Here at Heart Home we are constantly looking for inspiration and so we thought it was about time to give some back to our readers. It's competition time and we are giving away not one or two but THREE fantastic craft books to inspire you to get creative.
First up is Mollie Makes: Crochet: Techniques, Tricks & Tips with 15 Exclusive Projects. Crochet is big fashion news, and is becoming more and more popular among young crafters. This gorgeous new book from the team at Mollie Makes is the ultimate guide, aimed at complete beginners, and also perfect for those who have completed their first projects and are looking to move on. Each stitch is explained clearly, with step-by-step illustrations. A selection of 15 contemporary projects from an international range of crochet experts will demonstrate the different ways in which the techniques can be used. Includes ideas for using crocheted pieces around the home, as accessories and to embellish existing items. Projects include blankets, cushions, toys and gifts.
Next up is Fabric pictures by Janet Boulton. To call what Janet Bolton makes with fabric ‘patchwork’ doesn’t do justice to her creations – hers are images, pictures that capture fragments of an imagination that can strike anywhere, at any time.
In Fabric Pictures, Janet shows you how to create beautiful pictures on fabric. Taking you through her personal method, she will guide you to find the inspiration around you and teach you how to turn your creativity into a textile project and develop your personal ‘voice’.
The book is divided into two main sections – the first on how to find inspiration, the second on how to put your ideas into practice, complete with a step by step example that will show you every stage of construction from beginning to end. Just like in her workshops, Janet’s guidance in the book is friendly, reassuring and inspiring – once you finish your first project you won’t be able to wait to start the next.
