DESCRIPTION:
If you long to rediscover the homespun crafts of your grandparents' era, let Nicola Gouldsmith and Jacqui Mann show you how. The techniques of yesteryear remain relevant today, with the current emphasis on thrifty living and a yearning to return to a simpler way of life. The 35 projects in this book can be endlessly adapted and will equip you with lifelong skills that you, too, can pass on. The book has seven chapters, beginning with Soap-Making, in which you can learn how to make soaps such as rose and geranium soap (especially good for mature skins) and a lavender shampoo bar. If you've always wanted to learn Patchwork and Quilting, step-by-step instructions show how to create quilted deckchair covers and a vintage denim patchwork windbreak. In the Candles chapter, you'll see how easy it is to make candles with country herbs in vintage glassware, while in Weaving, weave with fabric to make a simple cushion, or try your hand at traditional Rag Rugs. Turn to Natural Dyeing, and you'll discover recipes for vibrant and rich colours. Finally, Reinvent will inspire you to take pre-loved items and give them a new purpose.
