I've already extolled the virtues of crochet as a vintage craft / artform, so it will come as no surprise that this gorgeous book absolutely jumped out at me the moment I saw it!
Featuring 100 patterns for flowers, butterflies and vegetables (!!) for you to knit or crochet, it struck me that this would be the perfect way to create little lovelies with which to upcycle various items in your wardrobe.
Brilliant for embellishing hats, clothing, bags and even shoes; or making brooches and hair pieces, they're customisable to any colour you want, because you get to create them!
If you're a 'make do and mend' kind of gal, I suspect this would be an excellent reference book to add to your collection. If you can't wait, 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet is available from Amazon.
