Book Description

14 Oct 2010
Be inspired by this gorgeous collection of homemade gifts. Everyone loves to give presents, but instead of an expensive, impersonal store-bought gift, why not make something by hand that the recipient will adore? Here, Catherine Woram presents 35 projects for a range of lovely gifts to make at home using a variety of crafting techniques. Divided into four sections - Celebrations, High Days and Holidays, Saying Thank You, and Babies and Children - there is a gift for every occasion. The embroidered jewellery roll makes a beautiful birthday gift, or for a foodlover, you could make some sweet Easter biscuits in a hand-decorated basket. Show mothers how much they are appreciated with the intricate beaded corsage brooch, while fathers will love the picture frame decoupaged with old map paper. For a baby shower, the gorgeous applique baby blanket is perfect, and older children will treasure the painted toy box for years to come. Also included is a section on unique ways to wrap and present your gifts, as well as a sheet of 12 stick-on gift labels. With a useful techniques section at the back plus all the templates you'll need, this is a beautiful collection of gifts for crafters of all abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homemade Gifts book 31 Mar 2011
This is a great book with lovely quick and simple ideas. Just what I was looking for to make some homemade gifts for a charity event. I am not great with a sewing machine but that is not required for many of the ideas in this book. Very happy with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but stunning 12 Oct 2012
By reidie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book had a nice variety of different projects which were not too complicated. I have worked through most of them with very good results, and I am by no means an expert crafter. You don't have to be a brilliant seamstress to handle any of the sewing projects either. The bit at the end with suppliers was useful. The only negative I can think of is that maybe very experienced craftspeople might find it all too simple, but for a relative beginner like myself it was great.
