Make Do and Mend book
Crafting is almost as popular as going out and buying something ready made and the retailers have cottoned on and will try and sell almost anything to you. However, this book shows you how to reuse stuff you already have, without shelling out any more, and is stacked full of fun and inventive things to make on your own.
This book is £4 from the Imperial War Museum shop.
