Vintage Made Modern

Transforming Timeworn Textiles into Treasured Heirlooms

Create modern heirlooms using vintage materials—a collection of 35 innovative projects that showcase the exceptional beauty of timeworn textiles.

Every handmade project has a story to tell. In Vintage Made Modern that story is given more depth through the materials used: textiles with histories all their own. From Granny’s well-worn apron to a threadbare family quilt or a tattered tea towel you picked up at the thrift shop, every fabric and textile has a tale to tell. With a little resourcefulness, some gentle care, and a bit of creative repurposing, the simple sewing and no-sew projects in this book breathe life back into these treasured textiles, refresh their beauty, and create new memories. Vintage Made Modern will have you collaborating with makers from the past and continuing the stories they began long ago, becoming part of the narrative yourself in the process.
