1. Button and Stitch
I have thousands of buttons, an avid collector. I have buttons in all colours, shapes and sizes. It will certainly be interesting to see what is suggested to use my button stash.
I have just opened the book and it shows you how to make your own felted bunny buttons and felted ball buttons. Does it get any better when I can increase the collection.
2. Fleece Fantastic
I always have scraps of fleece as I use fleece to make bits and bobs for the Grandchildren.
I have already made headbands for Lily and Daisy and love the patterns for the animal badges. I feel this book could quickly become dog eared.
3. Embellish Me
A book of my dreams with all sorts of stunning ideas. Not only does it show you how to print and dye fabric there are so many ideas of how to decorate.
...of course there were buttons...
Inspirational, it needs a proper read rather than the quick glimpse that I am doing.
4. Sock Puppet Madness
A gift that immediately makes you smile, chosen by the girls because Granny loves a puppet show. They know me so well.
I have been looking for a puppet theatre on my travels around the car boot sales but no luck so far. Maybe my husband could make one??? It would certainly get a lot of use.
5. Felt, Cut and Sew Unique
A great book on how to upcycle jumpers into some amazing creations. A throw caught my eye that would be beautiful in the winter months it takes about 8 felted wool sweaters to make.
Wool garments are now on my list for buying from the charity shops and car boot sales so that I can give it a go.
Five books that I hope will be of some interest and inspire you to have a go at creating something.
See you soon.
