It combines simple techniques to produce complex textile surfaces, and describes exactly how these effects are achieved with easy-to-understand step-by-step photographs and instructions.Many people have competent sewing skills but lack the confidence to create their own designs - this book will help them to explore their own creative potential to achieve effective and original designs.
