Amazon Description:

Designer and stylist Sania Pell provides 50 inspirational yet easy projects for you to make, all for next to nothing. Turn basic white bed linen into something special by adding ribbon borders and embroidered panels, and update lampshades by recovering with fabric or paper. Give old wooden furniture a facelift by repainting and adding paper collage decoration. Recycle glass jars into stylish tealight holders, and use old teacups as pretty plant holders. Create family heirlooms by framing special pieces of children’s clothing, or display tiny treasures in wooden box frames. Turn felted sweaters into appliqueed cushion covers or cosy scarves, and use the contents of your button box to revamp an old cardigan. With easy-to-follow instructions and artworks, “The Homemade Home” will inspire you to get out the paintbrushes and dust off the sewing machine, and create a truly stylish and individual home.
