Book Description

5 April 2012
Following the success of The Homemade Home, Sania Pell now turns her attention to a younger audience, creating a stylish, innovative, contemporary and child-friendly collection of 50 projects for parents to make with and for their offspring. There are ideas for decorating the nursery and children s bedrooms, with great storage tricks, display ideas, and decorations ranging from a nautical-themed bed throw to a banner embellished with silk flowers. When it s playtime, choose from making planes from balsa wood, sewing simple yet fun costumes, or creating a fabulous play boat from a metal bath tub and a canvas sail. There are suggestions for the garden too, including a waterproof picnic rug and a play tent which utilises the washing line rather than cumbersome tent poles. There are even quick ways to customise children s highstreet clothing by adding collars, applique and buttons. If you can thread a needle, hold a paintbrush or wield a glue gun, you will find this book packed with inspirational ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book for those with nimble fingers 6 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had seen one of the items featured in this book in a magazine: the instructions were a bit sketchy - so it was worth buying the book to get full details of how to make the item. I'd say that one would need to be a pretty competent needle man/woman to be able to make many of the items - but there are some lovely ideas. I'm about to move on to the next one. Would have been useful to be able to access an index before buying so that one could have seen how many of the things were of interest. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars cool and easy chic for all kids 3 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Stunning and packed with really inspirational ideas for any parent to make for all age groups of children. I didn't want to put it down but my 12 year old daughter Isabella got hold of it and ear marked her favourite projects straight away. The design work that Sania Pell has created is something so precious you would want to do if just for a special keepsake.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worthy the money 7 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Book looks lovely. Its nice to tuch it, its nice to feel it. Pictures, print and design of the book are lovely but thats all. Its not enough of projects, not enough of pictures. I was expecting to find much more in this book. Especially for the money I've paid for it. It will end up sitting on my shelf.
