They’re so far out! These fab projects take 60s cool and update them to New Millennium funky. What a blast from the past: macramé, crochet, and lots of flower power to tap into nostalgia for the Age of Aquarius. Modern-day hippies will proudly handcraft and show off a back-in-style suede fringe vest, woven belt, and beaded headband. Want a crash pad where everyone will let it all hang out? Light it up with sand and rainbow layer candles, add some tie-dyed throw pillows, and invite guests to get cozy under a granny-square afghan in tasteful contemporary hues. Easy-to-
follow instructions detail every technique, and sidebars cover everything from hippie fashion, music, and art to the politics and big events that defined the era.

This craft book has 38 different projects using materials and directions from the 21st Century to create clothing and items inspired by the hippie era of the 1960's. Each project has a full color picture with directions. The book is also a compilation of hippie style and decor with historic pictures of famous persons from the time period as well as period photos showing similar garments and items compared to the projects. This was a great walk down memory lane for me, an old hippie, and wonderful to learn there are new ways to do tie-die, for example.
