Christmas Giveaway Day 6: DIY Fashionista Book

Whoops slight delay for Day 6 as I was away and my internet access was not what I thought it would be! But better late than never....

 Now I like to think I'm quite crafty, but in reality I don't dedicate much time to being creative with anything else other than words and my camera but I love the idea that one day I will get round to making the things I keep getting ideas about.

If you need some crafty inspiration for your wardrobe then this book could be just what you need. It looks like 2013 is going to be another year of trying to to make do with what we have for most of us, so if there was a way that you could revitalise items from your wardrobe or swish up that charity shop find which is quite right, would you give it a go?

Well the new book by blogger Geneva Vanderzeil ( apairand-aspare.com) could be just what you need to guide you through a year of jazzing up, reworking, making and creating. Her new book DIY fashionista takes you through 40 step by step projects and they are handily graded in skill levels which means there is a good mix of ideas for beginners to more experienced makers and creators. So whether you want to rework that clutch bag, sparkle up some sandals or make a backless little black dress, this book could help you make do and mend your way through 2013. 

An ideal gift for those fashionistas who want to make more out of what they have - or perhaps they need convincing that they could try to re-work what they have before they spend their cash on new things....
