Simple Ways to Repurpose Old Materials Into New Family TreasuresBook - 2009
"Handmade Home 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. Projects include- Papa's Healing Cozy- This hot water bottle cover becomes a simple way to offer comfort to a sick child Baby Sling- A simple pattern for an object that offers so much to a small child refuge from the world and a place to lay their head next to a parent' heart Beach Blanket To-Go- Repurpose old sheets to create the perfect picnic blanket for special outdoor meals Cozy Wall Pockets- A creative solution for storing a child's small treasures."
