4.0 out of 5 stars Recycled Home - interesting book, 25 Sep 2012
This review is from: Recycled Home: Transform Your Home Using Salvaged Materials (Paperback)
Recycled Home by Rebecca Proctor features 50 creative craft projects for the home, created using unwanted, salvaged or repurposed materials. The book covers a wide range of projects including hand painted towels, feature cushions, braided rag rugs and ragbag bunting. Some of these are made completely from upcycled materials, whilst others combine the use of new and old materials. A variety of crafts are covered including woodwork, paper crafts and of course sewing.

The book is organised into different sections that correspond with the different areas of your home, such as Sleeping and Bathing. I found some of the projects a little avant-garde for my style, but there is such a wide variety of projects featured in this book that there is bound to be a number of projects that appeal to most readers. Personally I love the Patchwork Tweed blanket, the Furoshiki Gift Bag (look out my sewing friends, this may well be how your Christmas pressies are wrapped) and I will be making the Mushroom rattle for a friend who's pregnant, well for the baby! :-)

I am quite enjoying this book but I would like it more if the printing style was better. It is a bit all over the place

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Recycled Home: Transform Your Home Using Salvaged Materials (Paperback)
Today, you could probably find all of the ideas that are in the book, online. DIY projects and reusing materials and objects is something a lot of people are interested in and because of that it is really easy to find similar projects and ideas online and it's cheaper. But there is something quite satisfying in having a beautifully illustrated book about that kind of subject. For me it is part of the fun to have a book in front of me instead of a screen. It is a lot more enjoyable. Also, this book has some really good ideas.
