Learn to create breathtaking works of wall art and statement home décor with simple macramé knots, natural dyes, 100% recycled materials—and ease. This gorgeous book begins by guiding readers 18 key knots and 8 beautiful patterns with clear, step-by-step photography. It then shows how to use natural dyes and how to pre-treat and dye your string. Key safety advice is given, as well as helpful tips for working with large pieces of macramé, knotting from an irregular-shaped support, and keeping an even tension. The 16 projects are divided into 4 chapters: Macramé on the wall, Macramé to hang, Macramé for indoors & outdoors, and Macramé to decorate. The projects range from reworked classics such as the wall hanging and the plant hanger, which have been given a fresh, Insta-ready twist, to a wreath, bunting, hanging bedside table, mirror hanger, rug, and tassels. Each project clearly explains which knots to use, the difficulty level, how long the project will take, plus photographs of the steps are provided as necessary. The projects are easy to follow, genuinely desirable and, best of all, really simple to make!

Laura Lovegrove is leaving behind her seamless life in London. Architect husband Adi has been relocated to rural Norfolk, a far cry from ultra-urban Ealing. Though Laura knew village life would be different, she didn't foresee a pokey cottage, nosey neighbours, errant poodles, and even an ex turning up. Chris had been her big love at art college and seeing him again is utterly confusing. Is she really so different from the impulsive student who once trawled charity shops for vintage treasures? When a fire all but destroys Laura's collection of vintage clothes, she's heartbroken. And seriously lacking in outfits. But, salvaging what she can, Laura makes do and mends - sewing purses, bags, even dog leads (which should solve the poodle problem). Soon, she's inundated with orders. But Adi is becoming more and more distant; it's like there's something he's not telling her. Can Laura make a stitch in time and pull her family back together again?
