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.
The winner of our Handmade Glamping book giveaway is Hannah Ackroyd of East Yorkshire – yay!
