Handmade Glamping book

HG2 What do you get if you combine camping and crafting? Well, for a start, this lovely book, Handmade Glamping, by Charlotte Liddle and Lucy Hopping (CICO Books, £14.99) with photos by Claire Richardson. It’s got 35 top ideas for creating retro-style accessories using crafts such as knitting, crochet, quilting, embroidery, patchwork and applique.

There are ideas to make from scratch – knitted cushions, crocheted bunting and a rolldown blind to sew – and others that ‘upcycle’ what you might have already – cushion covers from lacy tablecloths, re-decorating vintage plates and jazzing up a beach towel.

Each project is explained step by step, there’s a chapter to help you brush up on your craft skills plus templates to help with the projects.

HG5So if you’re looking for inspiration for gorgeous decorations for you camper van (or caravan, beach hut or holiday home), this may be the book for you.

And if you like your handmade glamping already made – including bunting and crocheted items – take a look at our Shop page, which will take you over to our Etsy shop, the Little Purple Camper Co.
