Little Fixes Reviews


I am the kind of person who makes bathroom curtains from a bed-sheet, so I was delighted to happen across Little Fixes. Although I am a firm believer in hand-me-downs, and buying second-hand, I am always pleased to learn of ways to extend the life of my children's clothes, especially since they often get attached to certain outgrown garments.

Author Disney Powless offers penny-pinching creatives like myself free reign in the re-purposing department, encouraging us to see a too-small puffer jacket as a potential gilet, last year's cuddly sweater as wrist - or leg -warmers, and half-mast trousers as summer shorts.

What is more, this book of 54 restyling projects for toddler to teen includes instructions on how to insert that wonderful invention: an adjustable waistband.

I particularly like the way that all Powless' creations are worn by real kids, rather than models; their "before" and "after" expressions add another helping of joy to what is a practical and inspiring book.
