$24.95 $19.99

Glorious needlework, wonderful knits for children, clever quilting, decorating essentials, irresistible toys, lively folk art and pretty stencilling themes. These are just a few of the lovely projects presented in each issue of Handmade, The Australian Women's Weekly's craft magazine. But, of course, some projects are more popular than others, some, tin earlier issues long out of print, have even fused photocopiers with over use. This is a collection of those favourite projects.

Here you'll find the Bananas in Pyjamas jumper, the Banksias and Honeyeaters tapestry cushion, the Wreath of Native Berries cross-stitch sampler, the little maid rag dolls and the most cuddlesome knitted koala ever. They are just a few of the 120 all-time favourites gathered together in this beautifully presented volume.

Handmade magazine has been entertaining and instructing both Australians and New Zealanders for over a decade and has been a showcase of the talents of many of Australia's top craftspeople and designers. Tonia Todman, Nerida Singleton, Marianne Porteners, Vivienne Garforth, Diana Cross, and Lorelle McIntyre are just a few whose work has been featured and is included in this collection.

Like it's big sister, The Australian Women's Weekly, Handmade magazine has a family audience always at heart and this too reflected in The Best of Handmade. Here you'll find projects where practicality always marches hand in hand with beauty and where the needs of busy mums to create for a family are thought of alongside the needs of those, perhaps with more leisure time, to create with needle, brush, paste or polish, handworks of great beauty.
