The Homemade Home for Children : 50 Thrifty and Chic Projects for Creative Parents Hardback
by Sania Pell
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.
