So I was in Half-Price books last week with my family, who were visiting from out of town, when something sparked my curiosity! I pulled it off the shelf and to my amazement - it was just what I was searching for :-)
Yes - here it is! A comprehensive and fun book that gives over 35 step-by-step instructions for crafting hippie-style. Funny thing is, I've done quite a few of these at some point in my life.
For example...the "God's Eye"
I made mine years ago, quite possibly in high school (but I just can't muster the nerve to say how many years that has been). I've moved a million times, but always seem to carry it with me & find a place for it to hang. I need all the 'protection' I can get =)
Another example...Latch Hook
I finished this up last October after buying it from the Salvation Army Family store for less than $3.00 - great for passing the time at my day job and turned out really cute. Now I just have to pick up some rug binding from the local hobby store and finish making it into a pillow.
Also, there are the Roadhouse Blues Bell-Bottoms - I'm SO happy I found this book so I can finish up what I started over a month ago with a pair of jeans. MY jeans seem to have pretty much come straight from this book. ...ahhh ~ Seredipity!!
There a bunch of other great projects in this book that I have done before...tye-dye, jewelry, a leather purse, dreamcatchers and candles, etc. Of course there are ton of stuff I haven't done, but look forward to learning the how-to's for.
If you still have doubts about my hippiness, check this out!
I was just scrolling through the "contents" and noticed that the vintage patch I got back in December was on the page. HA! I just sewed it on my new-to-me backpack a few days ago. How cool is that?!?!
Well, that about sums it up for my fantastic find. But you'll want to stay tuned - May is just around the corner and you'll want to follow me on my own Hippie Trip from Georgia to Woodstock. One full month of tree-hugging sweetness ~ Yipee!!!
