Favourites  |  April 25, 2017

Look at my new baby! This cute bundle is much quieter, cleaner than her sister! I am very happy to announce the birth of my new book, Roped In.

Let me try and convince you further:

Get ready to be roped into Gemma Patford’s creative and fancy world with her book, Roped In. Gemma is a self-confessed maker and master illusionist who’s managed to convince her friends and family that she has her life together. Born into a creative family, it was only natural that Gemma followed suit. Starting out in fashion and migrating to general craft projects, it is her rope vessels for which she’s known. Roped In is going to show you how to make them, as well as other inspiring projects – including a rope coil lampshade, pink rope floor rug, friendship knot earrings, little leg pantaloons, cat tuxedo, and a 3D gingerbread centrepiece.

Roped In is full of crafty do-it-yourself ideas that will make you appear both fancy and fabulous. Learn how to decorate and entertain, create festive holidays, make personalised gifts and discover your inner fancy. You may find yourself asking, ‘what makes Gemma the authority on crafty things, and how is she going to help me style up my tiny studio/dorm room/apartment while convincing?’ Answer: Gemma is very good at LIFE ILLUSIONS: Making simple things LOOK fancy. Let Gemma guide you past the smoke and mirrors and together you will create more than 30 projects to help you decorate, entertain, and dress up in style.
