Handmade CountryBook - 1997
Original ideas for creating, decorating with, & displaying vintage crafts. Handmade is the secret ingredient of beauty. Now, Country Living Handmade Country shows readers how to bring handmade mementos, furniture, & objects from the past into our homes today, as well as how to transform old objects to serve completely new functions -- a shoemaker's rack becomes a colorful storage shelf; beautiful new pillows are stitched from old chenille bedspreads. Also, more than twenty-five craft projects are shown in detail with precise step-by-step directions & how-to drawings, including hooked rugs, twig-decorated objects, & boxes covered with luminous papers. Includes more than 150 full-color photographs.
