One of my junk market obsessions is finding crafty books. As a child we had quite a few and my mum and dad made a LOT of my presents. When I got my first Tiny Tears they made it a cot and bed linen. When I wanted a Sindy dolls house they balked at the ridiculous price of a plastic piece of tat and made mine - along with a Princess Di style wedding dress for my Sindy. Looking back, the best presents I ever received were handmade as they were made with love.
Anyway I thought I'd share some of my crafty/ sewing books with you that I've picked up from various places:
|Freaky 1970s square toys|
|I really want to give the kite a go|
|I used to have this as a child and found it on Deptford Market last weekend. I love the illustrations.|
|Another one I found on Deptford Market that I used to have as a child|
|I had to buy this simply because of the illustrations.|
If you click on the image you can read what I've said about the books.
When you go thrifting or junking - do you look for particular types of books?
