Beci Orpin: Make & Do

Beci Orpin is a bit of a legend in the crafty/creative scene in Melbourne. Her third book is about making nice things for the home. There are chapters on using textiles, some of which require sewing, paper, wood and another on found objects. They vary in complexity and difficulty, and Beci actually gives a difficulty guide. Some of the items are wearable, some are functional and some are just nice to look at. The photography and styling in themselves are inspiring.

I am tempted to have a go at the Tote Bag and the Paper Brooches. I’ll keep you posted if I do!

It’s a hardback, and $39.95.
