24 projects to sew + knit + crochet + craft + repurpose
Let’s make some memories. Handmade Heirlooms invites readers to create projects that have significant meaning for the maker or the recipient—projects that celebrate the future, relish the everyday, and honor the past.
Handmade Heirlooms is a craft book that emphasizes the significance of handmade pieces in our personal histories and prompts readers to sew, knit, and craft with intention. Readers will be inspired to create pieces that can be enjoyed now, then handed down in years to come and used by future generations. Heirlooms allow us to reminisce and make connections throughout our lifetimes. They are treasures made and handed down with the intention of being used and loved. Their value goes beyond form and function—their significance is enriched by every life they touch across generations. The projects in this book celebrate the role heirlooms play in our lives by encouraging the making of special items that can be gifted, enjoyed, and handed down.
