Sew a little love and give the gift of handmade! The long-awaited follow-up to Helen Philipps' bestsellers Simple Sewn Gifts and Pretty Patchwork Gifts, Modern Vintage Gifts is a bright modern collection of over 20 patchwork and sewn projects, designed to make you smile and have fun with fabric. Helen Philipps' trademark style and skill with design is translated into a stunning collection of highly 'giftable' projects for home accessories, toys and gifts. The projects are all simple enough for beginners yet desirable enough for more experienced sewers, exploring a wide range of sewing techniques including patchwork, quilting, paper piecing, applique, colour play, embroidery and embellishment. Projects include small quilts, dolls, bags, pillows, hearts, puppies, flowers, stars, angels and more - all in a gorgeous coordinating colour palette, with charming hand-drawn illustrations and exquisite styled photography.
