Today’s the day that the third and fourth books in Quadrilles Simple Makes series hit the shelves. First off it’s Scissors, Paper, Craft (which you may have noticed me mentioning) written and styled by moi and secondly (but of equal importance) is the lovely Hook, Line and Crochet by Ros Badger a delightful book of 20 cute and quirky crochet projects. (more of which later)
Scissors, Paper, Craft is my favourite book so far, it uses the most humble of materials to make some really exciting projects. There’s 30 different things to make ranging from simple animals made from one piece of A4 and lovely little garlands and bunting to more elaborate feather mobiles, light up water lillies and a little bit of Japanese book binding too. There are giant paper bows perfect for decorating your house for a party … a step on from the tissue paper pom pom and cute little bird boxes with post-it note roofs and a place to keep your paperclips.
Anyhoo, to celebrate the launch of Scissors, Paper, Craft I have a signed copy of the book for the person who can tell me what craft topic they would like to see in a Simple Makes book. So far we’ve had Embroidery, Felt makes, Papercraft, Crochet and coming up next spring are books on Printing and Knitting. (I’ll be picking a winner at random in a weeks time so any comment you leave in the comment box will be counted as an entry (be kind!). Remember to follow the blog too as then you’ll be the first in the the know for more upcoming giveaways and competitions)
Marie Claire.co.uk had lovely things to say about the new book, they’ve also got pictures of some other projects. Click below to read …
Right I’m off to do some aformentioned printing. Good luck!
