This book draws on a style that is found somewhere comfortable in our memories, things we remember from our grandparents and parents - a pattern on a piece of fabric, an old photograph or a lovely brooch. Things which though they're old, have now become fashionable again. This book shows you how to make over 15 lovely projects - ranging from brooches, gloves, guest towels and scented cushions - using genuine family keepsakes, or fabrics, trimmings and other knick-knacks that have a nostalgic feel and style.
