About the author
Charlotte Liddle and Lucy Hopping have worked as designers in the textile craft industry for the past seven years and have lots of experience developing step-by-step projects for books, websites, publications, and kit designs. Both have a lovely sense of color with a vintage-yet-contemporary approach to hand and machine textile crafts. Charlotte is the author of three textile books: Stitch and Sparkle, Stitch Divas, and Cute and Easy Quilting and Stitching (CICO).
Together with her friends, Charlotte Liddle has designed 35 easy-to-make projects, using a variety of crafting methods. If sewing is your thing, the photo pillow is a great way of capturing memories of fun times, or the fabric jewelry will make you stand out from the crowd with your own unique style. Those who are handy with needles and yarn will find knitting patterns for panda slipper socks, mittens, and a fashionable headband, while if you prefer papercrafts, you can create pretty paper bunting to hang up in your room, or photo accessories—glasses, bow ties, lips, and mustaches—for when you’re messing around with your camera. And there are even more crafts to try—from tie-dyeing a T-shirt to making nail polish jewellery. Divided into three chapters—For Your Bedroom, Clothes and Accessories, and Party Time—the book also includes a techniques section to help you with anything you may be unsure about.
