In an era when women set aside very little leisure time for themselves, let alone for their friends, Between Friends provides the perfect excuse to invite the girls over. Talented writer and designer Charlotte Lyons has brought together an imaginative array of craft projects that will help celebrate both your creativity and your most valued friendships. Between Friends presents ideas for 40 handmade craft projects, and all of the projects are perfect for sharing with a close friend or a group of friends. These delightful endeavors allow you to experiment with papier-mâché, collage, découpage, knitting, needlework, painting, sewing, rug hooking, quilting, scrapbooking, and doll-making. All projects are easy to make and lovely enough to inspire a lifetime of creative pursuit. Most are excellent gift ideas; better still, the materials needed can often be found right inside the pantry or craft basket. Projects are organized according to the amount of time they require: some (like the place card holders or frames) can be completed in an hour; others (like sachets, potato prints, and dressing room organizers) fill a leisurely afternoon. More complicated projects (such as scrapbooks, needlepoints, and friendship quilts) are to be savored over a weekend or longer. Between Friends offers plenty of inspiration along the way. Overflowing with lavish full-color photography, the book also includes profiles of the author's friends and their crafts; there are even a few recipes to enjoy while you work. With its easy-to-follow format, Charlotte Lyons's Between Friends is ideal for any kind of casual gathering, even if the get-together consists only of you and your closest friend. So make your phone call -- and let the fun begin!
