25 beautiful craft projects to blow your blossoms by Hannah Read-Baldrey
If flowers and crafting are your passions then this is your book, flower power for the twenty first century.
Hannah Read-Baldrey, who incidentally models her own makes throughout, is very stylish and her creations are equally stylish.
Included are projects for both the home and to wear. There are 25 different makes covering a variety of crafts. Many are easy to do and accessible with sewing, sticking, paper crafts and crotchet. There are unusual items such as a resin covered floral phone case and dried flower resin panes. Making floral bath bombs and sugar craft flowers and white rose marshmallows are also included.
I adore the fake tattoo and the many fashion projects such as the three dimensional fimo Poppies that are made to enhance a pair of plain black sunglasses.
Many of the projects are the adornment of existing garments such as The Killer Heels, a pair of mules decorated with 3D leatherette Hellebores.
A black bomber jacket is up cycled with fabulous sequin flowers. My most favourite item in the book is The Frida Flower Crown made from velvet lined with satin. I shall be making myself one as soon as I have finished this review.
Lovely photographs by Tiffany Mumford.
