Homemade Gifts will spark your creativity. All the patterns and recipes in this book are simple and clear using step-by-step instructions. You’ll find the projects enormously satisfying to make for both beginner and expert crafters. Among the collection you will find birthday treats, including an easy-to-make make-up bag for the glamorous girl in your life, an apron for a keen cook and a garden journal for a green-fingered friend. Treat a special someone with a patchwork blanket, a knitted tea cosy or an embroidered tablecloth. Finally mark the occasion with a simply stunning birthday cake decorated in beautiful roses, heart shaped cookies for Valentine’s day or a knitted Santa for Christmas. With over 15 projects and unique gift-wrapping ideas you’ll never be short of inspiration with the wealth of projects in this delightful compendium of crafts.
