French General: Treasured Notions: Inspiration and Craft Projects Using Vintage Beads, Buttons, Ribbons, and Trim from Tinsel Trading Company Cover

 

Staff Pick

Few people have been granted access to the basement of New York's Tinsel Trading Company... until now. In Treasured Notions, Kaari Meng of French General embarks on a long-awaited expedition into this hidden reservoir of vintage European embellishments and shows readers how they can use heirloom notions and flea market finds (as well as a few contemporary materials) to create treasures of their own. If, like me, you have a fondness for all things old-timey (gilt spines, lockets, and sepia-toned photographs, to name a few) and an incessant desire to make things, you will love, love, love this book.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

French steel-cut beads, mother-of-pearl buttons, spools of vintage ribbons . . . This exquisite book showcases the decorative bits flea-market hunters dream of. Hundreds of photos reveal rare European notions from the craft community's most beloved emporium, Tinsel Trading Company. With these vintage baubles as her inspiration, Kaari Meng shares projects that crafters can make with their own flea-market finds or with contemporary materials they have on hand: a button charm bracelet, whimsical petite prize medals, an heirloom-worthy memory book, shimmering handbags, and more. Kaari's colorful inspiration boards lend design guidance, while her tips and resources help notion-lovers build up their stash of treasures.
