Book Description

1 Sep 2011
There's something about a weekend that sparks creativity. For most of us, it's a stretch of uninterrupted free time when we can explore ideas and embark on new projects. And if the project is not too big or complex, we might even wind up with a beautiful finished project come Sunday night. Therein lies the magic of "Weekend Handmade" - every project in it can be completed in a few hours or over the course of a weekend. This book showcases projects that average craft dabblers (without any advanced skills in a particular genre) can complete successfully. The projects are divided into three chapters - Make (paper and textile crafts), Grow (crafts related to the outdoor world), and Gather (projects that bring friends and family together in an atmosphere where creativity and cosiness trump fancy courses and matching silverware). The project list includes paint-chip postcards, decoupage coasters, an appliqued tablecloth, a willow chandelier, a tea towel apron, and herbal salves. "Like Weekend Knitting and Weekend Sewing, Weekend Handmade" places crafting within the context of a casual, creative lifestyle.

This is one of those rare gems that is appropriate for all ages and even for those who don't think they can create anything. The author has amazingly beautiful and inspired projects which are explained through her reader-friendly words and gorgeous photographs. I now have Christmas presents ready for my closest friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handsome Book, Great Writing, Perfect Gift 19 Sep 2011
By E.D. - Published on Amazon.com
While I am not a crafter, it's hard not to be a fan of the author's intelligent, witty writing. The projects, the personal anecdotes, all add up to beautiful well-made book. I bought two copies for the crafters in my life -- and will probably buy a couple more copies as gifts.

By Kristin M Adams - Published on Amazon.com
What a gem for people like me -- love to be crafty but don't have the ideas or lots of time. This book is chock full of modern projects that really can be done in a night or weekend. Thanks, Kelly for helping the rest of us make, grow & gather!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crafting Projects 101 Gets an A+++++++++ 30 Mar 2012
By Ginny Mapes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Weekend Handmade gives the crafter more that 40 modern useful projects and ideas that can be completed in a few hours or over the weekend. Contents are arranged into Make (projects to wear and decorate with;) Grow (garden, fields, and farmer's market inspired;) and Gather (spotlights projects that enrich casual get-togethers.) There is a list of online resources and an index of projects and ideas. Author Kelly Wilkinson encourages her readers to celebrate the joy of crafting, "both for the satisfaction of making something by hand, and because finished items serve as a reminder of time taken to slow down, savor, and create--no matter what day of the week."

Book is filled with wonderful photography to give the reader lots of ideas to start with. Gather materials, friends, create, create, create! Buy the book, you'll love it.
