The Complete Book of Retro Crafts
The Complete Book of Retro Crafts - Collecting, Displaying & Making Crafts of the Past by Suzie Millions. Library Call No. 745.5, ISBN: 978-1-57990-869-0 Lark Books, 2008 What a wonderful and fun read! First, it's from Lark Books so I knew it already had potential before I even opened it. But you will also love flipping through the pages, looking at her amazing collection of craft kitsch, along with projects you can create. I bet you'll want to make the Bread Wrapper Apron (page 166), too. Remember those "Saucy Tea Cup Cuties"? She includes a brushstroke chart to help the drawing-impaired like me get the faces down right. Lots of hints, ideas and even a gift-giving chart matching appropriate projects for appropriate occasions. You'll be glad you added this book to your reserve and/or to buy lists.
