offers simple sewing and craft projects for the home that reflect the needs, activities, and personalities of today's families. Filled with thirty-three projects made by reusing and repurposing materials — from vintage feedsacks to old sheets and towels — and including some projects that children can help with, all of the items here offer a practical use in the home.
Amanda Soule does much more than simply present a collection of handmade items; she reveals crafting as a lifestyle based on the principles of consuming less and reusing more, appreciating the earth, and connecting to our families. This is a craft book that gives you the tools for creating a life — and a home — full of beauty, integrity, and joy.
