A wonderful craft book – Homemade Gifts Vintage Style by Sarah Moore

This book, as the title of the post suggests, is wonderful. Not only is the book itself a thing of beauty but the projects inside are the perfect mix of vintage, up-cycling, simplicity (in the good way!) and beauty. I quite genuinely want to make everything in this book.

I’ve had a go at a few things so far and below are some images so you can see how I got on. I made the pin-board first, using some map wrapping paper I bought about a year ago because I liked it but didn’t have a use for…until now. Also a great excuse to get out the ribbon box.

Driven by the chill here in London at the moment I moved onto making hot water bottle covers out of old jumpers and then gave the bunny pattern (which I absolutely love) a go in preparation for Mothers Day! My bunny is a little on the chubby side but mums don’t judge.

For anyone who loves the vintage style I definitely recommend this book. The website is lovely too… www.sarahmoorevintage.com




80s jumpers



I’ve just realised that I have inadvertently started a collection of 80s jumpers. To be fair the scotty dog jumper is actually a family heirloom (!) but what can i say…acrylic is great!
