I recommend you get on yer bike and get the Guardian and Observer this weekend for 2 pull out guides 'Do it yourself and save' packed with helpful tips, advice on fixing and enhancing things that may have broken or in need of a new lease of life in your life.
Part 1 features some instructions on how to make cushion covers and re cover an old chair or sofa that I've put together!
Part 1: Home + Garden
Part 2: Grooming and Gadgets
Thankyou to Perri Lewis for commissioning me, who not only has a great Make and Do Blog but features in this great film on how to make over your bicycle. Shame the owner of bicycle (which I came across a couple of summers ago along the Regents Canal) didn't get the same help!
