Join us on a road trip with a difference. Intrepid crafters Cat Morley and Tom Waddington set off around the United States using recommendations and tips from visitors to their popular website Cut Out + Keep. Inspired by the distinctive history and culture Cat and Tom found in each state, they created a step-by-step project for every one. The states are brought to life with the authors' recommendations of cool places to visit, plus plenty of color photographs.
The projects cover the full range of crafts from knitting, sewing, and papercraft to jewelry making, as well as fun things to eat. Why not felt a Mini Cactus inspired by Arizona's desert scenery, or make a License Plate Notebook in tribute to Michigan's automobile heritage? A Hollywood Lampshade recreates the bright lights of California's movie culture, while an Fall Color Napkins celebrate New Hampshire on the other side of the continent. Whatever you choose, you'll take away new inspiration for your crafting life.
