Make it Your Own BookThis chilly September weekend read is the book Make It Your Own by Anna Alicia, the designer-maker behind eco-ethical home-ware and jewellery label A Alicia. Arriving just in time to inspire idle hands to get busy when trapped indoors with all that Autumn rain rolling down the windows.

My favourite projects include a Plaited Floor Mat, Knitted Wall Hanging (which I would need to get my mum or dad to help with, as I am a no hope knitter!), a really sweet Carton Paper Weight/Door Stop, and a very useful blanket basket. So many lovely things to make in here, simple patterns that are easy to follow and you can add your own finishing touches to.

I will let you know how I get on at making the paper weight soon, but right now my husband is beckoning for me to get out in the mud to help him excavate the front garden!

Make it Your Own is £16.99 and available now in the UK from Hardie Grant Books. Check out all the new things Anna is making over here at her blog x
