Decorate your tent, tipi, motorhome, or camper van with any of the 35 stunning projects in Handmade Glamping.

Using a variety of crafting techniques including knitting, crochet, quilting, embroidery, patchwork, and appliqué, Charlotte Liddle and Lucy Hopping have created a wonderful range of accessories that will bring retro charm to your idyllic country getaway. Whether you fancy a quiet retreat to secluded beaches or are off to live it up at the summer festivals, you will find something to make your home-away-from-home-look-stunning, and feel cozy and comfortable. Divided into four chapters, Handmade Glamping starts with Recycling and Repurposing, which will show you how to make some stunning embroidered curtains using vintage fabrics, or the hexagonal patchwork scatter pillows to put on the camp bed. In Campfire Cooking there is everything you'll need for a romantic meal under the stars, including decorated plates, quilted placemats, and a picnic bag. Pretty Decorations has crocheted bunting to string outside, a cute cross-stitch picture to hang inside, and pretty storage ideas for small spaces that recycle jam jars and other household items. Finally, Outdoor Living comes with ideas for candle holders, a tent tidy, a wind break, and even a reupholstered deck chair.
