Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination. It is your expression of what is beautiful. Crafting is an art or trade which requires a special skill.
Chapter One offers various painting techniques for painting on ceramic, tin and fabric; how to create stamps, templates and stencils.
Chapter Two is devoted to sewing projects: reusable lunch bag, shopping bag, sandwich wrap, snack bag, produce bag and bulk dry food bag; a table runner.
Chapter Three is dedicated to felted wool projects: tea pot cozy, slippers, mittens, a glass cup warmer and dryer balls.
Chapter Four covers step-by-step instructions on basic embroidery stitches with illustrations for visualizing a completed stitch.
Chapter Five provides three crocheting patterns: a rag rug, chair pads and granny square vest.
Chapter Six introduces seven original knitting patterns designed by me.
Possibilities for designs and patterns are endless. Whatever craft you enjoy, keep discovering new ways to enhance that craft.
The Retro look is popular and history proves we bring back old styles, patterns and colors every couple of decades. Remember to reuse, remake, and recycle items from your own personal store. Using this theory is not only economical, but better for our environment.
