“Feelin groovy?
Keep the Faith, baby, because hippie crafts are back in style. If you lived through the '60s, you'll be happy to see your old favorites again. If you didn't, here's your chance to find out what it was all about.

The far-out projects you'll find here aren't exactly the same as the hippie designs people grooved on in the decade of peace and love. While you'll recognize the source of inspiration, we've reinterpreted the old standards with new colors, materials, and embellishments that say today. Create fabulous hippie chic fashions, from a pretty macrame purse to a cool suede fringe vest. Bring some of that wild '60s flair into your pad by tie-dying throw pillows or crocheting a granny square afghan.

Whether it's a love bead necklace or a pair of bell-bottom jeans with flowered fabric panel inserts, you can make hippie crafts that are anything but square.”
