Overview

Hip stylist, fashion expert, and crafter, Kayte Terry presents a totally-cool wardrobe of garments and accessories, together with nifty home accessories in a technique- and project-packed volume filled with fabulous ideas for transforming store-bought “blanks” into must-have wardrobe pieces and home furnishings using practically every embellishment and craft technique imaginable.

The collection of 25 projects is detailed in more than 170 photographs and clear step-by-step directions, each original design inspired by the author’s years as a crafter and visual manager for the hip New York store, Anthropologie. An introductory course in all the basics of sewing, embroidery, crochet, felting, stenciling, and painting is featured, making embellishing such clothing and home accessories as a boho cover-up, a needle-felted shrug, trimmed skirts, jackets, sweaters, Tees, and tunics, as well as gorgeous glassware and chandeliers super-easy so that even beginners can embellish with confidence.
