Scandinavian style has never been more desirable, with its emphasis on natural materials, light and fresh colours, and classic motifs. Mia Underwood inherited her love of making things from her Danish grandmother, and she understands both the techniques and the heritage of crafts from Scandinavia. In Nordic Crafts she presents 35 new projects which reflect the traditions of the Scandinavian countries, with a modern twist. Projects for the home include a novel bread basket, and a deer's head made of fabric. For a child's room, there is a doorstop in the shape of an elephant, and a woodland scene to hang in the window. For playtime, felt animal masks will fire your child's imagination, while nisse--mischievous elves--are easy to make from scraps of wool. The Danish love of coziness and comfort--'hygge'--is reflected in patterns for felted slippers, embroidered mittens, and snoods for both adults and children. Finally, there are things to make for the celebrations that come round every year, including the all-important Christmas decorations, and ideas for decorating your home at Easter, in the Scandinavian way.
