Shops and markets selling vintage furniture and trinkets are an absolute treasure trove for anyone looking to inject some character and charm into their home without spending a fortune. Homemade Gifts Vintage Style takes this one step further by inspiring you to make or customise your own vintage wares and present them as gifts. Rather than throwing out worn jumpers and blankets, give them a new lease of life by turning them into cute animals for children's birthdays. Instead of ditching cushions that have seen better days, why not transform them into something unique with colourful and eclectic vintage fabrics. Sarah Moore shows you how with easy-to-follow photographs accompanied by simple instructions. Projects can be sewn by hand or accomplished with one simple stitch on a sewing machine so are suitable for all abilities. With their colourful vintage look these projects make the perfect gifts for any occasion - so lovely that you'll have to resist the temptation to keep them for yourself.
Sarah Moore is a self-confessed vintage addict and mother of three. She makes and sells vintage inspired pieces at local craft fairs and Christmas markets. She is the co-author of The Biscuiteers Book of Iced Biscuits, published in 2010.
