Overview

Weekend Handmade: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Crafting by Kelly Wilkinson

In Weekend Handmade, author Kelly Wilkinson encourages readers to celebrate the joy of crafting, both for the satisfaction of making something by hand, and because the finished items serve as reminders of time taken to slow down and create – no matter the day of the week.
 
The book is organized into three sections: Make offers projects to wear or decorate with; Grow presents projects inspired by gardens, fields, and farmer’s markets; and Gather spotlights projects that enrich casual get-togethers.
 
With clear, step-by-step instructions, every project in Weekend Handmade —from aprons, tablecloths, and marmalade to a memory box and a chandelier—can be completed in a few hours or over the course of a weekend.

Praise for Weekend Handmade:

“Kelly Wilkinson always felt like her crafty side was at odds with her job as a journalist, but now she has a book that incorporates both. Weekend Handmade provides instructions for quirky crafts that virtually anyone can do. All these crafts have a quirky feel—think hipster Martha Stewart—and they’re pretty simple, too.”

—NPR Weekend Edition 

“Think you can’t make anything—or, more importantly, that you don't have the time to? Wilkinson's undowdy projects—luminarias, table decorations—are all designed to be completed in a couple of hours.” —Entertainment Weekly

“The simple botanical luminarias in . . . Weekend Handmade disprove the notion that do-it-yourself projects don’t turn out as they appear in books.” —Los Angeles Times 

“Everyone’s a crafter these days, including your mom (quilts with Jon Stewart’s face stitched on them) and your cubicle mate (carved fruit statues he sells on Etsy). But Weekend Handmade presents simple projects for the glue-gun and table saw–impaired.” —Washington Post Express

“Ample projects to feed your creative side.” —Daily Candy

“This would be a fabulous addition to any library and a perfect hostess gift.” Dooce.com
