About The Book

Transform your home and make unique gifts using string!

Transform your home and make unique gifts using string!

Follow Lucy Hopping’s simple instructions to create a whole host of stylish home accessories to update your décor. In the first chapter "Display and decorate," you’ll be able to make a cool geometric lampshade, get organized with embroidered storage baskets, or revamp a bare wall with a large piece of wall art that consists of lots of little canvases which combine to make an impressive deer. Wrap your furniture in string too—there are projects to transform your chairs, decorate a table, and stitch rainbow curtains.

All the creations in the second chapter "Accessories and Jewelry" can be worn, so you can be a walking work of art! There are embroidered buttons to embellish a cardigan, a vibrant neon necklace that makes a statement, and even a cute pineapple purse that will liven up any outfit.

In the final chapter, "Artful gifts," you can use all your new skills to make your friends and family beautiful gifts such as pretty stitched notebooks for the student in your life, a trendy arrow cushion for a new home, ceramic hanging decorations for Christmas, and why not whip up gift boxes and gift tags as the perfect finishing touches?

Start with the simplest projects and progress to more complex designs such as the intricate string art owl, guided every step of the way by clear step-by-step illustrations and a comprehensive techniques section.
