Abstract:

Recycle, Re-create, Re-enjoy! You don't even need a sewing machine to upcycle old sweaters into new wearables, blankets, pillows, and dolls that are fresh, playful, and utterly captivating. It's easy as felting the wool, cutting the pieces for your new project, and stitching everything together using simple hand-sewing skills. Noted designer Crispina ffrench shares her techniques and passion as she introduces you to the beautiful possiblities in old sweaters. "Crispina's blankets and throws and rugs are piled on and over each other on my beds, chairs, couches, and floors. She's a great artist who understands texture and how it adds individuality and comfort to a home, not to mention a car, or an old refurbished orange trunk seat!!"--Carly Simon "Crispina makes the most beautiful soulful blankets, pillows, and sweaters, out of people's old sweaters. In this amazing and magical book she shares her secrets so that you can do it too." - Ben Cohen, cofounder of Ben & Jerry's.
