Macramé, appliqué, decoupagé, and more! Cathy Callahan, founder of the popular blog Cathy of California, brings a fresh look to crafts from the '60s and '70s in Vintage Craft Workshop. With an eye toward style, not kitsch, superstar contributors including Diane Gilleland, Jill Bliss, and Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith offer their unique interpretations on 24 vintage projects. Brimming with inspiration shots straight from Callahan's vintage craft books, color photographs of the finished projects, profiles of the original crafters, and tidbits about this unforgettable era, this spirited book makes vintage crafts perfectly stylish for today. Plus, it's easy to get started with step-by-step instructions, how-to illustrations, perforated template pages, and a handy back pocket. Papiermâché never looked so good!
