding paper collage decoration. Recycle glass jars into stylish tealight holders, and use old teacups as pretty plant holders. Create family heirlooms by framing special pieces of children's clothing, or display tiny treasures in wooden box frames. Turn felted sweaters into appliqued cushion covers or cosy scarves, and use the contents of your button box to revamp an old cardigan. With easy to follow instructions and artworks, this book will inspire you to get out the paintbrushes and dust off the sewing machine, and create a truly stylish and individual home.
